Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in my beauty regime apart from cleansing and moisturising because it helps to >
1) Reduce post-acne blemishes
2) Unclog pores
(The more we remove dry skin cells on the surface, the less oil will stay trapped in the pores)
3) Smoothen the skin
After trying these face scrubs from St.Ives, I'm sold!
They are made with 100% natural exfoliants and naturally cleanses + exfoliates the skin.
Each product has its own unique claim and benefits but the apricot scrub is my favourite because it effectively reduces blemishes and cleans my pores without drying the skin.
Apricot extracts have high levels of purifying carotenoids and antioxidants so they are effective in cleaning, polishing and nourishing skin.
This scrub also contains a special ingredient - corn kernel meal from dried corns. It is a gentle but effective exfoliant that promotes new cell growth for softer and radiant skin. Walnut shell powder also gently exfoliates, revealing a brighter complexion.
The post-acne blemishes on my chin have been greatly reduced thanks to this apricot scrub!
Plus points for the amazing fruity scent thats extremely refreshing and rejuvenating especially when I use it in the mornings!
While the apricot scrub is my personal favourite, J prefers the oatmeal scrub that can be used as a mask as well! It is extremely gentle and great for sensitive skin like his. It combines creamy oatmeal with 100% natural exfoliants.
The scrubbers are extremely light for this one and helps smooth away dullness to reveal supple skin.
Here is J enjoying his hydrating mask! Simply apply product and leave on for 5-7 minutes.
Last but not least, I want to share with you the green tea scrub that is great in preventing blackheads.
This scrub blends green tea, olive lead extract and 100% natural silica exfoliants like all other St.Ives products.
Take you pick from the above range! There is bound to be something for everyone (:
