Summers can be pretty harsh and protecting your skin then becomes the number one priority during this season. No matter how many skin-products you apply to shield your face, summer brings plenty of challenges like- dullness of skin caused by the dust particles blocking the pores, or the heavy pollution that steals the glow away from the face. Well, to fight the perpetual tan and to regain the glow, experts often advise to exfoliate the skin to remove the dead cells. After a body scrub, the skin absorbs the moisturizer better, as it removes the dead cells and unclogs the pores giving you a smooth and supple skin.
It is important to choose a right body scrub that suits your skin. And to make this easy for you, we have brought you 5 homemade body scrubs that caters to almost all skin types and needs.
