Salt vs. Sugar Scrub...Which One Should You Chose?
There really IS a difference and it's important to understand exactly what these key differences are. This allows for you to decide which one of right for your and which scrub is best, depending upon several factors like skin type and the skin issues you want to improve. Salt scrubs for example, tend to be made with Dead Sea salt which is indeed as it appears- extracted from the Dead Sea.
What's particularly beneficial with Dead Sea salt is that it's mineral-rich and has been shown to reduce wrinkle depth by up to 40%, in addition to reducing inflammation and improving moisture retention. Combined with a scrub and this awesome salt will leave your skin with an ultimate soft & supple feel that's smooth & glowing! These are highly recommended for those with super rough or dry skin and it's also perfect for those with difficult-to-resolve skin issues such as eczema. If you have ever ended up with an allergic reaction, a salt scrub is an excellent choice.
As for sugar scrubs, they are usually composed of a quality granular sugar, Shea butter, & natural oils like Argan or Jojoba and are great natural gentle exfoliators. If you have sensitive areas you want to buff gently and leave soft, smooth, and glowing then this is the way to go. Sugar scrubs are okay for almost any skin type- even those with super sensitive skin. They also tend to dissolve at a quicker rate, which is one of the reasons for their less-abrasive results.
