Blog 51: Does your skin really need a scrub? Guide to choose the right scrub
Posted on March 07 2018
Human skin has 5 layers. New skin cells are produced at the innermost layer, known as the basal layer (stratum germinativum). Once produced, the new skin cells continue moving upwards through the skin layers, matures & dies. By the time they reach the outermost layer, the stratum corneum (horny layer) they are all dead. Scrubbing helps in removing these dead cells & thus invigorates the process of new cell production. Benefits of scrubbing includes,
- Removes dead skin cells
- Clears deep-seated dirt
- Promotes clear complexion
- Improves cell regeneration rate
- Prevents pimple & acne
- Improves penetration of topically applied products
The easily available scrubs have made the task of exfoliation least complicated, but you need to be cautious about picking the right product to get the best results.
Scrub for Dry Skin
When it comes to choosing scrub for the dry skin keep the following in mind,
- Should be free from soap

- Must contain natural skin moisturizing agents (e.g. Aloe Vera, rose water, oatmeal)
