Some Self-Care Tips

Following these guidelines can have miracles for your skincare routine:

Control Your Excitement Level

We know it’s tough when you get a shiny new product in hand -especially one filled with apricots(yumm!). But don’t go overboard while applying it unless you want irritated dry-looking peeling out later(Jeez). The rule is simple – Don’t play doctor unless you have certification.

Choose Your Own Adventure For Frequency Of Use Okay Listen Up-

Every person’s skin is unique; thus, even this method may differ from person to person. Thrice a week is usually recommended as excessive use can lead to irritation or adverse reactions(Say nope!).

However, if your physician recommends otherwise following any specific medical condition consulting them first would be ideal(Better safe than sorry!).

Also worth remembering- beauty sleep does exist,you smurf!(Just kidding), but seriously an effective skincare routine only works best when accompanied by quality sleep(one word close to our hearts- Netflix).

To sum it up, Consistency is KEY!

Storage Matters

This isn’t rocket science- Store the tube of scrub out of direct sunlight & in a cool place to ensure optimal results(Without the risk of turning into a human pancake).

Don’t Wait Around

After using St. Ives Apricot Scrub make sure you rinse your skin well and pat dry with a towel—the rule applies here—don’t wait around else your neighbors would mistake you for wearing charcoal face masks.
