A lot of skincare and beauty products focus on the face, and for good reason. But really, your whole body can use some pampering from time to time, and when choosing a body scrub it’s important to find one with powerful ingredients so you can actually make a difference to your skin.
Of course, not all of these products are created equal, and the key is in the ingredients that the scrubs are made from. To help you make the right choices, we asked the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics for their top picks for body scrubs.
5 Body Scrub Ingredients to Look for
#1 Coffee Bean Extract
The research is in — coffee has proven itself time and again as a powerful skincare ingredient for the role it plays in fighting aging, banishing cellulite and brightening the skin. And the Coffea Arabica (Organic Green Coffee) Seed Extract found in the Callyssee Cosmetics product line brings more antioxidants to the table than other coffee formulations.
#2 Avocado Oil
Rich and nourishing, avocado allows your skin to retain much-needed moisture for a healthy, youthful glow. Its found in Callyssee Cosmetics’ Cocoa Buffing Beans Coffee Scrub.
#3 Apricot Seed Powder
Along with fighting old, tired skin, a good body scrub should also help out with any imperfections — blackheads, dry patches and discolored area. Found in Callyssee Cosmetics’ Better Bean Face Coffee Scrub, Apricot Seed Powder can work wonders in this area.
#4 Citric Acid
Also found Callyssee Cosmetics’ Better Bean Face Coffee Scrub, citric acid is another great ingredient for a good scrub. Packed with powerful antioxidants, it’s a proven skin brightener.
#5 Organic Grapeseed Oil
Organic grapeseed oil is packed with healthy omega 6 fatty acids, which nourish the skin and promote cell regeneration, making it another great ingredient to have in your body scrub. It’s found in Callyssee Cosmetics’ Vanilla Bean Buffing Beans Coffee Scrub.
