Body scrubs are a skincare product you must have lying in your vanity. What’s not to love about them anyway? They do a far better job at cleansing your skin than a regular soap bar and come with an interesting choice of ingredients. Having said that, aggressive scrubbing can cause redness, irritation and clogged pores. When selecting a body scrub, keep your skin type in mind. To help you make the right pick, ranging from mild to rough exfoliation experience, I’ve listed down 8 body scrubs keeping skin sensitivity in mind. Enjoy!
