Chai Body Scrub

Exfoliation can do wonders for your skin and this chai scrub is amazing! It’s also super easy (and quick) to make and is full of ingredients that you will probably already have in the kitchen! Exfoliation helps to maintain clear, soft skin. This is because our skin cells are regenerating all the time with the dead ones falling away. But sometimes the dead cells cling on and this can lead to blocked pores and and pimples as well as a feeling of rough skin.

Sugar is one of the best natural exfoliants as it it much gentler on the skin than salt or other gritty things used in exfoliators. It is also a natural humectant which means it draws moisture in and contains glycolic acid which encourages cell turnover, generating fresh skin. However, while you should exfoliate regularly to maintain soft, clear skin, you shouldn’t exfoliate more than 2 – 3 times a week as this can lead to damaging healthy skin cells.Read More »
