So, it’s the middle of August and everyone is enjoying the last weeks of summer, basking under the sun and getting a nice tan (or sunburn for the unlucky few). I know some of you have gone through a multitude of skincare products and are letting mother nature do the rest but for me, I’ll be starting a new skincare routine to prep my skin for the Fall. Yeah, I know, no one wants to hear about the Fall right now but I believe in preparing my skin ahead of time for the forthcoming season !
I’m sure many of you are familiar with Frank Body, the Australian skin care range that uses coffee-based ingredients. Well, yours truly has stocked up on a variety of their products and I am starting my new skin care routine by exfoliating my skin using the Original Coffee Scrub. I use it on my body and a little on my face when I am taking a shower and sometimes, if I really want to get messy, I’ll exfoliate in the bathtub. So imagine how my tub looks at the end of a head-to-toe exfoliation ? Yep, one giant coffee cup that could last you several Monday mornings. But it’s worth it when you end up with baby soft skin, especially when you know you haven’t had to use anything with toxic ingredients to achieve that. Amazing !
