Beauty Aisle: Elemental Herbology Beach Prep


Elemental Herbology Beach Prep ScrubWhat: An all-natural body polish that exfoliates two super-effective ways: with fruit enzymes (think papaya) and with fine sea salt. It thoughtfully contains cold-pressed buriti oil, a hot-shot ingredient and amazing skin-nourisher that leaves you hydrated and glowing (not tight, itchy, or abraded).

Why: This body scrub wants to slough off your dead summer skin before you reach for a self-tanner (do so carefully) or a pair of short shorts.

Who: Elemental Herbology is a natural beauty brand from the UK that makes all of its products seasonally specific (a concept we love), and they’re super natural: no synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, mineral oils, sulphates, or parabens. Interesting factoid: Founder Kristy Cimesa is an acupuncturist.
