A de-tan scrub, also known as a suntan removal scrub, is a skincare product that is specifically designed to remove suntan from the skin. Suntan occurs when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, which causes an increase in the production of the pigment melanin in the skin. This results in a darker and uneven skin tone.
De-tan scrubs work by exfoliating the top layer of the skin, which helps to remove the dead skin cells that have been darkened by the sun. Exfoliation helps reveal the fresh skin underneath, and restores the natural glow of the skin, and makes it even toned. The exfoliating particles in a de-tan scrub can be made from natural ingredients such as sugar, sea salt, or walnut granules, ground coffee, or they can be synthetic such as microbeads. However natural ingredients are the best for your skin.
When using a de-tan scrub, it is important to apply it to damp skin and massage it in gentle, circular motions. This helps to loosen and remove the dead skin cells, while also stimulating blood flow to the skin. The scrub should be left on the skin for a few minutes to allow the ingredients to penetrate and work their magic, before being rinsed off with lukewarm water. It is recommended to use the scrub once or twice a week, depending on the skin type and the severity of the suntan.
De-tan scrubs also contain other ingredients that can help to remove suntan. Some scrubs contain natural ingredients like lemon, orange, or clove extracts, which are known to have natural bleaching properties. These ingredients can help to lighten the skin, while also providing antioxidants to protect the skin from further damage. Other scrubs contain ingredients like aloe vera, which can help to soothe and moisturize the skin, while also helping to reduce inflammation and redness.
How to choose the best de-tan scrub
There are many de-tan scrubs available in the market. However, many of them contain synthetic ingredients and chemicals that can harm your skin. It’s best to use a scrub that is made with skin-friendly ingredients. Choose a scrub that is paraben and silicone free.
Ideally, you should select a scrub that is made of natural ingredient that helps to remove tan. For example, clove is highly effective in removing suntan from the skin. That is why Dr.Rashel has specially designed a De-tan Scrub using 100% natural clove extracts. This scrub is safe to use and can be used by men & women.
