Sometimes applying lotion on the dry patches of your skin isn’t enough. It will moisturize your skin for the day but by the time you get home, your skin will start flaking again. In situations like this, an exfoliating body scrub will do the trick. Not only will it remove dead skin cells but it will also unclog your pores and leave it feeling soft and smooth. It’s important to note, however, that you shouldn’t exfoliate every day since it can dry out and irritate the skin. So incorporating it into your routine once or twice a week is a good place to start. If you have sensitive skin, you can go for a more gentle cream scrub. If you’re looking for something a bit more abrasive, try a sugar scrub. Check out some of the products below and pick one that best suits your skin’s needs.
