The natural glow you desire can be yours if you know how to make a glow scrub. Your skin needs to be nourished from within to achieve this glowing appearance and many over the counter scrubs contain ingredients that do not do that. The use of chemicals on the skin can contribute to premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles and even sagging. If you have ever used a scrub that contained any type of chemical agent, then you know what I am talking about. Glow scrubs are designed to improve the texture, the color and the tone of the skin while creating a natural radiance.
Key Ingredients for Glow Scrubs
There are 6 key natural ingredients that we would highly recommend if you want your skin to glow. These ingredients include Shea Butter, Shea Oil, Olive Oil, Aloe Vera, Argan Oil and Honey. These ingredients work in conjunction to stimulate skin cell production to keep your skin looking younger. They provide antioxidants to help protect the skin from further damage as well as moisturize it.
Shea Oil is perfect for keeping moisture in your skin while providing an anti-inflammatory effect. Shea Butter has many uses. First, it is the perfect alternative to petroleum jelly or other similar products. It is not sticky, will not leave an oily residue behind and it won't clog your pores. Furthermore, it leaves your skin feeling soft and silky.
Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Argan Oil will benefit you greatly if you have dry skin. This is because these ingredient provides essential vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy skin. Many people suffer from dry skin because of their genetic makeup. Other things that can cause dryness are the weather, age, pollution, hormones, lack of hydration or a deficiency of certain vitamins. None of these natural ingredients will clog pores, instead they help give you beautiful glowing skin you desire. Furthermore, they have healing properties which will help you fight off aging spots, acne and pimples.
