Our Soursop Scrub is a great choice to help prevent breakouts because of its cooling and soothing properties. The vitamins in soursop leaves are excellent for healing sores, and refreshing mint leaves help reduce redness and itchiness. Mint also contains salicylic acid, which helps get rid of dead skin that can clog pores and cause break.
Another (indulgent) way to help relieve acne is with our Chocolate Scrub. This product contains honey, which is naturally antibacterial. Combined with jojoba oil, which dissolves sebum, and tea tree oil, which also has anti-fungal properties, your skin will stay squeaky clean and won’t give dirt a chance to cause any problems.
Body Scrub For Acne
Relieving the symptoms of acne is a challenge most, if not all of us face in our lifetime. The good news is that mother nature has a lot of wonderful ingredients that can help keep breakouts to a minimum and reduce the chance of scarring. Because we know that acne is one of the most common skin ailments around, we wanted to make sure our scrubs contained the best essential oils and nutrients to help keep your skin clean and breakout free.
Body Scrub Helps Prevent Breakouts that Lead to Acne
What causes acne? It may be brought on by diet, certain medications, hormonal changes, or stress. The four key factors are bacteria, dead skin cells, clogged pores, and excessive oil production. Contrary to popular belief, greasy foods don’t cause acne, but a healthy, balanced diet keeps the skin well-nourished. What you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body. Harsh chemicals, found in many commercial skin and body products, might make your acne worse. SimplyScrub body scrubs to the rescue!
Soursop might be a strange name, but it’s a potent plant. Soursop leaves are chock-full of vitamins A, B and C, and these are essential vitamins for skin health. Soursop leaves are naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. In our Soursop Scrub, the brown sugar adds a bit of “gentle abrasion” for highly effective exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, and brown sugar is also moisturizing. Joining in the gentle exfoliation — that is, the removal of old, dead skin cells from the skin’s surface — is dead sea mineral salt. This is a unique substance that melts slightly upon application, allowing its beneficial minerals to seep into the skin and provide important nourishment. Dead sea salt also helps to invigorate while reducing stress. Mint leaves calm and sooth irritated skin, while a host of rich oils moisturize and support new skin growth.
Our all-natural Chocolate Body Scrub is delicious, but it’s not meant to be eaten! Instead, the cocoa butter provides important antioxidants to fight free radicals that can cause damage to skin cells. It is also anti-aging and removes scars from the skin, while reducing inflammation. The cacao nibs (roasted pieces of cacao beans) act as an exfoliant to gently remove dead skin cells. Creating a healthy environment for the skin is the best way to get rid of acne and keep it away. Our chocolate scrub accomplishes this with a delectable blend of moisturizing and soothing cocoa butter, shea butter, sweet almond oil and jojoba oil. Sweet almond oil helps to gently remove debris from deep within your skin’s pores. It may even keep acne from returning, due to its vitamin A content.
