|GOOD FOR: Dry Skin . Sensitive and Ultra Sensitive Skin . Mature Skin . Gentle Exfoliation with Deep Hydration . Skin Exposed to Harsh Environments or Cold Climates|
A good, effective natural body scrub fix for dry, sensitive or mature skin should be creamy and gently exfoliate, removing dry, dead skin cells without too much stress to your skin. Natural exfoliating agents like salt and sugar are super great for dry skin due to the small size and quality of the grains. These two dry skin body rubs have been tested by us at DEWFACE for gentleness AND effectiveness.
Pumpkin — Not just for Halloween anymore
One of the best dry and sensitive skin body scrubs we have tried is Oskia Skincare’s Renaissance Body Scrub Vitamin and Enzyme Exfoliator. This luxurious mixture uses fermented pumpkin enzymes, Vitamin E, MSM, Starflower Oil and Pink Himalayan Salt crystals to alleviate dryness and create a feeling of smooth, silky DEWFACE skin.
Pumpkin is one of our favorite fruits to eat around holiday time (yes, it’s a fruit, not a vegetable, because it’s the product of the seed-bearing part of flowering plants), but it’s also a powerful antioxidant designed to help reverse UV damage and improve skin texture. Pumpkin also aids in the production of collagen, which improves your skin’s elasticity and tone. The fermented pumpkin enzymes in the Renaissance Body Scrub Vitamin and Enzyme Exfoliator create a gentle chemical exfoliation that work together in sync with the exfoliating salt crystals. Vitamin E helps restore your dry skin and its natural defenses against the environment and free radical damage, and gamma-linolenic acid (Omega 6) rich Starflower Oil nourishes and firms. This scrub also contains MSM (the chemical compound Methylsulfonylmethane famous for reducing inflammation) and Pink Himalayan Salt (rich in 84 trace minerals) work to buff your way to DEWFACE skin.
A sweet treat for your skin: Shea and Sugar
Another of our testers has long praised using Shea Butter for solving dry skin problems on her elbows and hands. (Shea Butter is the fat that has been extracted from the nut of the African shea tree, known for its super-beneficial and very high concentration of vitamins and fatty acids.)
Tree Hut has a huge array of different and inexpensive, quality sugar AND salt scrub products with exotic and innovative dry skin scrub ingredients like Charcoal and Black Sugar, Amazon Pequi, Hawaiian Kukui, and Pomegranate Acai, as well as tried-and-true scrub ingredient favorites, like Almond and Honey and Brown Sugar. Unlike many other companies claim, they use 100% Pure Shea. At DEWFACE, our favorite scrub is Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub Vitamin C. In addition to famed skin Vitamin C, the scrub includes Evening Primrose, Safflower Seed, Sweet Almond, Avocado, and Orange natural oils.

SCRUB FOLLOW UP: After your dry skin scrub
When you use a body scrub, you are exposing new skin but at the same time your skin loses some of its natural oils. Follow up your scrub session with a good quality natural moisturizer. Tree Hut has a 100% pure Shea Body Butter moisturizer you can use as a follow up to any scrub. If unscented lotions are a must for you (or the people around you), check out our list of best unscented natural moisturizers.
