Similar to facial scrubs, body scrubs should be a part of skin care routine. Not only do they slough off dead skin cells, they increase circulation and leave the skin smooth and moisturized.
They are used to prevent ingrown hairs before they happen by opening the pores and allowing hair follicles to freely develop new hairs above the skin's surface.
Homemade body scrubs have one advantage: they can be customized so they provide the best effects. You can change the fragrances by changing the essential oils you add to them.
