For years I have agonizing about what my skin is missing or what it needs the most. I have met a couple women who are riddled with false information and believe body and sugar scrubs are bad for their skin. What do you believe? We know that exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and increase circulation but, are there any real benefits to that?
Yes, no matter your skin type there are several benefits that will make you want to start exfoliating right away:
- Slows Down The Aging Process
- Minimizes the appearance of large pores
- Reduces the appearance of dark spots or age spots
- Soothes Itchiness and Acne
- Helps You Keep a Tan Longer
- Allows absorption of other products into your skin like moisturizers
And there are more. I recently went exploring for an all natural sugar scrub that could give me all these skin benefits before I hit the beach for the summer. After some research, I decided to try a Canadian product, Cara Radiance By Nature’s Floralissima Sugar Scrub and so my exfoliating adventures began.
Looking for a great Sugar Scrub to start exfoliating with?
The packaging is beautiful! It comes in a big plastic tub with a screw top so that you can get your hand in there to scoop out product.
Since this sugar scrub is made with all natural ingredients, the oils of the Sugar Scrub sat at the top when opened, so be careful not to spill it when you first open it. Some of the ingredients used in this product are coconut oil, avocado oil, and grapefruit seed extract.
I also love that Cara Radiance By Nature is a Canadian because I am always looking to support local, natural based products when I can.
I mixed the sugar scrub with my fingers before applying. The price is also great for an all natural beauty product, at $27 for 580 grams you definitely get your money’s worth.
Applying & Results
You can use this scrub in the shower or bath by scooping a small amount of scrub onto your palm and then massage it into your skin in small circles while it is wet. After that, you rinse it off with water. Pretty simple right?
Now, I used this product in the shower, I scrubbed my legs, arms, and as much as the rest of my body as I could. The recommended usage is 1-2 times a week which is pretty low key and easy to keep up with. While scrubbing I did notice my skin, in turn, feel way softer and more hydrated immediately, it also smells so floral and leaves a beautiful lingering smell on my skin that is very pretty.
After a few weeks of use, I have noticed a couple things about my skin change. My arms aren’t as dry and feel hydrated to the touch for days after use. I also noticed that after scrubbing my legs for a couple weeks I can get a closer shave than ever which made my legs feel silky smooth.
Overall, my body feels hydrated and my skin looks great with no blemishes or irritations. This powerful but gentle scrub made my skin feel healthier than ever after a long and dry winter. It gives my skin a glowing quality and has prepped me to start tanning this spring!
I recommend this product to anyone looking to start their exfoliation journey, there are way too many benefits for your skin to not consider it. Stop and Scrub everyone!
