Everything You Need to Know About Exfoliation

When it comes to cultivating gorgeous skin, few would argue that proper exfoliation is key. While a great scrub can help your complexion glow, the wrong technique — or product — can do more harm than good. Exfoliation involves the vigorous removal of dead skin cells while also avoiding damaging the skin. Further, exfoliation can help you get the most glowing result from your self-tanner, so perfecting your skin scrubbing routine is a good way to go.

Exfoliation: What You Need To Know

Choosing a healthy scrub for your skin is no small matter. Over-exfoliating can leave your skin irritated and more prone to breakouts and rashes. However, gentle abrasion via a high-quality scrub can reveal your skin’s hidden beauty and youthfulness. Our new body polishes are the perfect addition to your skin self-care practice. Mineral-rich sea salt helps slough away dead skin while nourishing oils, such as jojoba, leave your complexion deeply soothed and hydrated.

Additionally, our carefully selected essential oils not only provide healing for the skin, but they also balance and clarify your mind. Our holistic treatments are designed to address your health and beauty in both body and mind. And, as always, our scrubs are entirely non-GMO, SLS, Paraben, and dye-free, BPA free, phthalate-free, gluten-free, vegan, and cruelty-free. 

Dry Brushing Is Your Skin’s BFF

If you’ve never tried it, you owe it to yourself to start dry brushing. Dry brushing is what it sounds like — you brush your dry skin before bathing or showering in upward strokes towards the heart. You can check out how to dry brush here. The practice will leave you feeling deeply invigorated and vital while giving your skin a rosy glow. Dry brushing is one of the easiest and cheapest things you can do for amazing skin, and all it takes is a few minutes a day. Pursoma’s Detox Beauty Body Brush is made from all-natural, sustainable jute fiber, while most brushes are made from coconut or sisal.

We’ve selected jute for our brush because it's soft enough to protect your complexion, but still hard enough to drain the lymph and polish your skin. All of our dry brushes are entirely handmade and are ethically harvested and non-GMO. Our brushes contain no sodium lauryl sulfate, dyes, or parabens, and are vegan and cruelty-free.

How To Scrub Pursoma-Style

Our scrubs are designed for maximum enjoyment and ease of use. Simply blend the contents of your favorite Pursoma Body Polish oil sachet into the scrub mixture. Combine well. Scrub your dry skin from head-to-toe, beginning at your shoulders, and working your way down to your feet. Massage in circular motions. Make sure to use the entire contents of the package for the best results. Now, it’s time to hydrate. Add small amounts of water to your scrub and keep massaging in small circles as you go. Finally, rinse your body without soap and gently towel dry. Emerge from your scrub ritual feeling refreshed and deeply calm.

A Note About Personal Time

We always recommend that you carve out deliberate space in your day for self-care. Silencing your devices, focusing on your breath, and taking time away from tech and daily stress is so important for your health. Our bath treatments and scrubs are about way more than beauty (though they will amplify yours): they’re about nurturing your physical and mental health via meditation and detoxification, one bath soak, and scrub at a time.
