Salt scrub or sugar scrub?

When you use a salt scrub, it is very important the type of salt you use. I recommend you to use sea salt. Table salt is not effective for the skin. Because sea salt is very granulated, you should use it only on the dry parts of your body. I personally do not use it on the face. Do not use sea salt scrub on the sensitive parts of your body.

Unlike the salt scrub, sugar scrub can be prepared both with table or unrefined, brown sugar. Because sugar is not so granulated, can be use both on dry and sensitive areas. So, you can use sugar scrub on your face. Brown sugar is more abrasive than table sugar, but still you can use it on your face.

Another difference is that sugar scrub can be use 2-3 times per week, while sea salt scrub can be used one time per week.[/expand]
