Treelova’s Handmade Body Scrub Benefits
The skin is in a constant state of turnover: Dead skin rises to the surface, sheds naturally and reveals the baby soft skin underneath. This process slows over time, contributing to a buildup of dead cells on the skin’s surface. Add pollution and other forms of environmental stress to the mix, and you have a recipe for dull, rough and itchy skin.
As with all exfoliants, the goal of a body scrub is to remove dead skin cells and encourage the healthy production of new ones. This type of mechanical exfoliation not only smooths and polishes the skin but also draws out impurities. Dr Tasneem Bhatia MD – integrative health expert, founder of CentrespringMD, and author of The Super Woman RX – recommend exfoliation as an excellent way to support detoxification. Dr Bhatia states that “your skin helps detoxification pathways with enzymes and chemical reactions that release toxins and decrease oxidative stress in the body.”
The benefits of body scrubs include:
- Promoting efficient circulation and skin cell turnover
- Removing dead cells from the skin’s surface
- Smoothing and softening rough, dry skin
- Drawing out impurities and clearing congestion
- Freeing ingrown hairs and smoothing razor bumps
Coffee grounds are slightly abrasive but still gentle as a skin exfoliator – which is why it’s one of my favourite body scrub ingredients. Brown sugar is a little more abrasive than coffee grounds, but definitely not pain-inducing as some sea salt scrubs can be. The sticky sugar helps the body scrub to stick together, along with the moisturizing oil.
