Dry skin often looks dull because it tends to accumulate more dead cells on the surface of the skin than any other skin type. That is why regular exfoliation is very important for this type of skin. A perfect scrub for dry skin should be cream based so that it can replenish skin’s lost moisture. The defoliating particles should be gritty enough to perform skin exfoliation successfully. But the skin should not be scrubbed vigorously else it may develop minuscule cuts all over. Today I have come up with a compilation of 15 top-rated scrubs that are available in India. Let’s move on to know more.
1. Lotus Herbals Apriscrub Fresh Apricot Scrub

This one is my absolute favourite because it makes my face glow like no other exfoliator. This budget friendly scrub contains apricot as the scrubbing agent that clears off dead cells nicely and the cream base moisturises the skin quite well.
2. St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

Many beauties swear by this apricot scrub from St. Ives. This paraben-free and sulphate-free formula contains the goodness of walnut, corn kernel meal and apricot extract. Another nice fact is that it is non-comedogenic. So, it won’t be clogging your pores.
