How do you use body scrub? Maybe it sounds so obvious that you can’t help but think it’s a question that violates that standard teacher axiom about how there are no stupid questions.
You use body scrub by scrubbing it on your body, you fool. Well, yeah, but there’s a little more to it than that, especially if you want to maximize the scrub — and who doesn’t want to maximize the scrub?
So hold off on your judgment, and bear with us while we dip into the finer points of body scrub and exfoliation for men. You just might learn something.Stay Fresh with Our Charcoal Body Scrub
Before we get into the process, let’s take a moment to analyze the whys and whats.
The Benefits of Full-Body Exfoliation
You likely know that using the proper face scrub can keep acne off your mug. It works by getting in there and ridding your pores of dead skin cells and grime. But dead skin cells and general nastiness are a full-body problem. That’s why exfoliating is a full-body solution. So if you’re one of the many guys who knows a little something about chest and back acne, go ahead and exfoliate, my man.
Exfoliating a couple of times per week also keeps your skin healthy and soft. On top of that, it helps moisturizers absorb into your skin. That’s added softness.
The Right Tools
Not all body scrubs are created equal. But because we aren’t monsters, we won’t mess around trash talking inferior scrubs. We’ll just point you toward our charcoal body scrub and leave it at that. It exfoliates with a combo of walnut shells and bamboo stems, a duo that comes equipped with a cast of jojoba esters, pineapple and papaya, which serve to break down pore-clogging oils.
So what do you scrub with? Well, there’s a good chance whatever you’re cleaning with is defeating the purpose. More on that in a second. First, what you should use: Our silicone body scrubber, a long-haul shower mate that lathers like a dream.Exfoliate with Our Silicone Body Scrubber
Unlike loofahs and washcloths, which collect dead skin cells and bacteria in their fibers during their short lifespans, our 100 percent silicone scrubber lasts a year and stays clean while it keeps you clean. So unlike that nasty bacteria repository you probably have dangling in your shower, our scrubber offers a deep, hygienic clean each and every time. We’re talking 12 months of fresh scrubbing.

It’s certainly true that coming equipped with the right tools is more than half that battle. While we’ve clued you in to the right scrub and scrubber, you should also clean with the right body wash beforehand. This helps you get the most of the process by giving your scrub a clean body to work with.
So now that you’re all spick-and-span in that warm shower, it’s time to exfoliate. Simply apply some charcoal body scrub to your silicone scrubber and get after it. Work in gentle, circular motions, only spending about 10 seconds on each segment of your body. It doesn’t take long for the tools to get the job done, and it doesn’t take added force to eliminate the dead skin cells.
One important thing to note: This process is going to feel pretty spectacular. You’ll likely have the urge to do it day after day. If that’s the case, RESIST THE URGE. You should only exfoliate two or three times per week. If you overdo it, your skin will almost certainly become irritated. And you don’t want to ruin a good thing.
