Scrubbing may seem like a chore, it’s synonymous with cleaning after all, but nothing reveals fresher, more radiant skin than sloughing away dead skin cells with a great exfoliator.
Consider this, then, dear skin care enthusiast. Should you reach for a sugar based scrub? Or a salt-based one?
What’s the difference between sugar and salt scrubs?
The main difference between sugar particles and salt particles is the size of the exfoliating granule. Sugar scrubs have smaller granules than salt, and are best suited for sensitive skin. Salt scrubs are generally more abrasive because of their sharper edges and therefore do a better job at smoothing out the rough skin patches on the body.

You could potentially use a sugar based body scrub on the face as it’s more gentle. The size and diameter of these granules mean that any and all skin types can enjoy them.
