There’s nothing like giving your skin a little TLC when the weather’s getting cooler. Change in weather can really dry out skin and can leave our skin feeling tight, flaky and scaly. BUT! There is an easy way to ensure the delicate skin on our face is getting enough love and staying hydrated, supple and glowing throughout the cooler months... enter scrubs! Scrubs can help shed dead skin cells and buff away flaky and scaly skin leaving skin feeling clean, clear and ready to most optimally absorb your moisturiser/serum/oils. Dead skin cells can block pores and prevent moisture from being readily absorbed so by buffing these away your skin is left the best chance to rehydrate.
Here are some of our favourite scrubs!
Pai Kukui and Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator
This scrub is very gentle using only jojoba beads that are perfectly round so they don’t damage your skin. They work with Kukui Plant to remove dead skin cells and grime from the face leaving the skin bright. Omegas 3 and 6 and Vitamins A, D and E come from using almond oil, apricot kernel oil and avocado oil which will leave skin moisturised and nourished. A great one for sensitive skin beauties!
Pollen Botanicals Honey and Sugar Exfoliator
We love how simple this scrub is. Organic raw honey, organic sugar and organic kiwi and papaya fruit extracts- that’s it! All certified organic, using the antibacterial properties of honey, the natural fruit acid exfoliation of the Kiwi and Papaya Fruit and sugar to buff away dead skin cells. This is a great option for beauties with oily/combination skin.
Vanessa Megan Prebiotic + C Brightening Exfoliator
This exfoliator can be used either daily, or weekly as mask. It uses rice powder, which is anti-inflammatory to calm the skin to absorb excess oil, grapefruit extract to boost the skin with Vitamin C and Bentonite Clay to draw out toxins and impurities and leave skin glowing. 'Yogurtene' (a unique fermented extract used by Vanessa Megan) is also included to leave the skin firm and youthful.
Supercharged Food Earth Mask and Scrub
This seriously amazing product is a scrub and mask all in one! Using the purest food grade Diatomaceous Earth to gently scrub away dead skin cells and Volcamin which is a detoxifying and alkalising mineral from Lightning Ridge in outback Australia. To use as a scrub, all you need to do is mix a small about with water and work into the skin in circular motions to leave behind glowing, soft and clean skin.
