Green Tea Facial Scrub | By Bella Reina
Bella Brief: The secret to camera ready skin is proper exfoliation. Our antioxidant Green Tea scrub will transform a dull complexion into a dewy one in seconds. Coconut, Avocado, Jojoba, and Hemp Oil mingle with microscopic grains to encourage healthier, smoother, clearer and more even-toned skin. A bonus to exfoliation is that there is better absorption of moisturizers

Jojoba Oil: In reality jojoba oil is not an oil but a liquid wax. Because it's composed of wax esters, it is extremely stable. Works as an effective cleanser, conditioner, moisturizer and softener for the skin and hair. It can be applied directly to the skin to soften the skin, reduce wrinkles and stretch marks, lighten and help heal scars, and promote healthy scalp and hair. The structure of jojoba oil closely resembles that of your own skin sebum, the natural coating our body produces to protect the skin and keep it supple. Our skin loses sebum with age, sun, wind, cold and the environment. Jojoba contains protein, minerals and a waxy substance that mimics collagen. If your skin has an over production of sebum, jojoba oil will dissolve clogged pores and restore the skin to its natural pH balance. The reason jojoba oil works so well is that it actually penetrates the skin easily, because it is accepted as sebum.
Shea Butter: (Butyrosperum Parkii) The natural fat obtained from the fruit of the Karite tree helps protects the skin from dehydration and other climatic influences. It also restores skin suppleness, increases moisture, improves elasticity retention, assists cellular regeneration, and can improve the appearance of dry, irritated skin. Rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins A and E, shea butter heals, soothes, and protects the skin from environmental damage. Safe for even sensitive, fragile skin, it is a superb, easily-absorbed emollient. Shea butter has a high content of unsaponifiable and cinnamic esters, which have antimicrobial and moisturizing properties and provide protection from the UV rays of the sun. These unsaponifiables (plant steroids or sterolins) soften the skin, have superior moisturizing effect on the upper layer of the skin, and can reduce scars.
Hemp Oil: This oil is one of the richest sources of polyunsaturated fats known to mankind. This includes both essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and Omega 6) and GLA (gamma linolenic acid), which make it an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer. It is 57% linoleic and 19% linoleic acids. Hemp is a wonderful oil for dry or mature skin since it is said to help stimulate cell growth. It has high levels of essential fatty acids, including linolenic acid. Natural hemp seed oil is dark green and has a nutty rich scent. Body care products containing hemp seed oil may help reduce skin discomfort by soothing & restoring dry/damaged skin. Regular use of hemp seed oil on the skin may help slow down the effects of skin aging and leave the skin soft, smooth and moisturized.
