Because sometimes you just need to scrub it off, scrub it off (cue Taylor Swift)…
If you saw this Instagram post from back in February, then you are fully aware that I am an idiot who sprained her foot. Badly. One awful side effect, aside from not being able to work out, cross your legs and, of course, the actual pain of a sprain is the fact that you get THE WORST dry skin ever in the area where you wear the ace bandage. I’m talking like scales, guys. It’s gross, and I refuse to take a photo of it. That said, I’ve been on the hunt for a good new body scrub that I will actually work with out me really applying too much pressure (cause yeah, my foot still hurts…in APRIL).
I’ve been using The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub for the past week or so and it’s been working REALLY WELL. Like, the dry fish scales are totally gone and they disappeared with 100% no pain.
So here’s what I love about this particular scrub:
- It lifts away dead skin cells (hence, the “fish scales” on my bum foot)
- It’s infused with replenishing green tea from Japan, and I love anything from Japan
- It has community fair trade honey from Ethiopia (more on that below)
It’s always nice when you use fair trade products, just saying. The Body Shop sourced Community Fair Trade honey from the UNESCO Sheka Forest Biosphere Reserve in the southern region of Ethiopia, where African bees distil the nectar of rainforest flowers to create a distinctive floral honey. To collect this precious honey, they work with the ‘bee whisperers’ of Beza Mar, a group dedicated to improving the livelihood of Ethiopian beekeeping communities and maintaining their traditional, natural way of working with bees. Two thumbs up here…
