I cannot tell you the amount of costly products I have purchased from lotions to body scrubs only to find that they did nothing more for my skin than to smell nice. Having sensitive skin and suffering from patches of eczema my whole life, I came to the realization that I should not have to be careful about the products I use, but rather, it was the companies making those products that should be more responsible in the products they make.
I decided that I wanted to use only 100% pure and natural products on my skin, not 95% natural. I began researching and combining different herbs, fruits, vegetables, essential oils and vitamins and tested each combination on my skin. I found that with regular use of my handmade products, I had far less eruptions of my eczema, my skin was supple and moisturized for almost 24 hours and I had no more break outs.
I learned, firsthand, the benefits of an all natural body scrub. Whether you’re using a sugar scrub, a salt scrub, a coffee scrub or some other exfoliating property, one thing is unanimous. Removing dead skin cells, your skin rejuvenates its healthy glow as the top flaky, dry and dull layer gets washed off. It also removes toxins that the skin shields itself from allowing to pass through as well as caked on dirt and oil. Scrubs are comprised of refined and granulated that when rubbed against the skin will completely remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Regular bathing and washing with normal soaps does not give your skin the essential benefits of a body scrub and additionally, adds to the residual oils and toxins.
Spirit Cove’s body scrubs are good for all skin types. They unclog pores and provide a deep clean thereby decreasing residual oils. Because dry, dead skin accumulates and lays on the surface, the extra oil becomes built up and causes a clogging of your pores. A scrub removes that layer thereby removing the chance of oil becoming trapped. This stops breakouts. Scrubs also stimulate blood circulation and the production of the skin’s own natural oils, which adds to the skin’s luster and moisture.
There is no need for a separate moisturizer, as all of Spirit Cove’s body scrubs are fortified with specially formulated essential oils for added moisture which increase the skin’s vitality. Once you remove the barrier of dead skin cells, the essential oil is simultaneously absorbed by your skin.
