What the heck is a body scrub and why do I need it?

June 27, 2013 1 min read

An exfoliant is a personal care product that is made up of irregular textures used to remove dead cells (stratum corneum) from the surface of the skin. Dead cells prevent moisturizers from penetrating and soothing dry skin. Dirt and dead cells also clog pours causing flare ups of skin irritations such as acne. The benefits of exfoliating are really seen while shaving. By removing dirt and   dry cells you expose the hair follicle resulting in a better shave.

 
Salt N Sea Scrub

 You should only exfoliate a couple a times of week but because your feet are harder to exfoliate than your body, you can use a scrub on them 3 to 4 times a week or more depending on your results.

 

Our Salt N Sea Body scrub is all natural and great for the whole body. Containing Nova Scotia Sea Kelp and Seabuckthorn this treat cleanses you of dead cells but leaves amazing moisturizing oils and antioxidants behind. Follow up with our Nova Scotia Lotion to reduce signs of aging and damage from the environment.

I just bought the Salt N’ Sea Scrub Body Scrub at a Zehrs store in the Natural Valu Dept. and used it on my face. My face was sooooo soft after.

I love the Salt N Sea Scrub which I use on my face weekly. It has a nice light creamy texture with just a hint of fragrance from the essential oils that leaves my skin soft, smooth and moisturizing. And I like the fact that it is 100% natural and I was able to purchase this at the local grocery store in the health section. Great product and I will definitely keep buying this for the long run. ;-)

I just found your wonderful products in the health food section at Loblaws and being a maritimer from Nova Scotia, I just had to try your stuff out!! Well I’m totally hooked…absolutely love the salt scrub, the soaps and the lotion(my big tough hubby will even use your lotion cause he says it doesn’t burn his sore chapped skin). Thanks for coming up with a line that appeals to all things maritime and I look forward to any other new products that you might come up with like say: natural laundry soap, face creams, hair care products etc. Warmest Regards, Tess, a very satisfied customer :)

This summer is going to be different in how we interact, where we go, and also in the principles for keeping our skin healthy. Apart from the obvious (excessive hand washing), we are also dealing with changing climates and a challenging summer vacation schedule that’s forcing some of us to get outside in our own back yards (not so terrible). The outdoor environment can be challenging to navigate in terms of keeping our skin healthy, vibrant, and these challenges can be harder to overcome (and expensive) for those with senstitivities.

Nature typically gives back to us, and offers many natural remedies for our skin, we just need to learn how to use them.Let’s break it down and cover simple ways to help keep your skin looking / feeling healthy during summer without using overpriced, overcomplicated solutions:

5 Best Skincare Gifts for Dad 2020 - How to Repair Dry Hands

This year more than ever, Dad’s hands are taking abuse from over cleansing and drying-out from sanitizing. Although Dads are usually the ones who need to be paying extra care to their hands, they are often times still neglected. 

The key to healthy skin is to find a routine and products that are simple and work, and that shouldn’t be at the expense of their health by adding in chemical ingredients they don’t need. Simple, natural, effective. Rinse and repeat.
