Types Of Body Scrubs

There are a variety of different types of body scrubs available for purchase at bath & body shops. Here is an overview of the most popular types and their main uses.

Salt Scrubs 

Salt scrubs are one of the more abrasive forms of a body scrub. Salt is harder in consistency and is not uniform in shape, which for you means a deeper scrub.
Salts scrubs are generally packed full of natural minerals needed for great skin. The salt helps to remove bacteria from your skin as you spread it over your body as well as helps to open and cleanse pores. It is very important that you scrub very gently when using a salt scrub, as you don't want to accidentally scratch your skin.

Recommendation: Dry Skin, Normal Skin, Oily Skin, Mature Skin
(Not recommended for Sensitive Skin)

White Sugar Scrubs

White sugar scrubs are what would be considered a medium abrasive body scrub. The white sugar is soft enough that there's not as much worry of accidentally scratching your skin (as is the case with a salt scrub), but it's coarse enough to give you a good exfoliation. White sugar scrubs are the most popular scrubs as they suit most skin types.

Recommendation: Dry skin, Normal Skin, Oily Skin, Mature Skin
(Those with Sensitive Skin should use in  moderation and should discontinue use if irritation occurs.)

Brown Sugar Scrubs

Brown sugar scrubs are one of the more gentle body scrubs. Brown sugar has a very fine texture but it still rough enough to remove those pesky dead skin cells. Brown sugar scrubs are one of the few scrubs that are perfect for sensitive skin. The light abrasiveness tends to keep your skin from becoming irritated during and after your exfoliation session.

Recommendation: Dry Skin, Normal Skin, Oily Skin, Mature Skin, Sensitive Skin

Coffee Scrubs

Coffee body scrubs are becoming increasingly popular. The caffeine contained within coffee can provide your skin with a multitude of benefits. Caffeine can help to re-distribute fat cells, thus reducing the signs of cellulite as well as helping to keep cellulite from forming. Caffeine also acts as a vascular restrictor by shrinking blood vessels, therefore helping to reduce the visibility of varicose veins. All this work that caffeine does on your skin also helps in detoxifying your body.

Recommendation: All Skin Types
