Sugar may not have a place in a healthy diet, but used in your skincare regime it can leave you with a glowing complexion.
And who doesn’t want beautiful, dewy skin as the days start to warm up and we shed our winter layers?
Sugar’s fine texture makes it the perfect natural exfoliant, to gently soften and freshen up skin.
Unlike a salt scrub, sugar scrubs don’t dry the skin. The glycolic acid content of sugar both conditions and moisturises, as well as helping protect against harmful toxins.
When exfoliating it is important to look beyond your neckline - a regular full-body exfoliation will leave your skin looking and feeling amazing.
Why use a body scrub?
Exfoliating is an important step in your beauty routine, as it smooths the skin, helping moisturisers penetrate better and self-tan products glide on evenly.
The benefits of using a body scrub at home are the same as having an exfoliation spa treatment. Here are just a few:
- Exfoliates, resurfaces and polishes
- Deeply detoxifies
- Improves circulation and lymphatic system
- Removes dead skin cells
- Calms and relaxes
- Helps battle cellulite
How to use
At VOYA we have combined sugar with seaweed, lavender and almond oil to create our Effervescence dual-action, milky body scrub, to revive rough and dull looking skin.
Apply a small amount of the seaweed scrub to damp skin and massage in circular movements all over the body. Once the scrub is massaged in, step into a warm shower.
When the scrub mixes with water it will turn into a beautiful body milk which will leave your skin nourished and glowing. Ensure all of the scrub is rinsed off before applying VOYA’s Mindful Moments body oil or Softly Does It body lotion.
What people are saying
Launched earlier this year, Effervescence was inspired by our exfoliation spa treatment and has proved very popular with both our loyal customers and beauty industry experts.
Here’s what some of them have to say:
“Skin feels gorgeous afterwards: satin-y soft – and with a restored glow, after those dead, flat, non-reflective cells have been banished. The scent is just lovely, grounding and soothing the senses with a blend of rosemary and lavender (and just a little ozonic waft from the seaweed) … we have a new favourite.” – Beauty Bible
“… my skin has never felt so smooth and nourished. I am delighted. I haven’t had to apply a moisturiser after my shower either. If you do have dry skin or rough skin you may need a moisturising product after you dry your skin, but I found the benefits of using this scrub long-lasting. Only a small amount is needed, and the consistency goes from a natural seaweed-sugar exfoliator to a soothing milk when the warm water is used. The smell of the product is natural and subtle, but there are distinct aromas of the ingredients lavender and orange, which are perfectly paired with seaweed, as they add a sweeter scent … this scrub seems to have nothing but love for our bodies.” – Holistic Therapist Magazine
“Seaweed and sugar are blended with nourishing oils in this gorgeously gooey body scrub that actually smells like the sea.” – Hello Magazine (Top 10 Environmentally Friendly Scrubs)
“It’s never too early to get summer body prep underway. VOYA’s new Effervescence Nourishing Sugar Scrub teams seaweed with exfoliating sugar scrub to smooth.” – Irish Tatler
