Default Salt scrub VS Sugar scrub - Which is better and why?

Basically title says it all. I did a quick google search, but found nothing claiming why one may be preferred over the other for certain skin tones.

I use sugar scrub because the sugar seems a lot softer. It suits well with my dry skin.

I think sugar is better, mainly cause the salt is very drying on the skin. However if you are to use it on the face I think baking soda is the best ^^ tiny ctistalls and kills bacretia and stuff

I've used both and didn't find a whole lot of difference. I think the sugar scrub was a little less abrasive. I like a more abrasive scrub on my hands, feet and legs.

I guess it's easy enough to make up your own, with some oil, and either salt or sugar -- or be bold and indecisive and use both salt and sugar. Maybe a bit of glycerin, too?

I actually find that I can't use baking soda as a scrub. It dries my skin almost immediately and really burns. I can't keep it on longer than one minute that is for sure! I use Shea butter after every scrub, so I know that I am moisturizing very well, yet I will still have flakies in the morning.

Oh yes; with baking soda I definitely need to use a light touch. Just a bit mixed into the OCM, and very gentle massaging.

I find salt more drying, unless I am lucky enough to get my hands on some Dead Sea Salt. I usually use sugar though, because it is readily available and cheap.

I use sugar as an overall body scrub, but I'll occasionally make a salt scrub to use on my hands, feet, knees and elbows.

Salt dries my skin, which is why I prefer the sugar method.
