Prevent Outbreaks & Body Scarring

IMG_0519

My city has fallen victim to the thick blanket of smog that now shadows our beautiful skyline. From the looks of it, the PSI has reached hazardous levels and show no sign of surrender –this haze will be with us longer than anyone anticipated.  All at the same time, our skin is suffocating. The density of harmful pollutants in the air along with the impenetrable humidity depresses our glow, chokes up our pores and promotes breakouts. 

The Body Shop’s Cocoa Butter Shower Cream has had a reserved spot in my bathroom for over seven years ever since… well, puberty. It has proven it’s worth again during these trying times of dealing with this rubbish atmosphere. A contrary to most, I never suffered from facial breakouts other than the tiny blemishes that seem to appear before my period, I am well versed in putting up with bacne and hyperpigmentation on other parts of my skin. 

Although advertised as a soap-free body wash that is primal to enhancing your body’s moisture, its use extends beyond reason. Personally, I’ve witness a notable difference on how my body reacts to the weather after using it. Give or take a few weeks of using this shower cream as an additional cleanser on top of my usual body wash, my breakouts on my back has vastly reduced and the once unsightly scaring that tarnished my complexion has faded.  

However, if you are looking for an immediate solution, this product is not for you. Most skincare products will take more than one use to produce visible results. Also, what works for me might not work for you but there is no harm in giving this product a chance.
