Natural Scrubs – who wants smoother skin?!
Do you regularly exfoliate your skin? That simple change may make a world of difference to smooth out the skin. You can use a loofa or a scrub, or even both.
SCRUBS & MORE
A scrub can help a lot, just be careful of any Parfum/fragrance they may include. Although the make it smell great, synthetic fragrances can cause allergic reactions, like razor bumps and break outs, but studies indicate that they can be responsible for even worse problems, including neurotoxicity, endocrine disruptors that can cause reproductive organ cancers, and also contain pthalates (BPA), which is highly toxic. We believe fragrance to be one of the more dangerous ingredients and highlyrecommend avoiding it always.
We’ve tried a few natural scrubs that we’ve really liked, here are our latest loves:
Simple Gift Farms – they use essential oils and all natural and organic ingredients and are amazing! They worked great and left the skin feeling wonderful.
Simple Sugars – this company just sent some yummy products to try. They are nice, and nutrient rich (just don’t eat the sugar! 🙂 But we really liked them too.
L’or de la Mer Organic Anti Cellulite Body Blaster Scrub with Seaweed – Move over razor bumps and lets talk cellulite removal for a second. This is a more agressive scrub, but a wonderful option for fighting cellulite and detoxifying the skin. It’s more pricey, but if those are the things you’re wanting, this is close to magic. It worked great!
Or, you could make a simple DIY Natural scrub in minutes:
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
Mix together, then spread on area and rub gently prior to showering. Wash off before shaving. By exfoliating the area, you can help eliminate excess dead skin that could be causing a reaction. The salt in the scrub also aids an an anti-bacterial to keep irritation down as well.
As always, let us know how you love it!
