Scrub vs Soap

Ever since I was a child I was taught that taking a bath meant using soap and water to get clean. In fact many people believe this to be part of the normal bathing regiment, when in fact it might be doing more harm to their skin than good. If you are suffering from dry unhealthy skin It may be a good idea to take a look at what you are using in the shower and find an alternative to the typical store isle soap.

One of the best ways to get healthy, radiant, hydrated skin is replacing your bathtub soap with a natural ingredient scrub. Scrubs are great at doing many things that soaps just can’t. Below we have listed the pros and cons of soaps and scrubs.

Soap

  • ·Great at removing germs due to its antibiotic properties.
  • ·Removes grease well.
  • ·Tends to dry out the skin.
  • ·Does not exfoliate the skin by removing dead cells.
  • ·Tends to clog pores.


Scrub

  • ·Exfoliates by removing dead skin through granulated ingredients like natural sugar cane.
  • ·Can hydrate with natural oils like almond, sunflower and Jojoba.
  • ·Repairs skin by using natural ingredients such as Holly Leaf extract.
  • ·Makes the skin soak in natural vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
  • ·Tends to be more oily on the skin and is not good for removing grease.
  • ·Not used as a topical antibiotic to remove germs.

Both soaps and scrubs have their pros and cons. If you are looking for healthy, hydrated looking skin a scrub is your best option in the shower. Soaps are great for getting rid of germs and grease but tend to hurt more then help when it comes to skin health. If you are looking to get away from that pore clogging, dehydrating bath soap try out an all-natural scrub. It may be just the thing you are looking for. See all-natural scrubs
