Body scrubs are like that sumptuous side dish – not in the center yet not very far away from the limelight. Lush and energizing – they are a real treat that makes your skincare routine wholesome. Not to miss, many scrubs are made with luxuriant ingredients like brown sugar, coffee beans, honey, coconut oil, etc that wonderfully elevate your everyday bathing experience.
Not only do these physical exfoliators — especially those freshly made at home – feel & smell like heaven, they also slough away dull, dry skin to reveal a smoother décolletage and shining limbs. On a less sensual note, scrubs help keep ingrown hair at bay. In fact, exfoliating both before and after hair removal helps ingrown hair to push through the skin and grow out instead of curling under. To sum it up, regular exfoliation facilitates smooth and less painful waxing experience.

Luminous with lemon
There is hardly anything that a spoonful of lemon juice cannot fix. From lightening acne scars to boosting the production of collagen, it is a multi-tasker when it comes to good skin.
