The secret to smooth, healthy skin this summer

Clear skin and a cleaner conscience

As the harsh summer sun continues its onslaught, helping your skin to some extra pampering couldn’t really hurt. Since booking a weekly appointment with your neighbourhood spa doesn't fit into your hectic schedule, you might have to resort to plan B — ensuring your shower ritual includes a body scrub to slough off dead skin cells and rejuvenate tired skin, at least twice a week.

And since no responsible beauty junkie will put herself above the environment, we've ensured that all our recommended body scrubs come with natural extracts and soothing essential oils, none of that microbead poison that's polluting the oceans and wreaking havoc with marine life. How's that for clean skin and a cleaner conscience?
