There’s a lot that goes into achieving good skin. From visiting countless dermats to playing trial and error with skin care products hoping that something would miraculously work on your skin. But what happens when all these efforts are in vain because your skin still continues to look lackluster? One of the reasons could be that you haven’t been using a face scrub for your skin aka an exfoliant that will act as the right face cleanser for your skin. Here is a quick guide on how to get rid of dull skin using a scrub…

As we said, the best route to fighting lackluster skin is by embracing a face scrub in the form of St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub. This one’s become our go-to exfoliator ever since we first tried it because of its hypo-allergenic formula and its ability to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin. It especially works for acne-prone skin because it can control sebum or pore buildup that leads to pimples. Plus, it is paraben free!

The magic of apricot and walnuts

The St. Ives Scrub contains two essential ingredients that give you glowing skin. The first ingredient, apricot, heals, soothes, protects and energises your skin thanks to its rich vitamin A content and antioxidant compounds. The other ingredient, walnut shell, is rich in vitamin B and E, and does a thorough job of moisturising your skin.

It goes without saying then that when you make the St. Ives squeeze-scrub-glow routine your skincare essential, you’ll be left with healthy skin and that natural blush you’ve always yearned for.


Why your skin needs exfoliation

Do you often look in the mirror only to constantly ask yourself why your skin looks so dull? The sun, pollution and unhealthy food choices often take away the radiance from the skin. Under worse conditions, your skin suffers from acne, blackheads, the works.

Another time your skin needs a good scrub is during a manicure and pedicure. This is because one of the most important steps during a mani-pedi is removal of dead skin so your hands and feet are clean and bacteria-free.

In addition, if you’ve been battling dry patches on your body, especially around your elbows, the right exfoliant could be the obvious solution. Dry patches are often a result of dehydrated skin and dead cell buildup and a good scrub will slowly but surely exfoliate your skin leaving it deeply moisturised.

For all of the above concerns, you must rely on an exfoliant that’s pure and natural. An exfoliant like the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is made with 100% natural exfoliants that’ll heal acne, remove dead skin and fight other impurities. Plus, it’s soothing and refreshing on your skin!
