US male grooming experts MenScience this month launched their newest addition to the Androceuticals line, the Advanced Body Scrub. The scrub contains a combination of hydroxy-acids and physical exfoliating ingredients that work in tandem to cleanse and smoothe skin. Glycolic and salicylic acids work to loosen dirt, oil and dead skin cells from the surface. Three types of microfine particles then physically scrub away this layer of grime to reveal a smooth and revitalised complexion. This promotes new skin cell growth, which leads to smoother, softer skin and reduces the appearance of dark spots such as sun damage and acne scars.

The Advanced Body Scrub has both immediate and long-term benefits for your skin; in the short-term, the physical exfoliants remove impurities and dead, dry skin cells, while in the long-term the glycolic and salicylic acids promote increased cell turnover. The Body Scrub also contains hydrating ingredients to revitalise skin after the rigours of scrubbing. Squalene, aloe and glycerine moisturise and restore skin’s natural suppleness. Rosemary and tea tree extracts sooth and calm skin and contain antibacterial qualities that help keep breakouts at bay.

For those of our readers that are frequent gym goers, here’s how to use the Body Scrub to your advantage. You take good care of your muscles in the gym, so complete the package; smoother skin means the muscles under it will look more defined.

How to improve your gym physique:

1. While in the shower, dispense a generous amount of product into palms of hands.
2. Apply to skin and massage in light, circular motions for at least 30 seconds.
3. Repeat on all areas of the body, paying special attention to rougher areas like elbows, knees and feet.
4. Rinse well.

The complete MenScience range, including the Advanced Body Scrub, is available at select retailers worldwide.
