Forget what you have heard about chocolate being bad for your skin.
Being a superfood, raw cacao is loaded with antioxidants that our skin craves and is a vital component in helping to repair damage to skin.
The coconut cacao scrub pairs all the goodness of chocolate with delicious moisturizing coconut for a tasty exfoliating experience.
Why you should regularly use a Coconut Cacao coffee scrub?
With over a trillion skin cells needing attention exfoliation is key.
Not only will you shed cells that are tired and expired, but you’ll also help encourage cell rejuvenation.
The anti-inflammatory properties in coffee treat redness in the skin, reduce the appearance of under eye circles, leaving you with a beautiful even skin tone.
Watch small varicose veins decrease; caffeine is a vaso-restrictor, so helps shrink pesky blood vessels.
Coconut & Cacao
Cacao blocks out free radicals helping with premature aging due to being chock full of skin friendly vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, vitamin C and omega 6 fatty acids.
These vitamins help to increase blood flow and promote cellular healing: two very important processes of the body that boost a youthful glow.
Pair this with protein rich coconut for an enhanced scrub experience.
Coconut improves skin barrier functions and is rich in proteins.
This is in addition to its excellent moisturising and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it a beneficial treatment for skin conditions such as eczema.
How to use it
- Use Ili all over: from your nose to your toes on a dry or slightly wet body, using pressure and circular motions (Ili works best on damp skin),
- insist in areas that need it most and allow the coffee to be on your skin for at least five minutes,
- you may continue to scrub during this time to further encourage circulation (no worries about the coffee color on your skin as it will rinse away),
- rinse and repeat every few days.
We recommend a patch test for those who have highly sensitive skin.
For pregnant mamas, it’s always best to consult with your health care practitioner before introducing new products into your self-care ritual.
