Just like we take care of our face, it is very important that we take care of our hands and legs too- the hands especially because they are always exposed to everyone. Therefore taking special care of the hands is extremely important. A clean and well maintained hand speaks a thousand words about you, so you have to take some time out for your hands too. Although there are hundreds of scrubs available in the market, it’s not feasible for everyone to buy them- firstly because it’s expensive and secondly the presence of chemicals in most of the scrubs tends to put off most of the women.

In winter it is very important to make sure your hands does not remain dry as the climate itself sucks out all the moisture from the skin.

Scrubs as per the skin types:

Different skin types require different types of scrubs. Here we are concentrating on scrubs especially for oily and dry skin types. Oily skin particularly requires exfoliation because oily skin is prone to different types of skin eruptions which make it dark and ugly. Dry skin on the other hand is deprived of natural oil that is secreted by the skin. This makes the skin look dry and aged. So it is wise that you select your scrubs as per your skin type.
