LIPSTICK LEAGUE QUESTION OF THE WEEK – WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BODY SCRUB?
Question of the Week: Do you use body scrubs? If so, how often and what are some of your favorites?
I’m obsessed with scrubs of any kind – and I especially love Murad’s Acne Body Wash. Summer is a double-whammy for body acne…First, the hot sweaty weather makes me get more breakouts, and second, it’s too warm to hide it under layers of clothing! I use this Murad scrub every day and it really helps to keep body breakouts under control (no one wants bacne!).
June is Acne Awareness Month, so let’s keep talking about how to get rid of it! I also love the Murad Rapid Relief Acne Spot Treatment and Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel. When I need to take care of pimples quickly, the salicylic acid-based spot treatment really does the trick. Murad promises less swelling in four hours, and that seems to be true! It doesn’t get RID of pimples in four hours (boy would they be rich if that were true!), but it reduces swelling and sends the pimples packing. I am also a huge fan of benzoyl peroxide, but I like to switch it up from time to time. I feel like salicylic works best on regular zits and benzoyl works best on cystic acne (just don’t use both at the same time or you might get irritated, red skin). The Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel has hydroquinone, which some people avoid. I believe it’s safe as long as you give yourself breaks every now and then. I’m still testing this one, so I’ll let you know if it clears up my acne scars and melasma. If you are on the hunt for some new acne-treating products, I highly recommend giving Murad a try!
