Body scrubs are a popular skincare treatment that offer numerous benefits for the skin. By removing dead skin cells and revealing smoother, brighter skin, body scrubs provide a rejuvenating experience for the skin. These scrubs contain small exfoliating particles that effectively remove dead skin when rubbed onto the skin. The addition of nourishing ingredients provides hydration and protection for the skin. Regular use of body scrubs can improve the appearance of skin, boost circulation, and unclog pores.

What results can you expect from a body scrub?

The physical exfoliation removes dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter skin. This can help improve the overall appearance of the skin, making it look more youthful and radiant. Additionally, regular use of a body scrub can boost circulation, which can help improve the health and appearance of the skin. The hydration and nourishment provided by the ingredients in the scrub can also help improve the skin's texture and moisture levels. In addition, using a body scrub can prevent breakouts, leaving the skin looking and feeling clearer.

How do you use a body scrub?

Using a body scrub is a simple process that can be done in the shower or bath. First, wet your skin and then apply a small amount of the scrub onto your skin. Gently massage the scrub onto your skin using circular motions, focusing on areas that are particularly dry or rough. Take care to avoid sensitive areas such as the face or neck. Once you have thoroughly massaged the scrub into your skin, rinse it off with warm water. After rinsing, it's recommended to apply a moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated, unless your scrub has built in moisturisers such as shea or mango butter. Body scrubs should be used sparingly, typically once or twice a week, to avoid over-exfoliating and damaging the skin. Don’t forget that It's important to choose a body scrub suitable for your skin type!

How do you choose the right body scrub?

When choosing a body scrub, it's important to consider your skin type and any specific skin concerns. For dry skin, look for a scrub with nourishing ingredients like oils or butters. For sensitive skin, opt for a gentler scrub with smaller exfoliating particles or choose a scrub specifically designed for sensitive skin. For oily or acne-prone skin, look for a scrub with salicylic acid or tea tree oil, which can help reduce breakouts. It's also important to consider the exfoliating particles in the scrub. Sugar and salt are common exfoliating particles, but there are also scrubs with fruit pits, coffee grounds, and other ingredients. We prefer to use sugar for its conditioning benefits and salts for their mineral content and strong exfoliation benefits.

What can this do for your routine?

The massage-like motion of using a body scrub can have a therapeutic effect on the body and mind. The gentle, circular motions involved in using a body scrub can help increase blood flow and promote a sense of relaxation, reducing tension and stress. Additionally, the massage-like action can help improve the function of the lymphatic system, which helps to remove waste and toxins from the body. This can lead to an overall improvement in the health and appearance of the skin. Furthermore, the soothing scent of the ingredients in the body scrub can have an aromatherapeutic effect, helping to calm and soothe the mind. In this way, adding a body scrub to your skincare routine can be a simple, yet effective, way to promote overall wellbeing and relaxation. Beyond just the physical benefits, using a body scrub can provide a rejuvenating and restorative experience, helping to enhance both the appearance and wellbeing of the skin.

I’ve read everything I can find about your body butters but nowhere is there a definitive list of the ingredients. You say for example there is mango butter avocado and blood orange in one but don’t give a full list of ingredients. Can you enlighten me please as I’m really interested. And which would be best for sensitive skin?
