Salt vs Sugar Scrub

Salt vs Sugar Scrub

Exfoliation is the removal of dry/dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is one of the most important aspects of your home skincare routine for face and body. Exfoliation not only helps many skin problems, it also increases blood circulation, which in turn helps you to achieve healthy and glowing skin.

How Often Should You Exfoliate?

We suggest exfoliating twice a week as part of a good home care regime – both the face and body. While it’s important to remove dead skin it’s also important not to strip away too many of your natural oils, so a good balance is essential.

I love a good body scrub. Usually after a body scrub I feel brand new, along with the dead skin cells disappearance. To cut down on spending, I make my own body scrubs and do them at home. One day I used salt instead of sugar and well I was not pleased.

The Importance of Exfoliating.

Firstly, exfoliating the skin is necessary.  It is the key to glowing skin. It gets rid of dull and dead skin cells and this helps you to absorb skin products better. By exfoliating you are giving yourself healthier and brighter looking skin.

The Difference Between Sugar Scrubs and Salt Scrubs

The main difference is the size of the granules.  Generally, sugar is smaller than salt, thus sugar is less abrasive on the skin and is used for body scrubs. Salt scrubs are generally used for tougher parts.


Best for: sensitive skin, freshly-shaved legs, can be used all over the body

• Sugar scrubs exfoliate whilst also moisturizing the skin.

Because it is gentle, you can use sugar scrubs more often. Daily if you like.

There aren’t as many nutrients in sugar scrubs.

Sugar is best for the Face

Natural Sugars are less drying on the skin.


Best for: elbows, knees, feet, calluses

•Salt scrubs make good muscle relaxants.

It can sting if scrubbing over cuts and bruises.  Salt scrubs can be drying to the skin, and you may need to re-hydrate pretty intensively after using a salt scrub.

Sea salt is usually used in making homemade scrubs, and it contains wonderful minerals that are great for your body.

Salt scrubs are wonderful for detoxifying your skin and helping to purify the skin as well as keep your pores clear

Salt scrubs can kill bacteria & reduces inflammation

The reason I decided to go with home made sugar scrubs is because I can keep a track of the ingredients. Scrubs bought in stores contain preservatives, and other ingredients that can be harmful to the skin. You can easily make a salt or sugar scrub with all natural ingredients at home. Sugar scrub has a short shelf life but I guarantee you will use it up in no time.
