After a stressful work week, I can't think of anything better than relaxing in my very own 'home spa'! For me, this typically consists of turning on some soft jazz, lighting a favourite scented candle, taking a nice hot shower, exfoliating, moisturizing, applying a facial masque and then putting my feet up and losing myself in a good book. Anyone relate?
Mechanical exfoliation (with granules such as sugar, salt, pumice stone, or walnut shells) is one of my favourite skin treats. The sensation of massaging the granules onto skin is invigorating, and helps improve blood circulation at the skin level. The pleasant, therapeutic scent helps one unwind. The granules help loosen and remove dull, dead skin cells that have accumulated on skin's surface. This reveals smooth, soft skin beneath, and helps prevent clogged pores. Moisturizing oils boost and hydrate skin, giving it a radiant glow. Regular exfoliation brightens the complexion and improves penetration and effectiveness of skin care products.
For Daya Botanica's all natural hand and body scrub, we chose organic brown sugar as our mechanical exfoliant. Sugar granules are generally smaller and smoother than salt granules, which means they are gentler on the skin and less abrasive. They also easily dissolve in warm water, and are less likely to cause a 'stinging' feeling if you have sensitive skin.
Our scrubs are enriched with a blend of grape seed oil, sunflower seed oil, jojoba seed oil, wheat germ seed oil, and coconut oil. These gentle yet nourishing ingredients provide visible benefits to your skin even from the first use!
