Exfoliation is key to maintaining a healthy skin and bright complexion. Our skin sheds thousands of cells every day, and if not removed from the surface of the skin, they can build up, leading to clogged pores (hello, blackheads and pimples!) as well as an uneven texture and dull complexion.
Regular exfoliation ensures dead cells on the surface of the skin are sloughed off, revealing a brighter, healthier complexion that’s glowing from within. When choosing a facial exfoliator, it’s important to take your skin type into consideration. Tree Hut recently launched a collection of Sugar Face Scrubs, each one specially designed for a particular skin type or concern.
Here’s how to find the perfect facial scrub based on your skin concerns:
For brighter skin
If your skin is dull, ashy or you have an uneven skin tone, you should be using brightening skincare products to enhance your natural glow and achieve a more even skin tone. Key ingredients to look for are vitamin C and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids). Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that brightens skin and helps fade dark marks, while AHAs are acids that effectively exfoliate skin, improve skin texture and help fade pigmentation.
Tree Hut Brightening Sugar Face Scrub is designed to refresh and brighten up a dull shower routine (and complexion!). Vibrant notes of yuzu and lemon have an invigorating effect to enhance your shower experience.
This scrub contains papaya extract (filled with AHAs to help minimise signs of ageing), pineapple enzymes (filled with vitamin C to brighten and exfoliate), alpha hydroxy acids (to remove skin cell build-up and revitalise) and sugar – the star of the show – a natural exfoliant that deep cleans pores to remove dead skin and impurities.
For hydrated skin
Dehydrated skin lacks water. When skin is dehydrated, it may appear dull, have dry patches, feel less elastic and even break out – that’s because our skin naturally produces more sebum (oil) to make up for the lack of water, which in turn clogs pores and may lead to blemishes and blackheads. Use products containing hydrating ingredients as well as a good quality humectant to lock moisture in.
Tree Hut Hydrating Sugar Face Scrub is designed to hydrate skin while leaving it smooth and glowing. Its refreshing watermelon and cactus water formulation leaves skin feeling invigorated and radiant.
This scrub contains watermelon (a natural humectant that helps prevent moisture loss and it provides gentle, yet effective, exfoliation), cactus water (filled with electrolytes and antioxidants to help promote hydration), alpha hydroxy acids (to remove skin cell build-up and revitalise) and sugar – the star of the show – a natural exfoliant that deep cleans pores to remove dead skin and impurities.
For skin that needs some TLC
Just like our bodies, our skin can get tired. Stress, pollution and an unhealthy diet or lifestyle can leave skin looking dull and fatigued. If your skin is in need of a boost, try a renewing ingredient like vitamin A (which is known to aid skin cell turnover and revitalise the complexion) and vitamin B (which helps minimise the signs of ageing).
Tree Hut Nourishing Sugar Face Scrub is designed to nourish, smooth and hydrate tired-looking skin to reveal a refreshed and more radiant complexion.
This scrub contains banana (known for its high concentration of vitamin A and ability to restore moisture to dehydrated skin), oats (known to calm and soothe skin, and are also high in B-vitamins essential for promoting healthy skin), alpha hydroxy acids (to remove skin cell build-up and revitalise) and sugar – the star of the show – a natural exfoliant that deep cleans pores to remove dead skin and impurities.
For blemish-prone skin
If your skin is prone to breakouts or blackheads, regular exfoliation may play a key part in maintaining a clearer complexion. Not only will it help prevent clogged pores, but it also allows your active ingredients to better penetrate the skin. Look out for detoxifying ingredients that help deep clean pores.
Tree Hut Purifying Sugar Face Scrub is designed to detox, hydrate and smooth tired-looking skin to reveal a refreshed, radiant complexion.
This scrub contains blueberry (filled with antioxidants, vitamin C & E to naturally help remove dead surface cells and renew), turmeric (which helps to calm, detoxify and tone problematic skin), alpha hydroxy acids (to remove skin cell build-up and revitalise) and sugar – the star of the show – a natural exfoliant that deep cleans pores to remove dead skin and impurities.
