Packed with Vitamins A, C and E, apricots are a treasure trove of antioxidants and minerals. Together with a considerable amount of beta carotene, it is a potent weapon to fight against free radical damage caused by environmental aggressors like sun exposure and pollution. Using scrubs made with apricot kernels helps in sloughing away dead skin cells, which promotes cell renewal and enhances one’s skin tone. Some apricot scrubs also use apricot kernel oil, a great emollient that moisturises and hydrates skin, to counterbalance the drying effects of the exfoliation process that can often leave your skin feeling dehydrated.
