When your skin feels dry, appears dull or could otherwise use a revitalizing boost, a body scrub can come to the rescue. Scrubs are some of the hottest items here at Sabon NYC, and we have an alluring array from which to choose. To make sure you choose the scrub that's best suited for you or a pal, take a moment to check out what they're all about.

What is a Body Scrub?

Body scrubs are exfoliating treatments that can be likened to a facial for the entire body. Most formulas contain some type of abrasive material, such as Dead Sea salt or sugar, along with aromatic oils.

You can find a wide variety of scrubs in a range of different scents and combinations. A few intriguing examples from our collection include Ginger Orange, Delicate Jasmine and marvelous Musk.

What Does a Body Scrub Do?

The main aim of a scrub is to exfoliate, or remove dead skin cells that tend to accumulate over time. Lingering dead skin cells can make your skin appear dull, and body scrubs are designed to whisk them away. In addition to removing dead skin cells, scrubs stimulate circulation and leave your skin fragrant and silky smooth.

What Is It Good For?

Scrubs are particularly good for revitalizing dry, dull and lifeless-looking skin. They can help perk up your skin after the long, drying effects of winter, give you a healthy glow in summer, and restore your skin's luster any time of the year.

What are the Benefits?

Removing dead skin cells exposes the glowing, softer skin below the rough exterior layer. You'll also find body scrubs can be amazing for:

  • Decreasing stretch marks and other blemishes
  • Clearing up or preventing body acne or other issues caused by clogged pores
  • Promoting skin hydration, with lotions more easily absorbed into your revitalized skin after using a body scrub
  • Reducing stress, with the relaxing, circular motions used for scrubbing give you an all-over body massage

One more perk is a confidence boost. After all, how can you not be more confident when your skin is looking its best?

How to Use Body Scrub

Body scrubs are best used during your bath or shower, after your skin is thoroughly wet with warm water. Apply the scrub directly with your hands, covering your body with a generous amount of scrub and using circular motions to massage it into your skin. Rinse in warm water, and then apply a body moisturizer as the finishing touch.

Although body scrubs are great for the skin on your body, they're not recommended for the more delicate skin on your face. You can get a facial scrub specifically formulated for your facial skin, and even a lip scrub for your lips.

You also don't want to go overboard with its use. Aim to use a body scrub about twice a week for best results. Also make sure to follow up with a moisturizing body lotion, gel or other treatment to make the most of your brand new glow.
