Body Scrub + Body Butter: The Ultimate Smooth Skin Duo
Keeping your skin soft, smooth and glowing doesn’t need to be complicated. What if we told you that you only need two simple steps? It’s true! To treat your entire epidermis, the two body care essentials you’re going to want in your toolkit are a good body scrub and great body butter to go with. To better understand why to let’s break down the benefits:
The perfect body care pair
Body scrubs work as a cleansing step in your skincare routine, removing dirt and debris as well as exfoliating away the buildup of dead cells on the surface that can leave your skin looking dull or dry. The result is smooth, polished skin that is well-prepped to receive additional moisture. That’s where body butter comes in.
Body butters are formulated with deeply nourishing botanical butters and oils, which work to infuse the skin with hydration and skin nutrition. The combination of exfoliation followed by the application of nutrient-rich ingredients in the butter, ensures that the product is readily absorbed, working quickly to replenish lost moisture and repair the tissue.
How To Use Body Scrubs:
To get the most benefit from your body scrub we suggest exfoliating about 2-3 times per week. Exfoliation can be very stimulating for the skin, encouraging better blood flow and circulation. If your skin is sensitive or you are new to using a scrub, we suggest exfoliating about 1-2 times per week and then increasing as needed.
How to Use Body Butters:
Unlike scrubs, body butters are gentle enough to be used every day. In fact, you can apply body butter morning and night. You can also re-apply the product throughout the day as needed if your skin feels dry. The nurturing ingredients in body butter even work well to soothe irritated skin and treat chronic inflammatory conditions like eczema.
With Love & Company’s Simple Protocol for Smoother Skin
For an easy pampering ritual that will leave the skin looking radiant, try this two-step treatment:
- Step One: Cleanse and Exfoliate
Following cleansing with your favorite soap or body wash, apply a small handful or two of the product to damp skin in the bath or shower. The scrub can also be left on the skin for a few minutes, to really let your skin absorb all of the benefits. Gently buff away the product to remove it and rinse with warm water.
- Step Two: Treat and Nourish:
Immediately following exfoliation is the best time to apply body butter. While the skin is still slightly damp, start with a generous scoop in the palm of your hand and let the butter warm to your skin. Pat the product onto fresh clean skin and massage it in gently until it is completely absorbed.
For happier, healthier and more glowing skin, we love performing this ritual at least once per week. We
also recommend treating the skin daily with our Body Butter or Healing Balm to maintain the best results.
