It’s summer! The sun is burning, everyday life is running a little slower and we started drinking our coffee with ice cubes. And don’t you always feel a bit of longing during these warmer months? This very specific mixture of wanderlust, nostalgia, heart whirlwinds and sunscreen makes summer complete in my eyes. Also, the fact that it’s ok to have ice cream for breakfast.
Besides, skin is shown! Even if you don’t belong to those who walk along the Limmat in swimming trunks, most of us dress in less – or at least less layers. The perfect time to make body care a priority again.
The skin renewal process
The skin is not only our largest and most visible organ, it’s also very busy. It’s in a constant process of renewal and constantly producing new cells to replace the old ones. This usually takes a month.
So if you’re still looking for reasons why our skin should be given some extra love – voilà!
Body scrubs for smooth summer skin
In order to support the skin renewal process and to rub away dead skin cells, mechanical peelings like our SHEA YEAH Body scrubs are great. They not only stimulate the natural desquamation but also the blood circulation and leave skin velvety soft and glowing from inside. Regular peels are suitable for all skintypes, unless it’s damaged or ultra sensitive! They are especially good for skin that is prone to hornification and also as part of hair removal routines to prevent ingrown hairs.
The formulation with shea butter and cold-pressed oils is perfect for lovers of efficient products: this not only gives a beautifully smooth consistency, but also nourishes the skin during the peel, so that you don’t necessarily have to moisturise afterwords. Summer skin in an instant!
Justice – Verveine and shea butter
Our Justice Body scrub is the perfect choice for those who like herbal and fresh scents. The essential oils of verveine have an invigorating effect and create a good mood. For me, this is the ideal start to a summer’s day.
Our Body scrubs are best used directly in the shower. Ideally, as a last step after washing, spread a handful on the body, rub it in and finally wash it off. A little caution is advisable here, because the shower floor can become slippery due to the shea butter and cold-pressed oils contained! Then gently dab dry and enjoy the velvety skin.
Also perfectly suitable as a foot peel for your at-home pedicure!
All my love,
