Is the skin on your body dry, or perhaps not as smooth or soft as it could be? Although you moisturize your face and hands, the skin on other parts of your body also needs attention. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much effort to get it looking clear and feeling great.
By exfoliating your skin, a back scrubber helps to leave it smoother, softer, and clearer. It can also help to eliminate acne and ingrown hairs. In addition, it can improve the appearance of stretch marks and scarring, and stimulate circulation.
Some benefits of using a back scrubber to exfoliate your skin
Exfoliating your skin with a back scrubber removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin smoother and softer. A back scrubber can also help to unclog pores on your back, preventing acne from developing.
Exfoliating your back with a scrubber can improve circulation, which promotes healthy skin. Using a back scrubber enhances the absorption of other skincare products that you use. Scrubbing your back is relaxing and therapeutic, and helps you de-stress and unwind.
How to use a back scrubber
Firstly, you should soften your skin with warm water for a few minutes in the bath or shower. Then soak your back scrubber, and use firm strokes with the rough side to exfoliate your skin. After this, you can use the soft side of your back scrubber with a shower gel to cleanse your skin.
Rinse the scrubber and leave it to dry naturally. Do not use your back scrubber on sensitive areas of your skin including open wounds, sunburn, new tattoos, or acne. Do not use it on your face, or just before shaving. Be firm but gentle and you should use your back scrubber once or twice per week. For those difficult-to-reach areas, you can try combining your back scrubber with an exfoliating glove.
For hydrated, or toned skin you should use body lotion within a few minutes of showering, while your pores are still open. It’s best to replace your scrubber every six months at the latest.
What skin types can use a back scrubber?
A back scrubber can be recommended for all skin types. It can be especially beneficial for oily skin, as it removes excess oil and unclogs pores. If you have dry skin, it helps to remove dead skin cells and allows moisturizers to penetrate deeply. However, if you have sensitive skin it’s important to not use a back scrubber too vigorously or too frequently as this may cause some irritation.
Can I use a back scrubber on tattoos?
Healed tattoos can benefit from the use of a back scrubber. A back scrubber can remove the dead skin cells that form on top of a tattoo and leave it looking dull or faded. So, using a back scrubber can help to maintain the vibrancy of tattoos.
When you get a new tattoo, you should wait for it to fully heal before using your back scrubber. Using a back scrubber too soon could delay the healing process because new tattoos are sensitive and prone to infection.
Are back scrubbers designed for men or women?
Both men and women benefit from using back scrubbers to improve the health and appearance of their skin. Back scrubbers are especially useful if you have long hair, as hair can trap sweat, and dead skin cells in the skin on your back. A back scrubber can remove this build-up and prevent acne and other skin complaints.
Should I use a body brush or a back scrubber?
A back scrubber may well be a better option because it will typically have a more textured surface than a body brush, so it will give you a more thorough exfoliation of your skin. Back scrubbers have been specifically designed for use on the back and other areas that can be difficult to reach comfortably with a brush.
Back scrubbers are recommended for use in the shower. This can soften the skin and make it easier to exfoliate. Back scrubbers are normally made from materials that are easier to clean than body brushes, which helps to prevent the growth of bacteria and microorganisms on them.
Why use a fabric back scrubber?
Fabric back scrubbers which have two handles can be easier to use as they allow for control and flexibility during use. Having two handles helps you to hold the scrubber at a variety of angles and with the right pressure to suit your needs.
So, you can scrub your back effectively without straining your arms or shoulders. Fabric back scrubbers are also made from soft material that is gentle on the skin and easy to clean. They can be used with your favorite shower gel to generate a rich lather to help exfoliate your skin and leave it feeling smooth and refreshed.
