Although there are many different products on the market these days, know that different scrubs have many uses based on their ingredients. To get the full beauty breakdown on this popular beauty topic, we’ve consulted Dr. Marina Peredo, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, to tell us when and where to use either sugar or salt scrubs.
To find out whether you should use a salt or sugar scrub, it’s important to check the size of the scrub granules to see how they will affect your skin. “The difference between salt and sugar scrubs is the size of the granules. The smaller the granules, the gentler they are on the skin. Generally, sugar particles are smaller, making them less abrasive on the skin,” says Dr. Marina Peredo. If you find your skin to be a bit more on the sensitive side, then the sugar route is probably safest for your skin.
For a gentle yet effective product, the Glo Minerals Sugar Body Polish uses a natural blend of cane sugar and shea butter to leave your skin smooth and refreshed. Also, proven to ward off eczema, Peredo finds that sugar scrubs are best used for those with any existing skin conditions including rosacea, acne and eczema.
Designed for extra sensitive skin, the LUSH Sugar Scrub always makes a great go-to, as its preservative-free formula softly buffs away dead skin without irritation. Just simply use on all parts of your body next time you shower for brighter and smoother skin.
However, if you are more acne-prone, trying a salt scrub may make all the difference. “Salt scrubs can also be beneficial for harsh acne breakouts as they help in absorbing oil and unclogging pores. Salt has many healing and antiseptic properties. When applied to the skin, salt helps to kill bacteria and reduce inflammation,” Peredo states.
For a salt-based scrub that helps perfect your complexion, look to the MSC Skincare Tangerine And Apple Exfoliating Salt Scrub to tone and balance the skin with natural collagen and elastin-boosting ingredients. Apply to your face or body, and scrub away for truly gorgeous skin.
Suffering from extremely dry skin? For all those tough areas, Peredo recommends a heavy-duty salt scrub to get the job done right. “Salt scrubs are much coarser in texture and are best used on thick, rough patches of skin like callused elbows, knees and feet,” Peredo adds.
For some powerful salt-scrubbing action, the Borghese Sali Esfoliante Salt Scrub uses salt minerals, olive and grapeseed oils to promote healthy cell-turnover and all-over exfoliation.
