Scrub Your Way To Summer Skin

Delhicious black tea body scrub

You might be ready for summer, but how about your skin? Unveiling after months undercover can be a bit daunting, to say the least.

One thing you can do is to start a proper skin maintenance routine, and by that I mean have a good scrub. I love a good body scrub product and it’s no secret that I exfoliate all year round. However, when summer comes, it’s time to step it up a notch and get your skin prepped ready for those days when you just want, or need to wear less.

For most of us, super smooth skin doesn’t happen by itself, nor is it an overnight occurrence but it’s not too late to start. Sloughing off all those nasty dead skin cells and rough pimply bits we seem to acquire throughout the winter months leaves us glowing. For this, you’ll need a rather dense formula to your exfoliator, in other words – lots of particles. If you’re a self-tan addict (like me), you’ll need your skin in tip-top tanning condition for a better and longer-lasting result from your chosen tanning products.

“The Delhicious idea came about when husband and wife team Zak and Zara were expecting their first baby in 2016. After battling with skin changes, stretch marks and extremely dry skin. Zara wanted an all-natural product which would help”

With a beauty regime heavily influenced by her cultural roots, Zara dug out her ancestry recipe book and came up with her own skincare solution – an all-natural Black Tea body scrub”

Of course, there is any number of flavoursome scrubs available, but not all are the same. I avoid microbeads, or those with ‘more liquid than particles’, and prefer to choose a natural option these days. Aside from the gorgeous ingredients, you’ll get the added benefit of the wonderful aromas which you might expect. Recently, I tried an organic coffee scrub, but today I’m sharing my thoughts on an aromatic Black Tea body scrub.

Introducing the UK’s first Black Tea Scrub

I won’t lie, using this caffeine-based scrub is a messy business, but its uplifting scent compensates somewhat and awakens the senses. With an array of gorgeous natural ingredients including Himalayan pink salt, sweet almond oil and other skin-loving essential oils, it’s definitely pleasurable to use. Plus, if you take your tea with brown sugar – you’ll find plenty of that inside too. For me, the scent Is predominantly citrus, but the Assam tea does come through –  I liken it to a lemon tea and there’s plenty in the pouch to keep you going.

The texture is a little harder and more granular than others I’ve tried, so I would advise to proceed with caution until you fInd a level of pressure which works for your skin. To use – I prefer to scoop out enough to scrub a limb at a time in gentle, circular motions and then finish with the rest of my body, this way I’m not overusing it, plus, I can contain some of the messy residue. On a side note, you’ll end up with that odd sensation on your palms, almost a numb feeling which goes hand-in-hand with a very granular scrub like this but don’t worry it they’ll soon return to normal.

Personally, I have a new-found love of natural exfoliating products, I’m drawn to the cruelty-free, ethical and natural ingredients, along with the skin benefits which far out-weigh your standard high street scrub. What about you? Would you prefer to use a healthier option?

    I’m a big fan of scrubs too, it sounds like this one has some lovely ingredients. I’m using The Organic Pharmacy’s Cleopatra body scrub at the moment which also leaves the bathtub in a bit of a mess!

    I really have to start using a scrub cause my skin is in terrible condition. I bought some from NIVEA to try on my face, but I have yet to find something for the rest of my body – not to mention my feet, which are in one of the worst conditions ever. Thanks for reminding me I should start taking care of it also!

      You’re welcome lovely. I know we can forget about our body sometimes when we’re busy taking care of our face! I would really recommend this kind of scrub as you’ll see results much quicker than using a drug store product which may be full of nasty ingredients. This is relatively inexpensive, plus you can use my 20% off code! Thanks for stopping by x

    Who wouldn’t want to try a nice product like this right? It is very essential to have a healthy and good looking skin during summer. I am sure this would help a lot.
