As the skin ages it tends to dry out more easily and also become flaky with small pieces of skin adhering to its surface. This tends to cause irritation and discomfort. A green tea scrub incorporates three factors which alleviate this discomfort. Firstly the tea provides tannins and fragrant oils. These when applied to the skin reduce irritation and inflammatory responses; remember how mother used to apply tea to sunburn? The second ingredient is high quality hydrophilic massage oil which nourishes the skin and restores flexibility and elasticity. The third component is natural sea salt whose crystals gently remove those adhering flakes of dry skin that give rise to so much of the irritation. This leaves your skin as smooth as the proverbial babie’s derriere.
