Let’s SCRUB the winter away!
Exfoliating / scrub is like doing stretching excercises after ( or before ) a long run. Nobody wants to do it. Right ? We don’t feel like stretching and our favourite excuse is that we don’t have the time…. But everyone wants to have an amazing skin. What a contradiction. Actually scrub / exfoliating should be part of our daily beauty routine. They refresh and rejuvenate your skin. Benefits of body scrubs include the removal of dead skin cells as a result of exfoliation with a mild body scrub extend to moisturizing as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into the healthy skin. Exfoliating the tired or dead cells also speeds up the skin renewal process, allowing new healthy cells to take their place. Sooo let’s SCRUB the winter away. Here is the list of our favourites! xoxo
