Many women think like I used to, back when I really started using skin care products on a daily basis. “My skin is extremely sensitive and I will never exfoliate, because it's just to scary.” That notion is absolutely wrong. It’s a very common mistake to think that sandy texture of skincare exfoliators is harmful, while in reality, exfoliation removes dead skin cells, leaving your skin radiant and smooth.
Before we start talking about our local product suggestions, it’s important to keep in mind that you should never exfoliate when you are sunburned or have any open cuts or wounds.
Ok. Beauty Buff is now ready to present to you three of the greatest local organic exfoliators.
Bee Smooth Skin Care gives a big promise for all skin types with its Natural Sugar Scrub: “Our sugar scrubs will leave your skin with a fresh, healthy glow. All natural and very gentle to your skin, it is great for all skin types. It is best if used in the shower after cleansing with your favorite soap.” They have various scents that you can choose from: Citrus, Coffee, Eucalyptus Spearmint, Lavender Vanilla, Lemon Cream, and Lemon Grass Rosemary.
Sugar Scrub, Bee Smooth Skin Care, $6
Another great local find among exfoliators is the Berry 2.0 Face Scrub from Moonvine. “With Jojoba beads and hibiscus oil, this daily facial scrub exfoliates and detoxifies with blueberries, cranberries, dandelion and rhubarb.” Its fragrance is not so strong, which is perfect for those of you who like to use moisturizers with strong scents after taking a shower.
Berry 2.0 Face Scrub, Moonvine, $15
And last but not least, the Turtle Scrub from Blissful Bean. Its name was inspired by the owner’s turtle, after trying to find a creative way to scrub the turtle’s outer shell. The Turtle Scrub is a coffee body scrub that can be used by people of all skin types. Why did she use coffee? Well, coffee has healing and astringent properties, and caffeine is known to firm and tone the skin. Ok, that doesn’t mean you should drink coffee all the time.
Turtle Scrub, Blissful Bean. $18
If you skin is kind of sensitive try not to exfoliate everyday. Remember: Great results come with a balanced routine, so never exaggerate. Enjoy!
