Should I Use Homemade Sugar Scrub Or Homemade Salt Scrub?
Both sugar and salt scrub have exfoliating factors and both can provide the user with pleasing results. The question then becomes, which of these product options is best for you? There are some distinct differences between a homemade sugar scrub and a homemade salt scrub that should be kept in mind when deciding which of them you will be using to exfoliate your skin. If you fail to take these factors into consideration, you may end up with rough skin. It should however be noted that homemade sugar scrub is better than salt scrub for several reasons.
Sugar scrub is more soft and sticky than salt scrub. Since the homemade sugar scrub is sticky it remains attached to your skin while you are applying it, and also remains on the skin after application. These sticky properties give the oils that are used a better chance to take effect because they stay on the skin longer. Salt scrubs are not sticky and fall off when it is rubbed which can lead to waste.
Homemade sugar scrub is more suitable for anyone who is like me and has sensitive skin, as it is gentler and less harsh than salt scrub. Since homemade sugar scrub gets easily dissolved in warm water, it makes it less abrasive on the skin than a salt scrub. If you are like me and are looking for daily relief of certain skin conditions, homemade sugar scrub can and should be used every couple of days to help reduce or prevent symptom outbreaks.
Salt scrubs are not recommended for first time users, and can require a bit of expertise before using. Sugar scrub is ideal for first time users.
Therefore, it is advisable that if you are on the fence as to what type of scrub to use, I have to recommend that you strongly consider the use of a homemade sugar scrub for your skincare needs. Homemade sugar scrub will provide the exfoliating your skin requires, at the same time giving your skin that extra shine, and causing those you know to envy you.
