Summer fever is crashing down on us faster than flower and shower season, and if you’re like most of us who come out of sniffle and pollen season with dull, congested skin, be extra careful. ! Exfoliation is one of the most overlooked steps in a skincare routine. It just so happens to be the integral extra step towards your most glowing skin ever.
For many of us, our skincare routine is as simple as cleanse, moisturize and go! But the unsung hero of any skincare routine might just be exfoliation. It just so happens to be the extra step in the right direction towards your most glowing skin ever. But did you know that there is more than one method for crazy exfoliation?
It’s true, it’s not always the gritty treatment we get at the spa or the skin-scratching apricot scrub of the mainstream market. We’re going to share with you three absolutely simple ways to achieve healthier, glowing skin this summer and beyond using a natural exfoliator that’s right for your skin type.
Also be sure to check out our guide on how to exfoliate your skin type if you need a quick refresher. Now, let’s take action to exfoliate well and find the best natural exfoliator for the skin of your dreams!
Why use a natural exfoliator
As we mentioned earlier, many of us are familiar with products that contain some type of particles that help exfoliate our skin. Often, traditional exfoliating products are bad, no bueno, don’t wear off, and don’t build up. Yes, it’s a little over the top or over the top, but there’s great importance in shunning conventional exfoliating scrubs to save your money and your skin ownership.
Some of the most popular scrubs on the market use hard particles like sugar, nutshells, and microbeads. Rubbing large grains of sugar, salt, or shells on your skin can contribute to micro tears and skin damage over time. Microbeads, which are small plastic balls, can over time damage not only our skin, but also the environment and wildlife.
These microbeads can leak into our sewers in local waters and end up poisoning marine and animal life as well as getting into the food we eat. Plastic microbeads are also loaded with BPA, which are hormone disruptors for human and animal life.
At this level of development and innovation in cosmetics, there is NEVER any reason to use plastic microbeads. Jojoba esters, fruit extracts and sea salt are all eco-friendly alternatives to plastic microbeads. Instead, a natural exfoliator is the way to go.
Start with an award-winning formula
An example of an all-natural exfoliant is our Acai Pulp Facial Scrub. Featuring the superfood acai, our scrub is fit for a queen, loaded with antioxidants, vitamins A and C, and even essential oils to reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion. Some other superstar ingredients found in this scrub include bergamot oil and goji fruit. Bergamot is an oil derived from potent citrus peel and helps purify skin and unclog pores. Goji berries are also rich in vitamin C; they contain amino acids that help plump and smooth the skin for a more youthful complexion.
Combined with antioxidant-rich blueberries, our natural face scrub is truly superfruit heaven. But the benefits don’t stop there. The rich nutrients in our scrub don’t compromise function but rather enhance its exfoliating power, thanks to the fact that we use grapeseed scrubs rather than harmful plastic microbeads.
These natural exfoliators are gentle yet powerful enough to remove bumps, scales and dead skin to reveal softer, brighter skin. This makes this natural exfoliator particularly effective and easy to use. Apply the product to damp skin and in upward circular motions, rub gently to remove impurities or leave it on for 15 minutes as a powerful facial mask. The results? Dandruff-free skin that isn’t dull or dry, but hydrated, glowing and as soft as a silk shirt.
Tools, tips and exfoliating products for the ultra exfoliating phase
Exfoliation can work wonders on skin that’s a little rough around the edges. But sometimes bumps, scales and dry patches are a little more finicky and require some skin discipline. This is where exfoliation tools and supreme nourishment come into the complexion class.
They’ll be ancient history 101 once you’ve perfected a few tools and a hydration of the trade:
Charcoal Konjac Sponge
Facial scrubs are great, but again, they’re not the only way to exfoliate. As they say, variety is the spice of life. That’s where our Charcoal Konjac Sponge comes in. Charcoal is known to be one of the most brightening and detoxifying products in skincare. Combined with the gentle yet potent konjac plant, this sponge is a triple threat (for problem skin, that is).
To use, simply dampen the sponge, add a dab of your favorite natural cleanser and scrub. This sponge is ideal for sensitive skin due to its soft texture and all-natural ingredients.
Besides being skin brightening and cleansing, charcoal and konjac are amazing for treating skin issues related to clogged pores. This includes blackheads, whiteheads, dull skin, flaky skin, and imbalanced skin. Say goodbye to blemishes and hello to your new career as a beauty teacher. You can thank us later.
