Many body scrubs use artificial fragrances and chemical ingredients to exfoliate the skin. This natural scrub uses almonds and orange peel as natural exfoliants and orange essential oil as natural fragrance. Plus, the fractionated coconut oil is ultra-moisturizing to leave your skin feeling soft and fresh.
What are the benefits of body scrubs?
Exfoliation is an easy way to boost the look and feel of your skin. Because exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells, it can leave your skin looking brighter. It is known to stimulate collagen as well, which helps to keep the skin firm and youthful looking. Since body scrubs help to remove the layer of dead skin cells, they allow other products like lotions and creams to absorb deeper into the skin.
How often should you exfoliate?
Exfoliation and body scrubs can easily be overused and leave your skin dry and irritated. It’s best to keep it to once a week for dry and sensitive skin or to two to three times a week for normal to oily skin.
Pulse almonds in a food processor until small pebbles form. You might need to add a little water or fractionated coconut oil. Add all other ingredients and pulse until well combined and to desired consistency.
