spring forward into spring cleaning with exfoliation!

The month of March marks the beginning of spring – spring forward into spring cleaning! You may think of spring cleaning as a time to organize your house, but what about giving your skin some extra love and attention? Physical exfoliation offers a great way to refresh the skin’s surface and today I’d like to share some information on our best selling walnut complexion scrub.

Why Exfoliate?

Your skin continuously undergoes a natural renewal process. When we’re young, it takes approximately 25 – 28 days for our skin to completely renew itself. As we age, this renewal process slows down. The key to younger looking skin is to keep that renewal process in motion. This is where exfoliation comes in!  Exfoliation oxygenates, brightens and refines the skin by revving up the skin’s metabolism, sloughing off excess dead skin, and ultimately helping to maintain cell turnover as you age.

Why Walnuts?

Walnuts are loaded with Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids for skin health and luminosity. They’re also small and dense enough to dislodge stubborn sebum (oil) build up which can clog our pores and in turn, cause black and white head pimples.

Why Walnut Scrub?

When you use a physical exfoliant like the walnut complexion scrub, it’s important to have ample hydration between your palms to easily blend and smoothly glide the granular walnuts across your face, achieving a foaming action.

The most common mistake made when using a physical exfoliant is scrubbing too vigorously – you don’t want to over treat or over sensitize your skin. It’s important to recognize that by gently slipping the product across your face in upward circular motions, you’re stimulating the granular walnuts to do the work for you, as it was designed.

Special Tips:

When skin is severely erupted with cystic / inflamed pimples, you’ll want to refrain from physical exfoliation. The skin needs to calm, heal and rebuild immunities prior to treating with anything that can seem abrasive. If your skin tends to be more sensitive, try a more mild scrub like our sugar glow face scrub to achieve beautiful glowing skin.

Just like we go to the dentist 2X per year for a deep cleaning, it’s important to take care of your face with a special exfoliation treatment 2-3X per week. This upcoming month, you can try our 1oz walnut scrub as our gift to you with any purchase of $50+ when you enter the promo code: CLEAN. So, what are you waiting for? Jump on the exfoliation band wagon and get your complexion ready for spring!
