From your face to your shoulders to the middle of your back, a good scrub is the key to happy, smooth skin. Here are three things to know before buying a shower brush.
Unless you’re a professional yogi, chances are you can’t reach that little spot on your back between your shoulder blades in the shower. That’s where a long-handled scrubber comes in. There are lots of types to choose from, including exfoliating bristles, soft mesh, natural sponge and scratchy natural loofah.
Sweat can trap dirt and grime in your pores and in nooks and crannies where skin touches skin. That’s why giving your sweatiest spots—like the middle of your back along your bra line—a good scrub every day is a good idea.
If you’ve got skin irritation where your hair hits your chest, neck, or back, it could be caused by ingredients in your shampoo and conditioner running onto your skin. For this reason, it’s smart to scrub and rinse your back and chest after hair washing.
