What are the benefits of a body scrub?
Body scrubs remove dead skin cells, resulting in radiant, smooth skin. And all skin types can benefit from using a body scrub with rich emollients and gentle exfoliating ingredients, as the emollients help provide deep hydration while the exfoliants help gently buff away dryness. Origins' Ginger Body Scrub™ Smoothing Body Buffer is formulated with a blend of Dead Sea Salts and Macadamia and Almond oils to help smooth away rough patches while moisturizing the skin.
How often should you use a body scrub?
Generally, it's best to use a body scrub to exfoliate the skin once or twice a week. For those with sensitive skin, a once-weekly routine with a gentle exfoliant is recommended. Many people use body scrubs up to three times a week during the summer months, but it's important to maintain a routine year-round.
Body scrubs help remove impurities from the skin, and the ingredients work to slough away dead skin cells. Using a body scrub on a regular basis helps boost natural skin cell turnover, resulting in smooth, soft, and refreshed skin. Those with extremely dry skin should use a body scrub that contains moisturizing ingredients and follow up with a moisturizing cream (we recommend Ginger Souffle™ Whipped Body Cream) or body oil.
Can you use body wash on your face?
Whether or not to use body wash on your face depends on several factors, including overall skin sensitivity. Some body washes state directly on the packaging that they should not be used on the face, double check when in doubt.
