9 Benefits of Korean Exfoliation Scrubs

What is a K-Scrub, anyway? The Korean beauty industry has been keeping this under wraps... services are harder to export than products, after all. It's sometimes referred to as a "Body Polish" and is a staple practice in the land of glowing-skin, Korea.
Here are the Top 9 Benefits:
  1. Soft, supple skin that absorbs nutrients better, making subsequent treatments more effective
  2. Enhanced ability for your pores to sweat out waste
  3. Thorough removal of waste sweated out during the past week, month, or lifetime if it's your first scrub ever
  4. Fewer ingrown hairs for people who shave
  5. Shiny skin: say goodbye to ashiness!
  6. Lymphatic massage, which stimulates drainage and detoxification that is only possible through movement
  7. Longer lasting freshness after bathing, because no dead skin remains to decay when moisture is added
  8. It's easy to maintain at home on a weekly basis with a Korean Scrub Mitt (aka 'Italy Towel')
  9. Intimacy amongst family members; Koreans typically scrub one another and even strangers will offer to scrub you at the more traditional places
