I'm another year older and it's the perfect time for me to get some new outfits and continue to make your shower experience one to remember. The latest addition to my body scrub range is my Bamboo Body Scrub.
A careful combination of exfoliating sugar and salt, nourishing bamboo powder, hydrating plant based oils of coconut, grapeseed and jojoba oil, and topped off with the delicious smell of freshly cut lemons.
So why should I be the next best thing in your shower? (after you of course)...
Sugar is a gentle exfoliant which removes your dead skin cells and enhances blood circulation to encourage the removal of toxins. Sugar is also a natural humectant which means that it helps to pull moisture from the air which can hydrate your skin. Sugar also helps to stimulate cell rejuvenation which can lead to smoother, youthful looking skin.
Sea salt is a more intense exfoliant for your skin and is great in removing dead skin cells. Salt is a natural detoxifier which can help to absorb toxins, leaving your skin feeling clean and healthy.
Bamboo Powder comes from the Bamboo plant and can also be used as a mild exfoliant for the skin. Bamboo powder contains high levels of silica which helps to absorb oil on the skin, reducing the likelihood of developing pimples and leaving your skin soft and smooth. Silica is also known for its benefits for strengthening hair, nails and skin, particularly with supporting anti-wrinkle and anti-acne activity. Bamboo powder also contains essential vitamins such as A, E and B6, as well as minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Grape seed oil provides a great source of Vitamin E which is important for keeping your skin well moisturised. Grape seed oil also has some antiseptic qualities which can help to reduce the likelihood of developing skin blemishes.
Coconut oil is increasing in popularity and is a great way to moisturise your skin. It helps to keep your skin cell connection strong which can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or sagging. Coconut oil will naturally clear away any dirt, grime, or dead skin cells. It also assists in soothing your skin irritations, prolonging your tan and reducing the signs of ageing.
Jojoba oil is one of the oils most closely matched to the natural oil in the skin. Your skin produces wax esters which keep the skin hydrated and these wax esters diminish as you age. Jojoba oil produces these wax esters naturally and therefore gives your skin the much needed hydration that reduces with ageing. Jojoba oil also contains essential vitamins A, D and E, as well as Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids.
Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that helps to target the signs of ageing. Vitamin E does this by smoothing skin and reducing the signs of wrinkles, hydrating skin to improve skin elasticity and rejuvenating dry skin.
Lemon Essential Oil contains d-limonene – a cancer fighting antioxidant and contains anti-bacterial properties. It also leaves your skin feeling fresh and smelling great…like lemonade – YUM!
