How Long Does Buddy Scrub Last?

Hey gorgeous, by now you might be pretty familiar with my outfits – Raw CacaoGreen Tea and Activated Charcoal. Each bag comes with 200 grams of natural scrubbing goodness to exfoliate, nourish and moisturise your skin.

Depending on how much scrub you use and how often you scrub up with me, will depend on how long I last before you’re scrambling back to www.buddyscrub.com.au to get more of me. If you scrub one to two times a week, which is recommended, and use small handfuls of scrub I should last around 6-8 scrubs.

If you don’t scrub that often, that’s ok but I don’t really like hanging out in bathroom cupboards and would much prefer being with you. Scrubbing at least once a week is the perfect way to ensure your skin is regularly rid of dry skin and dirt, and that your skin is being provided with nourishing oils, essential vitamins and minerals.

How Do I Use Buddy Scrub?

 

So you’ve seen me around and think it’s about time we got a little dirty together. You get me home to your place, take off your clothes and get into a hot shower with me. You slowly rip off my top and take a peek at the goodness I have to offer you. It’s about time we got better acquainted, after all I am the ultimate friend with benefits. But what’s the best way to get what you want from me? Well, here are my tips on making this a shower date to remember:

  1. Make sure you wet your body in the shower
  2. Take a small handful of me by either tilting my bag into your hand or using a spoon. Make sure to seal me up afterwards to avoid water getting in my bag.
  3. Gently rub me over your body in circular motions to exfoliate your skin.
  4. You can choose to leave me on your skin for a few minutes to let the nourishing ingredients and oils absorb, or you can wash me straight off under the shower water.
  5. My natural plant based oils should leave a thin layer of oil on your skin which will absorb into your skin and keep it hydrated. If you have naturally oily skin, you might like to use some body wash to remove any excess oil.
  6. Now your skin is exfoliated, nourished and moisturised all in one and all with completely natural ingredients.

Make sure we keep this fling a regular thing.

Which Skin Type Are You?

Which skin type are you?

 

Cause I’m all about that skin, bout that skin...

One thing that everyone should know is what type of skin type they are. Knowing this information is important because it informs your decisions when purchasing skincare and cosmetic products, as well as what your skincare regime should be. Your skin type can change over time so it’s good to have a think about it every few years and see if you have noticed any differences in how your skin looks.

Skin type is often determined by a few different factors:

  • Water content
  • Oil content
  • Sensitivity

There are four common skin types, which each have unique signs so that you can determine which type applies to you: 

Oily Skin – an overproduction of oil which can clog pores and encourage skin conditions

  • Shiny, thick complexion
  • Prone to blackheads, pimples and skin conditions such as acne
  • Enlarged pores

Recommendation – My Activated Charcoal Body Scrub.

I contain exfoliating ingredients to help wash away excess oil and grime. Activated charcoal and kaolin powder can absorb more than one hundred times their weight and can help to restore the natural balance of oil on your skin. Finally, jojoba oil can help to reduce the oily nature of your skin as it is the closest plant oil to your skin’s oil and does not leave a residue. 

Dry Skin – an underproduction of oil which can leave skin flaky and irritated

  • Dull complexion
  • Flaky, red patches
  • Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis
  • Itchiness
  • Less elasticity making wrinkles and dark circles more noticeable

Recommendation – My Raw Cacao Body Scrub

I help to target dry patches by gently exfoliating away dead or flakey skin. I can also help to address dry patches by removing any bacteria and hydrating the skin with nourishing plant based oils. Raw cacao powder is an antioxidant super house which can help to reduce the processes that cause free radicals and help to balance out the surface of your skin. 

Combination Skin – a little bit oily in spots and a little bit dry in spots which can call for different products for different areas. Common oily spots can be the t-zone and the chin.

  • A combination of the signs seen with both oily and dry skin types
  • Visible pores
  • Blackheads and pimples only in specific areas

Recommendation – My Green Tea Body Scrub

I contain exfoliating ingredients to help softly scrub away dry skin and bacteria. The green tea powder aims to soothe and replenish skin, helping to soothe irritated areas. This scrub contains three nourishing oils, including jojoba and coconut oil, which combine to help hydrate dry skin and also help to balance out oily skin. 

Normal Skin – The Goldilocks of skin types, not too oily and not too dry – it’s just right.

  • No sensitivity to cosmetic or skincare products
  • Rarely have imperfections or skin conditions
  • Even skin tone
  • Pores are not easily visible

Recommendation – All of my body scrubs!

Buddy Scrub aims to suit the masses and the combination of my many natural ingredients help to address issues that people can experience with their skin. Try me out for yourself…once you’ve had a taste of your ‘friend with benefits’ it will be hard to go back!

8 Health and Skin Benefits of Green Tea Matcha

Green tea has been around for many many years, however more recently it has come to the forefront as a staple ingredient in food, beverages and skincare. Many of your much loved products are turning green and for good reason, as green tea has many health benefits that make it a superfood for your body and skin.

 

  1. Matcha is rich in chlorophyll which is a natural detoxifier and helps to remove toxins from your skin and body.
  2. Matcha contains high levels of catechins, which are a potent antioxidant and help to fight the processes that cause free radicals and prevent poor health.
  3. Matcha helps to absorb and prevent excess oil and sebum on your skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of acne and blackheads.
  4. Matcha naturally produces energising properties, which helps to stimulate skin cells and blood flow to help reduce the effects of ageing.
  5. Matcha contains more antioxidants than dark chocolate, spinach and fruits like acai combined.
  6. Matcha contains a number of important nutrients, including iron, protein, potassium, calcium and vitamin C.
  7. Matcha contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that supports relaxed and smooth skin.
  8. Matcha contains anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce the appearance of skin conditions and support radiant skin.

 

Now that you know some of the great benefits of green tea matcha powder, you can see why it’s included in my Green Tea Body Scrub. This scrub gently exfoliates your skin with sugar and pure sea salt, nurtures your skin with green tea powder and moisturises with plant based oils.
