This Week’s Top Product Pick
But first, I have to ask: Do you know that there’s a difference between body scrubs and body polishes? I can’t lie and I feel a little embarrassed to say, but I didn’t realize there is a slight difference.
After experiencing a self-care revelation, I’m ready to explain why embracing #TeamBodyScrub is the way to go.
The main difference between a body scrub and a body polish is the treatment. Here's the deets.
In essence, a body polish is a drink for your skin. It’s often mixed with other products to achieve the most optimal end results. Body polishes provide hydration and preps you for further skin treatments.
However, when you opt for a body scrub you’re targeting a deeper clean.
The goal of a body scrub is to remove dead skin cells. You’ll notice that they are much more abrasive and the texture helps to draw out impurities and smooth out dry and rough skin. So if you've got flakey elbows, knees, or heels, this is your go-to option.
When using Pure Sol's best body exfoliator scrub, the turmeric paired with Atlantic salt and shea butter ingredients act as agent to purify and brighten your skin. These ingredients have been known to have some of the highest levels of antioxidants.
Some other major benefits:
- Great for use when trying to remove a tan
- Decreases UV damage
- Combats breakouts and acne
It’s recommended that you exfoliate your body 1 to 2 times a week. This is important to note because you should be taking into consideration of your skin type.
So in other words, if you have sensitive skin then the number of times per week should be repeated with caution.
Now that we are full swing into Spring and Summer is creeping just around the corner, honing in on the best body exfoliator scrub will be a key in nurturing a fresh glow. Hand-in-hand with your Konjac sponge, you're almost at the finish line for nailing down a glowing skincare routine.
