Spring is finally here and with it comes warmer weather, longer daylight hours, and the blooming of plants. Long gone are winter’s cold, blistery mornings. We’re now welcomed to birds chirping, butterflies and bees flitting around, and a kaleidoscope of color brought by blooming flowers. It’s as if nature has shed off its winter layers and is displaying a much brighter, colorful complexion.
Like Mother Nature, we too can slough off our dry skin and reveal a healthier glow through some skincare spring cleaning. The epidermis, the outer layer of skin, is made up of five layers of cells that work together to protect our inner bodily systems from infection and trauma. Over time, new skin cells are created, and push the existing skin cells up. The outer layer of skin becomes dry and eventually falls off. What’s revealed is softer, younger skin ready to go to work. In order to keep your skin soft and nourished, it’s important to use proper skincare that protects and nurtures. Our body and face scrubs do just that.
Sugar contains natural forms of glycolic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), known for its rich exfoliating and regenerating properties. Glycolic acid penetrates the skin and breaks down the bonds that hold together skin cells. This in turn allows that outer layer of skin cells to slough off and promotes the generation of new skin cells. Glycolic acid in sugar leaves you with fresher, smoother skin, perfect for your skincare spring cleaning.
Our Body Scrubs contain organic cane sugar’s rich properties, along with other super ingredients to aid in repairing and renewing your skin. The high amounts of antioxidants found in the Geranium + Hibiscus Body Scrub work to even skin hyperpigmentation and boost collagen production, leaving your skin soft to the touch yet taut when pulled. It’s a perfect scrub to exfoliate the face and your more delicate areas…booty scrub, anyone?
High amounts of camphor in our Blue Tansy Body Scrub are ideal for reducing inflammation and repairing skin damage from UV light over-exposure. A part of the chamomile family, blue tansy and chamomile extracts also soothe irritated skin, treat acne breakouts and prevent future ones. Massage this scrub on your acne problem areas, like your back or chin, to attack those stubborn pimples.
Lastly, if you’d like to do some spring cleaning to your face and lips, look no further than to our Green Tea + Agave Body Scrub. Your skin will love the high amounts of antioxidants from green tea to keep your skin firm, along with the anti-inflammatory properties from agave. This smooth scrub is partnered with shea butter and apricot kernel oil to deeply moisturize the skin and treat acne.
2020 has been a whirlwind of a year, with major adjustments to our normal routines. But we can certainly make the best of this current predicament by prioritizing our health and wellbeing. We encourage you to use this time to enjoy the warm, beautiful weather, do some skincare spring cleaning, and take care of you.
