When choosing the best mango body scrub, the first thing to assess is your skin type. If you have oily skin, you may want to choose a more robust scrub that can really cleanse the skin and clear excess oil from the pores. If you have sensitive skin, it is best to go with a scrub that is milder and will slough away dead skin cells without irritating your skin. Finally, if you have dry skin, you will want to choose a mango body scrub that will help to hydrate your skin as well as exfoliate it. This means that you might want to choose a scrub that is made with jojoba oil, olive oil, or Vitamin E.

Not all mango body scrub options are the same. One of the key differences between these products is the kind of exfoliator that is used in the product. Two common exfoliators are sugar and salt. If you have sensitive skin, or plan to use the scrub on an area that you regularly shave, then you might want to stay away from scrubs that are made with salt. This is because the salt might create an uncomfortable stinging sensation. Mango body scrubs made with sugar will not create this sort of discomfort.

If you plan on primarily using the scrub on your feet, then you will want to choose a scrub with a strong exfoliant. This is because callouses that build up on the feet and the dead skin on the feet can be difficult to remove. Furthermore, scrubs that are used on the feet should also have moisturizing properties. As there are no oil glands in the feet, the skin there needs to be hydrated after being exfoliated. Keeping the skin hydrated will keep it from flaking and even cracking in the future.

One of the best ways to choose a mango body scrub is to shop for different options at stores that have testers available for customers. In fact, many of these stores have sinks on-site so that you can try the scrub on your hands. If the scrub does a good job of exfoliating the skin on your hands and leaving them feeling soft and moisturized, then it will probably also do a good job on the rest of your body. Testing the scrubs will also allow you to choose a scrub that has a scent that you enjoy.
