Never bothered much with exfoliation before? If the years are passing you by and you‘ve noticed your skin looking a little lack-lustre and dull, you may want to reconsider. Just like your face, your body also needs exfoliation to stay soft and smooth.
To kick start the anti-ageing process, exfoliation is one of the most effective ways to promote youthful and glowing skin. Body scrubs are physical exfoliants that slough away dead skin cells and help promote softer and smoother skin. Exfoliation can help increase circulation, reduce cellulite, and even assist the body with its natural regeneration process. All of which results in brighter, firmer, more healthy-looking skin.
As we age, our body’s natural ability to shed skin cells slows down considerably. Younger skin regenerates every 28 days, but over time the natural regeneration process slows down which leads to a variety of changes and can result in clogged pores, change in texture, and dull skin.
Fortunately, exfoliation can help speed things up by working to unclog pores and improve overall cellular renewal allowing the skin to function better and results in smoother, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
Proper exfoliation helps to enhance absorption of your skin care products allowing the potent nutrients in your everyday products to penetrate to the deepest layers of your skin, where the ageing process initiates.
The feel of Aequora’s Exfoliating Body Scrub typically comes from a combination of sugar suspended in an oil base of Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil along with Vitamin E, Kakadu Plum, Lilly Pilly and Quandong fruit extract and our signature blend of essential oils.
These premium organic sugar particles polish your skin without being abrasive.
Because of its ability to stimulate overall cellular turnover, exfoliation can also aid in collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are crucial to anti-ageing and youthful-looking skin. That’s because they both work together to strengthen the skin’s structure and improve its ability to stretch. As we age, our collagen and elastin levels decrease, so a boost in production helps reduce wrinkles resulting in more youthful-looking skin.
The stimulating action of exfoliation can also boost circulation and support the body’s natural detoxifying process. This, in turn, can help fade the look of stretch marks, get rid of cellulite, and more.
In addition to softer, smoother, more supple-looking skin, exfoliation allows newer, healthier skin cells to develop. As we’ve previously mentioned, sloughing away dead skin cells promotes cellular regeneration, boosts circulation and enhances the body’s detoxification process — all of which contribute to newer, healthier skin cells.
Dead skin cells are not just the cause of rough, dry skin; they’re the cause of dull skin, too! Exfoliation can help slough away the dullness and promote a brighter, more illuminated complexion.
Sugar & salt scrubs: Perhaps one of the most common ways to get rid of dry, dead skin is by using a salt or sugar scrub. Exfoliants are often formulated with skin-nourishing oils and they work to slough away dead skin cells and nourish the skin at the same time. Sugar granules are rounder and less abrasive than salt, making them a gentler exfoliant.
Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid ( an AHA) and helps break down the layers of dead skin and speed up rehydration, keeping skin conditioned and moisturised. This makes sugar scrubs ideal for dry and dehydrated skin types.
