What is Body Scrubbing?
Body scrubbing involves the use of a loofah or other exfoliating tools to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your body. The process is also known as dry brushing, and it's been used for centuries to treat various ailments, including:
- Improving skin texture and tone
- Reducing inflammation
- Relaxing muscles
DIY Body Scrub Recipe
If you're looking to make your own body scrub, here's a simple recipe:
- 1 cup sugar (white or brown)
- 1/2 cup olive oil or coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Using a Body Scrub Massage
The benefits of body scrubbing include:
- A deeper cleanse. The exfoliating action of the scrub removes dead skin cells and opens up pores, allowing for deeper cleansing.
- A smoother texture. The scrub's abrasive particles help smooth rough areas like knees and elbows, leaving you with soft, even-toned skin that glows in the light!
- An improvement in circulation. When used regularly (about once a week), body scrubs can improve blood flow throughout your entire body by increasing circulation to those hard-to-reach places like between fingers or toes where dirt tends to accumulate over time due to lack of movement while sleeping at night; this leads us into our next point...

Tips for the Best Body Scrub Massage Experience
- Use only as much scrub as you need. The key to a successful body scrub massage is using the right amount of product. Too much sugar and salt can be irritating to your skin, so start with a small amount and add more if needed.
- Don't use any other products on top of your sugar scrub! This is important because it will make it difficult for your skin to absorb the nutrients from the scrub and could lead to irritation or redness if there's too much friction between layers of lotion or oil (which can also clog pores).
- Moisturize afterwards! After rinsing off all traces of sugary goodness from your body, pat dry with a towel before applying moisturizer--this helps lock in moisture while preventing dryness caused by excess exfoliation.
DIY Body Scrub Ideas
- Combine different ingredients. You can use any combination of natural ingredients to make your own body scrub. For example, you can combine brown sugar and coconut oil or honey and olive oil.
- Use an essential oil. If you want to add some fragrance to your homemade scrub, consider adding a few drops of an essential oil such as lavender or grapefruit to the mix.
- It's easy! Making your own body scrub is simple enough that even kids can do it--and they'll love helping out in the kitchen too!
DIY Body Scrub Benefits
Body scrubbing is a great way to pamper yourself. It is also beneficial because it helps exfoliate dead skin cells, which can lead to smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Body scrubs are also effective at removing dirt and oil from the surface of your body, which makes them ideal for preventing ingrown hairs or razor bumps.
The scrub-dub™ is an easy-to-use tool that makes it simple to create your own homemade body scrub using natural ingredients like sugar or salt!
DIY Body Scrub Tips
If you're a DIY enthusiast, then you can make your own body scrub at home. The first step is to choose the right kind of sugar. You don't want to use granulated white sugar because it's too rough on your skin. Instead, try brown sugar or turbinado (also known as raw) sugar if you have access to it--they are both gentler on the skin than white granulated varieties.
Next up: Don't use too much pressure when rubbing in your DIY mixture! When scrubbing with scrub-dub's dual action body scrubber, just lightly massage in circular motions instead of pressing down hard with force like some people might do when using store-bought products that contain microbeads (which are bad). Make sure not to leave any areas untouched either; this will ensure all parts get exfoliated properly and evenly over time so they're nice and smooth when done washing off all those dead cells away!
Finally...letting things sit for five minutes before rinsing off works wonders for getting rid of dirt without having any adverse effects on sensitive areas such as knees/elbows/feet etcetera."
