Exfoliating keeps your skin healthy

As we spend more time indoors, not only is our mood under increasing pressure, our skin is also experiencing quite a lot. The dry air at home and a lack of fresh outside air can dry out your skin. So I cannot emphasize enough how important hydration is, epecially now more than ever!

My second best skin care habit? Exfoliating regularly! When I talk to women about their skincare habits, I keep noticing how little attention scrubbing gets. It turns out that there are also a lot of misconceptions about it. First they think it’s painful and secondly, they think that scrubbing pressures sensitive skin even more. The opposite is true. Regular exfoliating is an essential part of a good skincare routine and plays a very crucial role in keeping your skin healthy. Also for those who do not suffer from skin ailments.

Bye bye dead skin cells

Your skin is constantly renewing. Every day, your skin sheds thousands of old skin cells and makes new ones. This process ensures that your body gets a completely new “jacket” every 25 days. And yet your body can use some help with this, because when dead skin cells pile up, they provide a dull, gray complexion. Regular exfoliating removes that layer of old skin cells and thus contributes to a healthy, radiant complexion. But did you know that exfoliating offers many more benefits?

The benefits of scrubbing

  • It prevents clogged pores

Dirt and tallow residues like to settle in your pores. By exfoliating regularly, you prevent these substances from getting stuck under a layer of dead skin cells and doing so, also prevent blackheads and pimples from popping up.

  • Your skin care products work better

Regular scrubbing allows your skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin, making them more effective in nourishing your skin.

  • Exfoliating brightens your complexion

Exfoliating also smoothens the skin texture, making your complexion look smoother over time. Do you suffer from dark spots and hyperpigmentation? Then you should not miss this important step!

  • It boosts lymph drainage

Exfoliating stimulates the supply of oxygenated blood to the skin’s surface and helps to remove toxins and other waste products. A must for a healthy glow!

  • Better cell renewal

In addition to better blood circulation, exfoliating also gives cell renewal a boost. Dead skin cells are better removed, so that new skin cells literally have all the space to grow.

  • It promotes collagen synthesis

Regular exfoliating boosts collagen synthesis, improving the texture and elasticity of your skin and leaving your skin looking plump, toned and vital. Interesting anti-aging benefits. Not surprisingly, many people swear by exfoliating to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

  • It prevents ingrown hairs

Nothing more annoying than annoying ingrown hairs. Exfoliating your skin regularly helps loosen subcutaneous hairs so you can widen them more easily. A must for smooth legs!

Because the skin on your face is a lot thinner and more sensitive than the skin on your body, an adapted scrub is a must. Treat your body with love and softness and stay away from overly aggressive products.

Our tip for your face

Made with rice grains, our Boost of Oxygen Facial Scrub gets rid of dead skin cells and gives your blood circulation a boost, rewarding you with a nice healthy glow. Let the scrub sit in your skin for one minute for an extra deep effect and then, rinse. Finish with a dab of nourishing day or night cream.

Extra tip: Use the Boost of Softness Konjac Sponge on days when you’re not using a facial scrub. Wet the sponge and remove impurities and tallow residues in a circular motion. The sponge moisturizes the skin and keeps the pH value in balance without affecting the oils of the skin.

Our tip for your body

For our Fine Deluxe Body Scrub, we chose salt minerals from the Dead Sea that purify and nourish. Apply a few handfuls of the scrub to your damp skin and massage over your skin in circular movements. Rinse with lukewarm water and then apply the Fine Delicate Body Butter for a blissful pampering moment and silky smooth skin.

In addition to intensive cleansing, our scrubs also provide intensive care, thanks to the most nourishing ingredients from Mother Nature such as:

  • Shea Butter: packed with vitamins A, D, E, F and other complex fatty acids that hydrate and repair dry, chapped skin
  • Macadamia: Rich in vitamins that help restore the skin’s moisture balance and reduce redness.
  • Argan Oil: Packed with fatty acids that protects your skin and prevents skin aging.
  • Coconut Oil: Rich in lauric and palmitic acid that help repair the damaged skin layer.

How often should you scrub?

Treating your face and body with a gentle scrub twice a week is a good starting point. But above all, listen to your skin. For skin problems such as rosacea, it is best to keep once a week. Does your complexion look dull? Then you can easily exfoliate three to four times a week to bring your skin back to life.
