A scrub is the best way to remove dead skin cells at home, thus preparing it for further care. After the procedure, moisturizing and nourishing creams will work much more effectively, penetrating deep into the epidermis. On sale there are a lot of scrubs based on sugar, salt, polymer granules and more. You can choose the right one for yourself if you know which parameters to pay attention to.

Our experts have prepared a rating of the best scrubs based on the analysis of user reviews, as well as the assessment of experts and dermatologists. Here are 18 scrubs from a variety of categories, among which there is sure to be the best option for every occasion.

What to look for when choosing a scrub

  1. Skin type. It's important to understand what kind of skin you have. For oily, strong abrasives are preferable, and for dry, especially sensitive ones, soft ones that do not damage or cause irritation.

  2. What it is purchased for. Scrubs are divided according to purpose. Some are for the face, others for the body, as well as the arms and legs. All of them differ in the formula and, of course, in abrasive substances. What is included in the foot scrub is not suitable for the face as it uses coarse abrasives that can damage delicate skin.

  3. Individual reaction. If the skin is delicate, then sea salt products should be avoided. If you are prone to allergies, you should abandon scrubs that contain essential oils.

  4. Price category. Scrubs produced by luxury brands often include innovative formulas. In the composition of such products, there are plant peptides, extracts from algae, cell complexes and valuable oils. Budgetary ones have simpler formulations, where there are many synthetic substitutes. But even cheap scrubs do a great job at their core functions.

  5. Natural formulations. For organic lovers, there are scrubs made on the basis of natural abrasives, for example, grated nuts, ground coffee, and so on. It is worth remembering that such products have a short shelf life, so they should be bought in small quantities.
