Body Scrubs – the Way to have Smooth Skin

Sunday, 19 December 2010

Body ScrubsCream has become one of the major cosmetic products since the time when three Deutsch persons, the entrepreneur Oskar Troplowitz, the chemist Isaac Lifschtz and the dermatologist Paul Unna discovered the active substance extracted from lanoline. Some time later in about ten years ago, the scrubs for body were invented when the abrasives were added to the components. And now we are sure that scrub is the perfect product to make the skin beautiful and smooth without ant labor- and time-consuming attempt.

Some time back

The historians cannot know the precise date for the date, place and the name of the person who first used the abrasive material for shower procedure. It is supposed that the larger particles of ash or clay were accidentally used when taking a shower and the perfect effect of these substances on the skin was first then noticed. Somehow or other the first people who sued the procedure of using ash and clay in washing products were ancient Egyptians.

They invented the way to clean the skin with fine particles of pumice and sand. And Cleopatra who is famous for her beauty and ideally perfect skin had this remedy to keep her young and attractive. Elder women should remember the recipe of the scrub inherited from their grandmas when they cleansed their faces with semolina.

Scrub from the XXI century

The components of any scrub are mostly the same and today it comes as the exfoliatingcream with abrasives. The abrasives used for scrubbing are the natural components as the crushed nut shell, seashell, sea salt, grinded coffee, semolina, coral crumbs and others. The scrub has the effect when the skin is cleansed from the dead cells of the superficial epidermis mechanically by rubbing ad scrubbing.

Scrubs are different from the zone to be applied and thus, the size and quantity of particles in cream vary, either.

  • Facial scrubs contain the tender and subtle particles of smaller size.
  • Scrubs for hands have larger and angular particles.
  • The largest and highest amount of particles comes in scrubs for legs and feet.
  • Body scrubs have round to spherical synthetic components that tender exfoliate the skin.
  • Apart from exfoliating components, scrubs have the moisturizing agents and vitamins that nourish and soften the cleansed skin.

Home-made scrubs

Coffee scrub. The coffee of middle grinding is required to make the coffee scrub. When you take a shower and clean your body from the superficial dust and fat, soap the body again using shower gel or any soap, take some grinded coffee and rub into the skin. The intensity and speed of motions can be varied by your emotions and feelings.

Semolina scrub. This scrub is mainly done for the facial skin or sensitive skin on other zones. The scrubbing procedure is the same as above. There is a detail, though. The semolina absorbs water quickly and thus, you’d better treat your body in smaller size areas.

The way to use scrub properly

The technique is simple and one-stage. Apply some scrub in thin layer onto the clean skin. Then rub your skin all over the body to slight redness with your hands or a bath sponge. Then rinse your body. Another detail to be considered is that massaging should be done towards the extremities. So, when you massage your leg, massage it from the feet to thigh, when the hand is treated – it should be done from the wrist to shoulder.

Pros and cons of scrubs

Positive effect of scrubs includes:

  • The effect of rejuvenation;
  • The ability to find the product by the skin type;
  • Affordable price;
  • Easy application;
  • Immediate effect.

Negative effect includes:

  • Scrub should be applied carefully to avoid damaging the skin;
  • Sum body scrubs contain fruit acids (АНА) of higher activity. They should not be used as facial scrubs since the risk of skin damaging with chemicals is too high;
  • Scrub should be used once a week, not often. And women with sensitive skin are recommended to use scrubs once a fortnight.

You’d better use the scrubs in the transparent tube when you can see the components. The most expensive scrubs are made based on natural minerals of the Dead Sea, with laminar particles as the exfoliating agent.

As any ordinary people, celebrities do some steps to look more attractive. So, the Hollywood actress Halle Berry prefers using the chocolate scrub for cleansing her body. And the result is seen to anyone.
