Scrubs are good for sloughing away dead cell buildup and product gunk to reveal softer, smoother, and brighter skin. Be careful not to scrub *too* hard, though, as some areas of our body are very thin and sensitive. Always remember: Friction causes darkening.
Here's a list of scrubs you might want to try on various body parts prone to discoloration: elbows, knees, singit, and kilikili!
