How Do Body Scrubs Help Skin?

Body scrubs are incredibly effective when it comes to improving the look and feel of your skin. 

Combining a physical exfoliant together with nourishing oils has a range of benefits, helping to:

  • Remove dead cells from the surface of the skin
  • Promote circulation and new skin cell turnover
  • Hydrate and soften dry skin
  • Prevent ingrown hairs
  • Smooth razor bumps
  • Clear impurities and congestion
  • And leave your skin feeling refreshed and revitalised!

As a general rule, you’ll want to start by using a body scrub once a week, before gradually building this up to 3-4 times a week.

How to Make Your Own Natural Body Scrubs

To create your own body scrub, you only need two elements: a liquid base (like jojoba, almond or coconut oil) paired with exfoliating granules (such as Himalayan salt or sugar). It’s important to use only finely ground salt, rather than coarse salt, to ensure the scrub is gentle enough for your skin.

Essential oils are a great addition to body scrub recipes as they provide added aromatherapy benefits. Soothing oils like lavender or chamomile are perfect for a calming body scrub before bed, while uplifting oils like lemon or grapefruit will get you motivated in the mornings!

A basic body scrub recipe looks something like this:

  • 1-2 cups physical exfoliant 
  • ½ cup of your chosen base oil
  • 10-20 drops essential oils
