Wooo! It’s nearly summer! Can you feel it? I can! So who is off on holiday this summer? It’s an in built thing to want to look and feel great when we’re away isn’t it?
So how can we make sure we look our best while we’re away? Or even just when we’re relaxing at home? Well my answer to this is exfoliation for the nation! (Sorry… couldn’t resist!) But seriously… exfoliating really is the best way to look after your skin and keep it looking in tip top condition.
This is why we created our Beach Ready Body Polish! We wanted something to compliment our Blissful Body Butter so that we could have a full on pamper session on the days we needed a little pick me up!
Your body naturally gets rid of its dead skin cells as it makes new ones. It’s dead clever like that! But sometimes it can struggle to keep up. So a little exfoliation once or twice a week can really help it along! It It will also encourage the skin to produce new skin cells which will keep it looking its best!
We kept things simple by using Dead Sea Salts as our base here. It’s a coarse enough grain to gently exfoliate the skin, but fine enough that it won’t irritate! It also has the added benefit of being a detoxifying agent. So as you’re gently exfoliating your skin, you’re also drawing out toxins from the skin. Nice!
As for the essential oils, we went for Orange, Lemon & Lime. Mostly for the wonderful fragrance the combination creates. It’s amazingly uplifting and it just makes you feel so fresh and zingy! But there are some surprising benefits hidden within these oils as well!
We all know Lemon is a fabulous cleanser… but did you know that it’s also an antibacterial and antioxidant?! That means it will help brighten your skin and stop it looking dull!
Orange essential oil can help the body to absorb vitamin C and increase blood flow! This is essential for keeping your skin looking youthful! It can also help to boost collagen production! Bonus!
And Lime? Well this underrated little fruit packs a powerful punch! It’s anti-allergenic, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic! Phew! So not only will it smell amazing when you use it, but it will do your skin the world of good by fighting off bad bacteria and reducing inflammation!
