Taking care of your skin is such an important task. You have to think about cleansing, moisturizing, applying sunscreen, etc… But sometimes we often forget to actually take care of our skin, you know like having self-care time to yourself.
Some nights you just want to have that alone time relaxing in your bathtub with nice warm water and added bath soak/salt or even just simply standing in your shower for a long period just exfoliating your skin using a body scrub.
Take charge and maintain a healthy skincare routine for your body!
Why use a body scrub? Well, a scrub works in various ways as you massage it over your body. A body scrub works just the same as a face scrub by exfoliating your skin to get rid of build up dirt for your skin to have a fresh and radiant appearance.
Is it essential? Yes, think about it. Just for the same reasons why you use a scrub on your face are the same reasons why you should use a body scrub.
Our skin is covered with a layer of dead skin cells. So, the moisturizer that you use needs to make its way through the layers of the dead skins cells to reach the top layer. If you want to have that smooth, soft and silky skin, you must first get rid of the dead skin cells.
This bath scrub smells exceptionally delicious and yummy. The sweet scent of almond oil and vanilla.
You don’t have to use this same brand, but I like this brand because of its natural, organic ingredients. I bought these from Winners/Homesense when I was randomly shopping.
5 great benefits of using a body scrub:
1. Smooth, softer skin.
2. Reduce the appearance of dark spots.
3. Your moisturizer/lotion will work better.
4. Minimize the appearance of large pores.
5. Skin will look fresher and rejuvenated.
I enjoy adding a scoop or a handful of bath salt soak while taking a warm bath. Bath soaks are known to improve the cleaning of your skin and serve as a relaxing agent. The sweet fragrance of this bath soak helps you to enjoy your bath even more.
Bath soaks also assist with detoxifying your skin while opening up those pores to gravitate any form of dirt or oil from your skin while leaving it radiant. Bath soaks are also great because of its extremely satisfying benefit of reducing stress. It helps you to relax and enjoy your bath.
