Prep your skin for Summer: Face and Body Scrubs

Scrub into Summer

How nice to have had a bit of sunshine in Scotland for a change, I always feel more motivated and happy, hopefully it will last a little longer for us all.  Carrying on the summer skin theme from my last post I think it is time to fully embrace summer (however long it may last).  Put the tights, leggings and baggy jumpers away and get out those legs, arms and anything else that is in need of a little sunshine.  

Here are some of my 'go to' face and body scrubs, designed to buff away dead skin cells and leave your skin silky smooth and all set for those summer nights where jackets and umbrellas stay in the closet (that might be a bit optimistic but hey one can only hope).

Face Scrubs

St Ives Apricot Scrub

When I use a scrub I like to feel it actually doing what it is supposed to and buffing away all those dead skin cells and impurities on my face.  This face scrub does just that, it contains lots of natural ingredients, is oil free, hypoallergenic and is made available for different skin types. It smells really nice too.

Boots Botanics Scrub
I would recommend this for sensitive skin

This scrub was a random find that I stumbled upon one day in Boots and It is a little gem.  It is gently exfoliates and brightens your skin leaving it feeling thoroughly cleansed.  It does the job perfectly and is probably one of my favourite budget face scrubs.

Body Scrubs

St Ives Apricot Body Scrub 
I would recommend this for sensitive skin

Again this is a fantastic body scrub and does exactly what it says on the tub.  It is invigorating and leaves your skin feeling smooth and velvety.  It is great for people that don't like to be left with an oily residue that most scrubs can have.

Soap and Glory Flake Away Scrub

As described by Soap and Glory themselves this 'Super Strength salt Scrub' polishes your skin within an inch of its life.  It contains Shea butter and almond oil so is also lovely and moisturizing. 

These Scrubs are great for people who like to feel like their skin has been properly exfoliated.

Available in Boots and Superdrug

Happy scrubbing
