You have most probably heard the term ‘treat your body as your temple’ a thousand times, but are you appropriately looking after your body as well as it is looking after you? One of the most amazing things your body does is it sends you signs saying “I need some help!” For instance, if your gut is out of balance, you may suffer from skin issues such as acne. Amazing! One of our top tips for beautiful skin and treating your body as your temple is to exfoliate.
Exfoliate Your Body
Your skin needs to be exfoliated regularly because your skin cell turnover slows down as you age and your production of collagen, which is a protein essential for maintaining the firmness and elasticity of your skin decreases with age. The good news is that exfoliating can slow this process down by stimulating your cell turnover and give you smooth, radiant skin. Exfoliating away dead skin cells helps eliminate dullness, roughness and dryness of your skin which helps reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
Exfoliating away your old skin cells also helps your skin absorb all the nourishing goodness of your skincare products. Your cleansers, moisturisers and hydrating serums will be able to penetrate more deeply and do their job more effectively if your skin exfoliated.
Avoid exfoliating scrubs which have coarse particles as these can damage your skin’s barrier. Look for scrubs with smooth, round granules such as our Spirulina Salt Scrub.
How Spirulina Salt Scrub Treats Your Body
Botani’s Spirulina Salt Scrub is a luxuriously creamy formula with hydrating olive squalene so your skin will be exfoliated and feeling silky smooth. Our scrub contains sea salt and detoxifying, purifying and exfoliating spirulina to gently remove dry, scaly skin, unclogging pores and stimulate your blood circulation. Our scrub also contains Australian Lemon Myrtle to help with any acne, ingrown hairs and dry skin on your body. Treat your body as your temple once or twice a week with Spirulina Salt Scrub. It is also beneficial to prepare your skin before applying fake tanning lotions, to solve dry, lifeless, scaly skin and as a treatment for dry feet.
Spirulina For Your Skin
The healing power of spirulina is in the detoxifying and antioxidant properties of phycocyanin, which defends against free radical damage and create an even skin tone. Spirulina also balances your skin’s pH and helps ease itchy skin.
Any skin issues such as body acne, exfoliating removes cell buildup, unclog your pores and prevent any breakouts. Be aware that excessive exfoliation may cause further breakouts. Exfoliate gently and don’t overdo it. We suggest gently exfoliating once or twice a week. If you’re using a dry brush, use soft, natural bristles and ensure you don’t brush too hard.
Spirulina In Your Diet
Adding spirulina to your diet is highly effective for gut health, helps combat acne from the inside and assists with anti-ageing due to its high antioxidant content. Spirulina also helps lower inflammation and assist with other skin and health conditions.
Relax With Sea Salt
Sea salt contains high concentrations of magnesium and calcium to relax your muscles, increase circulation, and reduce fluid retention. Sea salt is one of the many natural remedies for eczema and other skin condition such as acne, psoriasis and dermatitis. On top of that, it hydrates skin, improves skin barrier function, and visibly reduces local inflammation.
