Body Scrubs are skin care treatments whose primary function is to remove dead skin cells through exfoliation as well as cleanse the skin and increase the body's blood circulation. Sometimes body scrubs are referred to as a full body exfoliation, body glossing or body polishing. The exfoliating component needs to be abrasive enough to achieve this but not too strong so as not to damage healthy skin.

What are the benefits of a Body Scrub
If you're not using a body scrub then you're missing out on a number of benefits that other skin care products don't provide.
1 - Makes Skin Look Fresh and Rejuvenated - Essentially the benefits of using a body scrub are the removal of dead skin cells from the body and impurities, leaving you feeling fresh and your skin looking rejuvenated and revitalised.
2 - Makes Skin Look More Youthful - Exfoliating dead skin cells tends to remove the dull and lacklustre appearance of the skin. Humans shed skin cells daily (anywhere from 11,000-23,000 skin cells an hour) and it usually takes about 27 to 30 days before new skin cells reach the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum). Using a body scrub regularly will help make your skin look more vibrant and youthful.
3 - Moisturising Benefits - Benefits of body scrubs through the removal of dead skin cells as a result of exfoliation with a mild body scrub enhances and extends moisturising as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturiser into the healthy skin. Ideally, the best body scrub is one that not only acts as a gentle exfoliant but moisturises at the same time! All of the Elegant Image's Body Scrubs do both.
4 - Improved Self - Tanning - More and more people are using self-tanners and spray on tanning rather than increase their risk of skin cancer through exposure to the damaging effects of too much UV light. The important thing to know here is that to achieve a long-lasting realistic tan is to exfoliate the area to be tanned first. If you don't remove all the dead skin cells, you run the risk of ending up with a blotchy look as the tanning solutions will darken in the areas where dead skin cells accumulate (such as the elbows and knees). If you want that perfect natural looking tan a body scrub before the tanning application is essential.
