Organic birch extract BODY SCRUB is a natural scrub with the following properties:
• perfectly softens and smoothes the skin,
• helps to restore the natural pH,
• removes squamous cells,
• acts as an antiseptic
This scrub will make the skin soft and radiant, remove dead cells and allow new cells to breathe freely.
Biologically active substances of birch leaf-bud extract: birch tar, saponins, flavonoids, minerals, etc., not only nourish the skin, but also restore the skin’s natural pH. Skin cells are detoxified, and inflammatory processes are reduced due to the effect of birch tar and saponins. Saponins lubricate, soften and prevent the skin from drying out, and do not leave excess oil on the skin. The skin is cleansed by the hard sea salt particles in the scrub. After scrubbing procedures, it is not advisable to use soap or shower gels as they dry and dry the skin and remove the natural protective layer formed by the scrub.
Body scrub – a hygienic-cosmetic procedure. The skin breathes. During scrubbing, it receives more oxygen, can perform detoxification functions better. The feeling of freshness remains for a long time. The skin becomes soft and smooth even without the use of any oily creams.
The skin is made up of several layers of cells that are constantly renewed. Obsolete cells in the upper layer of the skin, called the epidermis, “die” and are removed when we wash or wipe with a towel. Unfortunately, not all of our skin itself is able to remove stale cells. As a result, the skin becomes pale or acquires a gray tint, and begins to age faster.
Deep cleansing procedures are used to remove aged skin cells, facilitate new cell renewal and delay skin aging. It is advisable to use body scrubs only once a week or two if the skin is dry, as frequent procedures can also remove healthy skin cells. Oily skin can be scrubbed more often – twice a week.
Deep cleansing promotes skin regeneration, prevents clogging of its sebaceous glands and the formation of blackheads. The skin becomes smoother and thinner. As her blood circulation improves, other cosmetics are better absorbed.
Exfoliation procedures are performed by beauty salons, but we can also do a deep cleansing of the skin at home. For cleansing procedures to be effective, it is advisable to warm up in the sauna beforehand or stand in a warm shower for at least a few minutes.
