During the summer, I take advantage of nature and use that sand at the beach to exfoliate. I rub it on my body to remove the dead skin, and then rinse it off with the ocean water. The combination of the two leaves my skin soft and clear. That’s about as natural as you can get with skin care. For the other 9 months of the year, I need something else to exfoliate at home.
A good friend of mine from ASU, Colt, started his own company, KarmaSutra Organics, where he sells a Karma Sutra Body Scrub and Cold Pressed Juices. During college, both of us loved working out and were starting to get into the health and wellness scene so it’s awesome to see him develop his passion into a business.
Colt sent me a sample of his body scrub which I tried out last weekend at the beach with my bestie Zoe, and we were extremely impressed. First of all, it smells like coffee…what’s better than smothering your body in the most delicious smell that you wake up craving every morning? Second, it’s “all natural” and when they say that, they actually mean it. So many products claim to be all natural but then when you look at the ingredients you don’t recognize half of them or they contain toxic chemicals (sulfates, synthetic fragrance, silicones, glycols, formaldehyde, etc.). KarmaSutra is vegan, cruelty-free, not tested on animals, and made with all organic ingredients (that you actually recognize): organic ground coffee, virgin organic cold pressed coconut oil, raw coconut sugar, cold pressed castor oil, essential oils. It’s important to be conscious of the ingredients in your skincare products because the skin is the largest organ on your body and anything you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream.
The benefits of exfoliating include stimulating blood flow and increasing cell regeneration, detoxing and breaking up oils to nourish, replenish and hydrate the skin. If you’re looking for a new all natural scrub, and are a coffee lover, then head to Karmasutra and give this product a try! Use code JACNLEX20 at checkout for 20% off!
