Learn How to use a Body Scrub for Maximum Benefits

Updated: Oct 5, 2023

Body scrubs are a luxurious and beneficial addition to any skincare routine. The scrubs that we use not only exfoliate your skin but also leave it feeling soft, smooth, and rejuvenated. If you've ever wondered how to use a body scrub effectively, you're in the right place! In this blog post, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of using a Zeeta Body scrub to achieve radiant and healthy skin.


Step 1: Choose the Right Body Scrub Before you begin, it's essential to select the right body scrub for your skin type and preferences. Body scrubs come in various formulations, including sugar, salt, coffee, and more. Each type has unique benefits.

For instance, sugar scrubs are gentle and hydrating, while salt scrubs are more abrasive and ideal for rough patches of skin or if you appreciate the additional healing benefits of salt. Natural body care provide long-term benefits. All of the products we sell incorporate essential oils, which not only offer a pleasing fragrance but also provide aromatherapeutic benefits. Aromatherapy can have a positive impact on your mood, reducing stress and promoting relaxation—a crucial aspect of overall well-being. Natural body care products work with your body's natural processes to improve skin health and appearance, leading to a healthier you - inside and out. Here's all of the different scrubs that we have to offer, here>>>.


Step 2: Gather Your Supplies To use a body scrub effectively, you'll need a few basic supplies:

  • Your chosen body scrub

  • A bathtub or shower

  • Clean towel

Step 3: Preparing Your Skin I like to choose between two different options here. You can either

  1. Start by wetting your skin thoroughly in the bath or shower. The warm water can help to open up pores and softening the skin, making it easier for the scrub to exfoliate effectively. You can also soak in the bathtub for a few minutes prior to scrubbing, if you prefer. Starting with wet skin will result in a softer scrub.

  2. Scrub your skin while it's dry, similar to dry brushing techniques. The difference you will notice when using this technique vs. a dry brush is that the oils in your ZB Scrub will provide some moisture, so it will be slightly less aggressive than using a dry brush technique to exfoliate.

Step 4: Apply the Body Scrub Take a generous amount of your chosen body scrub and apply it to your skin in circular motions. You can choose to start from your feet and work your way up to your neck, or begin at the top of your body and work your way down to your feet. Be sure to pay extra attention to rough areas like elbows, knees, and heels. Absolutely scrub your arms, chest, and back if you can reach it.


Step 5: Gentle Exfoliation While applying the scrub, use gentle pressure to avoid damaging your skin. Be especially careful around sensitive skin areas, like face, chest and neck. You can use an exfoliating glove or a soft bath brush to assist with the scrubbing process, but that's not really necessary with Zeeta Body scrubs. Remember that less is often more when it comes to pressure, avoid over-scrubbing if you notice that it irritates your skin.

Step 6: Rinse Thoroughly After scrubbing all areas of your body, rinse off the scrub with warm water. Ensure that none of the scrub solids, salt or sugar, remains on your skin. The oils in our body and face scrubs will leave a light layer of hydration to your skin, continue to massage the oil into your damp skin after the solids are washed away. You should notice an immediate difference in the texture and appearance of your skin – it should feel smoother and look more radiant.


Step 7: Pat Dry Gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Avoid rubbing vigorously, as your skin may be more sensitive after exfoliation.


Step 8: Moisturize, if needed Lock in the benefits of your body scrub by applying a nourishing moisturizer, like a body oil immediately after drying off. Since the Zeeta Body scrubs contain hydrating oils, it's unusual to need this additional step, but do what makes your skin hydrated and happy. Here's a list of all our aromatherapy body oils to add extra moisture to your skin and an added mood boost to your day. Shop Body Oils Here>>>.


Step 9: Frequency We get asked 'How often should I use my body/ face scrub? Using a body scrub 1-3 times a week is typically sufficient for most skin types. Over-exfoliating can lead to skin irritation, so be mindful not to use a body scrub too frequently.


There is it! Incorporating a body scrub into your skincare routine is a simple and effective way to achieve soft, smooth, and radiant skin. By following these steps and choosing the right product for your skin type, you can enjoy the many benefits of body scrubs and make them a luxurious part of your self-care routine. So go ahead, treat yourself to a spa-like experience in the comfort of your own bathroom, and let your skin glow with newfound vitality!



Keep it real, Christine
