Get Your Best Post-Winter Skin: A joeSCRUB Routine
As we transition into spring, shedding our dry winter skin is a beauty must-do. Higher temperatures will soon arrive and surely we’ll be showing off some skin (along with our new flirty shorts and skirts). We recommend you find the best exfoliation routine for you to reveal gorgeous, glowing, healthy skin. One of the best ways to rid our skin of unwanted dead skin cells is through exfoliation. And even though we’ve mentioned that exfoliation is important post-winter, you should actually be doing it all year long- about 2-3 times a week to be exact. Why? Because your skin naturally sheds millions of skin cells every day but eventually slows down, causing the skin to lose its luster.
Exfoliating the skin regularly
Slows your skin’s aging process
Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Keeps pores clean and unclogged- dead skin cells trap oil in the skin, causing breakouts
Encourages building new, healthy skin cells
Brightens and evens skin tone
Soothes psoriasis and eczema
Most people exfoliate with a scrub. But most of the products out there contain harsh synthetic ingredients like parabens, formaldahide, unnaturnal fragrances. If you’re giving your skin a spa day, don’t we want natural ingredients absorbed into the body? That’s why we decided to give our bath supplies a joeSCRUB overhaul. These delicious exfoliating scrubs of goodness are vegan, cruelty free and contain endless skin benefits. They’re hand made from 100% natural and organic ingredients like:
Sugar cane- hydrates, conditions and guards skin
Fair trade coffee- reduces appearance of cellulite
Green tea matcha- diminishes toxins
Activated charcoal- reduces inflammation
Himalayan pink salt- alleviates psoriasis
Organic Chamomile- helps treat acne
Jasmine essential oil- moisturizes and balances skin
Sweet almond oil- promotes blood circulation and tightens skin
Don’t these sound simply delicious? We tried three joeSCRUB products literally from head to toe (they’re all organic and non-abrasive) and we’re pleased to say, it’s our new shower essential. After using all three products, our skin felt clean, hydrated, baby soft and supple. And they smell divine, giving us that spa-like aromatic experience.
Here’s what we tried
Follow these steps to make the most of your exfoliation
Step into a warm to hot shower to open up your pores
Soak in your favourite bath gel/soap for a few minutes to soften the skin surface
Turn off the water while you apply your joeSCRUB coffee scrub in a circular motion (2-3 small handfuls will do)
Be sure to use a gentle pressure so you don’t damage or irritate the skin
Leave your joeSCRUB on for about 5-10 minutes to let the ingredients seep into your skin
Rinse with lukewarm water
Throw on your robe, have a tea and relax 🙂
Exfoliate before shaving for a closer shave or before applying self-tanning lotion for longer lasting colour.
