From top to toe, your face, body and feet will benefit from a buff and scrub!
A typical beauty regime incorporates cleansing, toning and moisturising but it is also important to include regular exfoliation to help you maintain a bright and youthful complexion.
Exfoliation helps remove dry, dead skin cells that can clog your pores and make your skin appear dull or lifeless. Clogged pores can lead to mild blemishes or breakouts and are often the cause of blackheads or even some forms of acne. By removing the oil congestion and excess dead cells your skin will glow with a fresh and healthy appearance.
FaceFacial scrubs benefit all skin types. Whether you have an oily, dry, sensitive or mature complexion you can find an exfoliant that suits your needs. You can choose from plant material such as bamboo, wattleseed or sandalwood powder, through to jojoba wax beads or even ground walnut shell. Each granule provides a different level of exfoliation and can be blended to achieve optimal results.
BodyYour arms, legs and torso will also be rewarded by regular exfoliation. It can help tone the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and age spots by revealing the new healthy skin cells of the upper epidermis. Similar to facial scrubs, you can select a variety of exfoliation techniques to use on the body. You can use the same style of granules as the face or even try a sugar or salt scrub for a more vigorous action. By combining the scrub with a loofah or textured cloth you can further enhance the physical effect.
FeetFinally, your feet are also prime candidates for an exfoliating treatment. Who doesn't love soft, sweet little toes? Hard, cracked skin on your heels, calluses, corns or other bumps can leave your feet feeling uncomfortable but by adding a foot scrub to your weekly cleansing routine you can minimise the occurrence of these conditions. Selecting a coarse granule, such as pumice, can help soften and smooth your tootsies while the massage action of the scrub alleviates mild aches.
At Sage, we love the immediate results of a scrub, so why not try making your own exfoliating products? You could make our invigorating Citrus Burst Body Scrub or select a cream or oil base and experiment with different granules and other active ingredients like essential oils. Your skin will celebrate its rejuvenation!
