Let’s talk about exfoliating!

Why exfoliate?

Depending on your skin type or even as we age, our skin’s natural cycle of shedding dead skin cells changes. Throughout the year, mainly due to the weather and climate, this cycle will also change, which is probably why many of you find your skin to become very lacklustre and dull during the winter months.

What is exfoliation?

Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells from the uppermost layer of the skin, not a nice thought I know, bringing newer skin cells to the surface to create younger fresher looking skin. This new skin holds water better and allows moisturisers to penetrate the layers instead of just sitting on top of the epidermis. It boosts circulation and unclogs pores for a smoother, more youthful complexion. To get the best results it’s recommended to exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week depending on your skin type.

Natural-french-soapsNatural French soaps to help you achieve softer, smoother skin

At the French Soap Store we have the ultimate products to help you achieve softer, smoother skin with our wide range of gentle exfoliating soap bars.

There is nothing better than starting the day with a refreshing shower using one of our organic soaps which contain seeds, herbs and flowers for that natural scrubby sensation. Our natural French soaps are silicone and paraben free, 100% vegetal and vegan friendly (except the donkey milk soaps which contain the milk of animal origin). Being enriched with organic Shea butter, these soaps leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised.

Our excellent range of soaps includes the Verbena exfoliating organic donkey milk soap for sensitive skin, a wide range of French market soaps and Écolier oval soap bars (otherwise know as soap on rope). Take a look at our best of both soaps, the orange and macadamia tandem soap. This all-natural soap has a dual-sided design; one exfoliating, one smooth. The rough side is dotted with grainy bits to exfoliate dead, flaky skin and the smooth side generates an ultra-creamy foam that softly moisturises. Bursting with natural essential oils that nourish, pamper and leave behind an amazing fragrance, these French soap bars are the best of both worlds.

With our great range of French soaps from Provence you are bound to find one that suits you. And to get the most out of your soap try an organic hemp soap bag which is not only great for holding your soap secure whilst in the bath or shower but also helps create more lather with the added benefit of gently exfoliating your skin as you bathe.
