Beauty Buzz on Exfoliating Body Scrubs

Body Exfoliation is the Key to Rejuvenating Skin Cells

Through the process of exfoliation, dead skin cells are removed from the surface of the epidermis, helping to keep pores from becoming clogged and leaving skin feeling clean and refreshed. Clogged pores not only appear larger, but can cause blackheads and acne. In addition to the visual effects of smoother skin and smaller pores, removing dead skin cells speeds up the skin renewal process, allowing healthier skin cells to take the place of the dead skin cells.

Just as there are masks, scrubs and other exfoliating products for the face, there are specific products formulated to exfoliate the body. Body scrubs are a great way to obtain healthy, beautiful, glowing skin. In addition to exfoliating, most scrubs will also nourish the skin, leaving it feeling hydrated and healthy. Scrubs contain an abrasive material such as salt or sugar, an oil such a macadamia or almond oil to hold the mixture together, and they may contain a chemical exfoliate such as salicylic acid.

LaLicious, popular with celebrities, offers a line of scrubs made only with natural ingredients, leaving skin so soft after use that there is no need for lotion. Free of paraben preservatives and sulfate detergents, these products use cane sugar to exfoliate, with coconut oil and soybean oil to moisturize and condition skin.

Some exfoliating body scrubs may include chemical exfoliates to aid in the removal of dead skin cells. They work by essentially dissolving the "glue" that is binding the dead skin cells to the other skin cells. Some acids are mild, such as salicylic acid, while stronger alpha hydroxyl acid may irritate sensitive skin. Glycolic acid and lactic acid are added to scrubs for their moisturizing benefits. Bliss Body Scrub is a spa-strength scrub using perfectly round scrubbing beads to lift away dead skin, and leave skin feeling smooth and supple. The Hot Salt Scrub from Bliss stimulates the senses with rosemary and eucalyptus, while hydrating with algae and glycerin.

Mild scrubs are recommended for weekly use, while more intensive scrubs should be used less frequently.
