Standing in the middle of a cosmetic supermarket but don’t know which body wash to buy? No, you cannot just pick up anything without bearing in mind your skin type. Every one of us have different skin types and the unguents we use must be permitted by our skin otherwise it can have adverse effects on the skin. Using a body wash for bathing is a great way to sooth and smoothen the skin and it can also have other benefits. Let us find out.

Body washes also have different formula to suit a skin type- shower gels, moisturizing body wash and exfoliating body wash. Shower gels are clear and brightly colored body washes and look similar to shampoos. They mostly contain water and a low proportion of detergent for gently cleansing the skin. These body washes have a high content of fragranced ingredients hence giving the user a wide variety of fragrances to choose from; they are best for post-workout wash. They are designed only to clean the skin and contain little conditioning to keep your skin hydrated for long. People having normal to oily skin types can use this kind of body wash without feeling skin sensitivity.

As the name suggests, a moisturizing body wash is designed to moisturize the skin with its high content of soyabean, sunflower, petroleum jelly, olive oil, Shea butter, etc. They look like body lotion but act like mild cleansers. They stick well to the skin even hours after the body wash is washed away, so you feel moisturized for long. These body washes are less drying than the gel formula but tend to be a little more expensive. You can even skip applying a body lotion if you bathe with a creamy, moisturizing body wash. They are great for normal to dry skin types and people looking for milder formulas.

The exfoliating body wash uses beads, sugar, salt, etc. to gently scrub the skin to get rid of dead cells and give you smooth skin. The best part about body wash is that they don’t deposit on your bathroom floor and give you are luxurious, creamy bath, unlike soap. Wake up to that beauty-holic in you and choose the best-suited body wash to adorn your bathroom and your skin. There is a body wash for every ‘body’ walking on this earth; one just has to have a skin and sensation for it.

Microdermabrasion is a distinctly modern procedure that proves there is a place for high tech thinking in the beauty world. This unique skin treatment was developed by an Italian doctor in the mid 1980s and has since caught on all over the world. Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing technique that has results similar to a chemical peel or a laser peel; but it is faster, less invasive, less dangerous, and less uncomfortable than these treatments and has very comparable results. Unlike a chemical or laser peel, a microdermabrasion technique doesn’t require any recovery time. It is possible to have a microdermabrasion in the afternoon and still hit the town that very night with fresh, smooth skin.


Microdermabrasion is no more invasive or time consuming than a massage or a manicure. This fast turnaround has made microdermabrasion a popular treatment.


Microdermabrasion is a technique that removes the fine outer layer of skin; revealing a fresh, young looking complexion, and causing the face to quickly regenerate new layers of smooth, flawless skin that can keep you looking great for weeks. Microdermabrasion can remove superficial scars and slight pits or dents in the facial surface, such as the minor scars sometimes caused by acne. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other fine lines, which is a boon to anyone looking for a way to make their face appear younger. A few half hour sessions of microdermabrasion can wipe away damage that has accumulated over a period of many years.


The equipment used in microdermabrasion can be intimidating the first time you undergo the procedure. In microdermabrasion a device sprays extremely fine crystals over the surface of the skin, then applies gentle circular pressure that works the granules against the face to loosen the outer layer of skin. After this is complete, light suction lifts the loosened layer of skin away. The entire procedure usually takes between half an hour and an hour, and is often performed by a plastic surgeon although many spas are beginning to offer this revolutionary treatment in addition to classic beauty standbys like facials.


Unfortunately, one downside to microdermabrasion in the eyes of many potential customers is the cost. A single session of this uniquely high tech procedure can cost between one hundred and two hundred dollars. However, there are plenty of regular microdermabrasion clients who feel that increasing beauty is worth any financial cost.
