Why You Should Try A Salt + Sugar Scrub

At this moment, bacteria and residue are sitting on your skin.

When you sweat, when you come into contact with dirt and dust, even being exposed to different air- all these things introduce toxins to the surface of the skin. Water alone won’t wash away these layers of dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells. Using a gentle exfoliator can help to clear your skin, in addition to providing nourishing oils and minerals!

The Yellow Bird just released the salt + sugar scrub, and people have loved it! I’ve made DIY scrubs before, and it’s far easier to order this one ready-made. It smells amazing, comes in a practical (and cute) container and it’s available from Amazon Prime! This scrub is formulated to work with many different skin types.

Here’s what gives it such amazing results: they’ve used organic ingredients that all mix together into the perfect skin cocktail (not quite, but you’ll still love it!). Activated charcoal, fair trade sugar, and sea salt all come together to gently exfoliate and cleanse. Willow bark reduces inflammation and redness, calming your skin. Finally, the combination of Kukui nut oil, almond oil, and grapeseed oil smooths and moisturizes, leaving your skin glowing.

A few quick tips for using the scrub:
Shake the container before you open it! This is important as it keeps everything mixed.
  • Get your skin wet first.
  • Start with a small pinch- a little goes a long way!
  • Massage the scrub in a circular motion.
  • I think it’s easiest to use in the shower and the bath works well too!
  • Don’t exfoliate more than 3 times a week- other than that, listen to your skin! People with sensitive skin will probably need to exfoliate only 1 or maybe 2 times a week.
Regular exfoliation also makes you look younger! When dead skin cells are removed, the new skin cells are revealed. Your skin stays smooth and clean and continues in a healthy growth cycle.

Minimize pores, moisturize the surface, and reduce pores- you can improve so many aspects of your skin’s health by using an exfoliating scrub! All of the ingredients in this scrub are free of chemicals and other synthetic irritants. Use it on the face as well as the rest of the body! It’s a fantastic choice for those with wrinkles, acne or blackheads, or dull, dry skin. Give it a try!
