Why You Don't Need a Face Scrub

Scrub out the Face Scrub

You've been told for so long that you need a face scrub to exfoliate your skin. But here's the thing: you don't need a scrub at all. And, in some cases, they can cause more harm than good. The ingredients used in many face scrubs have rough, jagged edges used to exfoliate the skin. But they can be so abrasive that they leave skin irritated, red and inflamed. 

Let's not forget that we are Nature. Our skin undergoes natural exfoliation by skin cell renewal and replacement around every 28 days. So it's rarely necessary to further accelerate this process by using scrubs or even peels.

Here's how to cleanse your skin every week in a way that supports your skin, without the need for abrasive face scrubs.

Use the Organic Muslin Cloth with the Cleansing Balm

The French Green Clay in the Green Clay Cleansing Balm is particularly effective at drawing out impurities. When used alongside the Organic Muslin Facial Cloth, your skin benefits from a double action, gentle exfoliation. The weave of the Muslin gently removes dead skin cells, make-up, daily impurities and improves circulation. And the Cleansing Balm has purifying and gently exfoliating properties too.

Enjoy a weekly antioxidant-rich Face Mask

Prevent the build up of impurities by using our Green Clay Face Mask once a week. Mix with a splash of water or 2-3 tsps of raw, organic honey until a paste forms. Apply for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water, removing any excess with the Muslin Cloth. The exceptionally high levels of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories restore skin by removing impurities and dead skin cells that can clog pores and contribute towards blemishes. The Face Mask is well suited for sensitive, rosacea and acne-prone skins.

Support cleansed skin with the Organic Facial Oil

When using the Cleansing Balm and Face Mask on a regular basis as part of your skincare ritual, you're effectively cleansing your skin without the need for any abrasive face scrubs. The benefit is you create the perfectly smooth canvas for the organic, plant-based ingredients in the Organic Facial Oil (including organic apricot oil, organic sweet almond oil and organic evening primrose oil) to be absorbed by the deeper layers of the skin, promoting a healthy, radiant glow.
