My newest skin care obsession: this scrub! Not only does this stuff smell amazing, it leaves the skin soft, supple, and refreshed. Gentle enough for daily use and effective on the body as well, this is a delight to use in the morning or at night. I use it nightly after I remove my makeup and cleanse, and I have to say it does what it says it will. I haven’t experienced any breakouts or irritation, and my complexion is overall more even in tone and texture.
Strawberries contain alpha hydroxy acids, salicylic and ellagic acid, as well as Vitamin C. Alpha hydroxy acids eliminate dead skin cells and help reverse signs of aging, while salicylic and ellagic acids tighten pores, reduce blemishes and help lighten hyperpigmentation over time. Vitamin C helps boost collagen production and give the skin an overall brighter appearance. Many different skin types can benefit from the cocktail of acids and finely ground almonds Peter Thomas Roth used in this scrub.
You should be exfoliating at least twice a week to keep your skin healthy and maintain a youthful “glow.” Not only will you be getting rid of dull skin cells, but your other skin care products will penetrate better on freshly exfoliated skin. The benefits of exfoliation are numerous and this scrub contains both physical and chemical exfoliation properties. To get your skin glowing for spring, give this stuff a try.
