I’ve recently been scrubbing! Yes I do normally wash but I mean actually using body and face scrub. I can’t tell you the difference it has made to my skin.
I must admit I don’t generally have serious issues with my skin but as I sometimes tan (dun dun dun) I can get small dry batches on my face or red blotches and scrubbing completely makes these batches disappear.
As summer is approaching and a lot more skin will be on show, it’s likely you want your skin to look smooth, soft and blemish free. Scrubbing is definitely the way to go if you want to achieve this. By getting rid of the dead skin cells, you are left with a beautiful glowing complexion.
It’s also said to reduce cellulite and improve blood circulation, preventing vacuous veins. I also love the fact it means I get to spend an extra 10 minutes in the bathroom. My bathroom time is ME time!
Creating a Ritual
Try on one day a week to create a little bathroom ritual. I like to do mine on a Sunday evening or a Friday afternoon if I have it off. I’ll run a bubble bath, make a cup of herbal tea or homemade hot cacao, take my book and a few of my favourite new beauty products (scrub, hair mask, coconut oil, body cream, hand cream) and spend about 30-40 minutes relaxing! I leave my phone out of the bathroom!
I haven’t experimented with many scrubs but the ones I have discovered are pretty awesome. Here’s my top 3 I’ve been using…
1. Soap and Glory, The Scrub of your Life
2. Frank Bod
3. Temple Spa, Breakfast Smoothie
Happy Scrubbing and Bathroom Ritual Time!
