Exfoliants come in all types and textures, from cleansers and scrubs to peels and spa treatments. Our all-time favourite is the powder scrub. Passed down from generations to generations to brighten, smooth and hydrate skin, these well-curated powders gently remove impurities and exfoliate the skin for a glowing complexion. But how do you make it? Just add water.
They're Super Gentle
When mixed with water, these well-curated ingredients turn into a luxurious paste that removes impurities and smooths the skin. Powder exfoliants are incredibly gentle. In addition, ingredients like Rice also include naturally AHAs and BHAs. These provide additional exfoliation by dissolving dead skin cells leaving you with a silky smooth complexion.
When it comes to powder exfoliants, the power is in your hands...literally. The amount of liquid you add defines the strength of the scrub. You can control the scrub according to your skin needs depending on the season or your skin type. You can also change the liquid according to your skin type! Use aloe vera for inflamed skin, honey for dry skin, yogurt for oily skin, water for the standard.
They last so much longer shelf-life wise. Since there is no water included, there are also no preservatives added! Bacteria definitely has a much harder time growing in dry environments. Also, no double dipping! Bonus is that they are travel-friendly and can be slipped into your carry-on with zero fuss from airport security.
