According to Ayurveda, it is important to exfoliate your skin, at least once a week. Your skin sheds dead cells through the skin, and exfoliation makes sure these cells are removed from the layer of the skin. Over exposure to pollution, consumption of unhealthy food and a sedentary lifestyle plagues the current generation with numerous skin-related woes. No wonder the ancient science of Ayurveda strongly emphasises the use of body scrubs and exfoliators to remove dry and dead skin cells, so that the clearer skin underneath is revealed. Also, if you let dead skin cells accumulate, it might lead to blackheads, acne and other skin issues. But chemical scrubs can be detrimental for your skin with their harsh scrubbing action and they can also strip your skin of its natural oils and moisture. Green Gram, powdered herbs and nuts, Orange peel powder and Oatmeal are excellent natural exfoliators for the skin. Kama Ayurveda brings you natural body scrubs, exfoliators and cleansers that are gentle on your skin and can be used daily. These products are vegetarian, feature balanced compositions and are manufactured under stringent quality control conditions
Exfoliation is nothing but a deep-cleansing technique that stimulates the skin and removes toxins along with dead cells. But the effect of this process is not just skin-deep; it helps clear the mind from anxiety and stress and energizes in seconds. For instance, the Natural Vetiver & Sisal Loofah by Kama Ayurveda is a natural body scrub for dry skin, and has a cooling effect that is effective on heat rashes. This coarse yet gentle loofah relives acne, stimulates blood circulation, and has an earthy scent that is relaxing for the mind as well. Dry body brushing with this loofah can also improve your immune system and is most helpful before a shower or bath. Take care so that you don’t brush on irritated skin though. You can also add a little body wash to the wet loofah and rub on your body in circular motions.
Regular exfoliation with gentle body scrubs by Kama Ayurveda can also lessen facial hair growth, appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, attack pigmentation or dark spots, and brighten complexion. You should ideally focus more on rough spots like the soles of the feet, the knees as well as the elbows.
