St. Ives Apricot Scrub – Why We Love Apricot
Say hello to glowing skin. You can’t beat the deep exfoliation of St. Ives apricot face scrub for clean, smooth, illuminated skin. 100% natural exfoliants (like walnut shell powder) and apricot fruit extract leave skin feeling super soft and smooth. But is apricot scrub good for the skin?
Apricot Benefits For Skin
Face scrubs formulated with apricot kernels promote new skin growth by ridding the skin of the old, dead cells on the surface. Because it rids the skin of the damaged surface cells, this exfoliating action can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Some apricot scrubs include apricot kernel oil which acts as an emollient. The moisturizing properties of this natural oil help keep your skin cells hydrated while counteracting any drying effects associated with exfoliating your skin. The end result: healthier-looking skin and a softer surface.
Better Skin Tone
Exfoliation is the key benefit of apricot face scrubs and it can correct poor skin tone by exfoliating away damaged skin. They also prevent pigmentation, revealing fresher, lighter, younger skin cells below the surface. Game changer!
Apricot kernels are completely natural as is the apricot oil in the scrub. So, if you want to go au naturel, apricot oil for skin is the way to go.
Can I use Apricot Face Scrub Daily?
We recommend using St. Ives apricot face scrub – or any of St. Ives scrubs for that matter – 3 to 4 times a week. If you’re prone to breakouts, try our favorite apricot scrub for acne, St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub. Remember to alternate face scrub days with a moisturizing face wash like St. Ives Apricot and Manuka Honey Cleansing Stick or Apricot Oil Scrub.
