The answer to soft, smooth skin is nothing but exfoliation. Exfoliating regularly not only helps you get rid of dead skin cells but also helps you achieve a brighter complexion, fewer breakouts and blackheads, and an even skin tone.

Dead skin tends to form a barrier that interferes with absorption. That’s where exfoliation comes in! It helps you get more mileage out of your topical products, thereby leading to more hydrated and smoother skin, as well as fewer signs of ageing. Here’s one natural exfoliant that works like magic for your skin. We’re talking about Apricot! Yes, you’ll be surprised to know that your skin loves apricot just as much as you do. Read on to know all about the benefits of apricots for skin...

Magical moisturising properties

Infused with moisturising properties, this natural exfoliant helps keep your skin cells hydrated and prevents any drying effects associated with exfoliation. All you need to do is simply smooth a small amount of the apricot scrub onto clean, dry skin using dry fingers. Next, gently massage the scrub over your face with wet fingers. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry. Exfoliating thrice a week will leave you with healthier-looking skin and a smoother surface.

Reduces wrinkles

Did you know? Apricot kernels promote new skin growth by helping you get rid of the old, dead cells sitting on the surface. Therefore, scrubs that are formulated with apricot kernels are ideal for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Once the skin is rid of the damaged surface cells, it will automatically glow.

Made with 100 percent natural exfoliants, the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub gives all the reasons to inculcate exfoliation in your regular skin care routine. Not only do apricots have a healthy amount of vitamin A which has long been associated with healthier and smoother skin, but also the antioxidants in apricots protect the skin from the effects of free radicals, which can lead to skin damage and signs of premature aging.
