Keratosis pilaris, sometimes called “chicken skin,” is a common skin condition that causes patches of rough-feeling bumps to appear on the skin. For those of us with dry skin, this could be a common occurrence.
Buff away such bumps with First Aid Beauty’s new KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA, a body scrub featuring both chemical and physical exfoliators for serious skin‐polishing power. Glycolic and Lactic Acids at a combined level of 10% help loosen skin’s top layer and decongest pores, while Pumice Buffing Beads whisk dead skin away. The fast‐acting scrub acts as a chemical peel and microdermabrasion treatment in one, exfoliating those pesky, rough keratosis pilaris (KP) patches to reveal radiant skin that feels exceptionally smooth.
Results? 95% reported it got rid of their dry, flaky skin. 92% felt skin was exceptionally smooth and touchable.
The ingredients of this body scrub include Pumice Buffing Beads that mechanically remove dead cells on skin's surface to reveal brighter-looking skin; Glycolic and Lactic Acids that exfoliate the skin to improve texture; Bisabolol helps soothe and calm skin; and Vitamin E which is rich in antioxidants, and helps stave off environmental aggressors.
For fabulous results, apply onto wet skin and gently massage with fingertips onto problem areas. Rinse and pat dry, then follow with a moisturiser. Use 1-2 times per week.
The classic bar soap has been around for centuries, however, it usually takes form in a simple cream or lacklustre brown. gentle mood challenges people to rethink the traditional bar soap with a series of soaps that are a treat for the eyes, nose and skin!
Not only do these colourful bar soaps make aesthetic bathroom accessories, they also smell divine with their natural fragrances from essential oils to uplift and invigorate; tapping into the power of aromatherapy. The formulations include natural and nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter to protect the skin and clays to draw out impurities — a contrasting difference in ingredients used in mass-produced soaps, often laced with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Parabens.
The typical shower routine transforms into a sensory experience as water transforms the solid block of soap into a soft, creamy lather. The bar soap acts as a vehicle to a therapeutic routine; an act of self-care that soothes the senses, especially in turbulent times like these.
It’s no surprise that bar soap wins its liquid competitor in terms of sustainability; it requires no preservatives and less energy to produce. The carbon footprint is lower as it’s lighter and more efficient to transport. It also lasts longer than liquid soap, meaning it needs to be replaced less frequently, thus less product is required to be made. It needs little packaging, just a humble box to store it. With each bar soap used, it’s one less plastic bottle that ends up in the landfill.
Introducing this series of bar soaps that are gentle on the skin and great for your mood. Available in four scents: Fresh, Energise, Calm and Cosy – a different scent and design to match whatever mood you’re in!
