Using a body scrub or exfoliant regularly is essential to keep the skin smooth, glowing and revitalized. The exfoliating power of the scrub speeds up skin renewal, removing dead skin cells, stimulating the regeneration of new cells and preparing the skin to boost the efficacy of the subsequent treatments. The difference between a scrub and a body exfoliant is the size of the salt or sugar crystals present in the product. The crystals in a scrub are larger, for a more vigorous exfoliating action, while those in the body exfoliant are smaller, so it has a gentler effect. A body scrub can be used weekly, throughout the year, in every season, and skin will appear softer, smoother and more glowing right from the first application, ready for a moisturizing, firming or slimming cream to be applied.
