Salt or Sugar? Which is the better abrasive? How frequently can I exfoliate?
We have been asked these questions a lot lately. To be honest, there isn't a right or wrong answer. It comes down to personal preference. Today we will look at both substances to help you determine which is the best personal choice for you and your skin.
Dead Sea Salt
Nutrient rich and a fairly fine particle, this salt is incorporated into all of our scrubs. This salt has been known to withdraw toxins from the body as well as soothe various skin ailments.
No matter which scrub you choose, ours will leave your skin extremely moisturized. I have heard from customers and can say from personal experience that I do not need a moisturizer after showering with a scrub. The oil will leave your skin hydrated, looking plump and refreshed.
Caution: Please be careful upon exiting your tub or shower as it might be slightly slippery from the moisturizing oils. We also like to include bits of whatever herb or fruit we are putting into the scrub so remember to wash the debris down the drain.
When/How much to Exfoliate?
Since summer has begun, I have found that in the warmer weather my skin benefits from scrubbing every other day. We usually recommend two times a week but in warmer weather your skin will stay glowing and hydrated if you do it more frequently. In the colder weather, since my skin tends to be dryer, I stick to the recommended times and scrub 2-3 times a week.
