Scrubbing is one beauty routine that often goes unappreciated - many of us do not even know why it is necessary. However, when we get a facial, foot spa or a nail spa done at an expensive salon, we can actually feel the skin glowing.

It is as if our skin died and was reborn again. Well, what do we know, it really was reborn! In fact, scrubbing is very essential for dry skin in winters.

Homemade Scrubs For Dry Skin In Winter

So, let us figure out what scrubbing really is and how it helps bring out the natural glow of the skin. Scrubbing or exfoliation is the process of using a mechanical, chemical or organic scrubbing product to remove the topmost layer of the dead skin cells.

Scrubbing will make sure all the dead skin cells, which would otherwise clog pores and not allow the skin to breathe, are gotten rid of. Using a homemade scrub will cut down the cost of getting an expensive spa treatment done at a salon.
