Post Workout Necessity: St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub

(Photo courtesy)The battle for healthy, clear skin doesn't have to cost a fortune. Sometimes good old-fashioned drugstore products are the best tools for the job. Take our trusty St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub. We've been using this little scrub for a while now, and at the end of the day, we keep coming back for more.

The soothing green tea formula helps to calm skin and reduce redness, which is exactly why it's our pick for a post workout exfoilator. It cleanses skin and gets rid of all that nasty sweat buildup from a good run, but it doesn't leave you all red and splotchy (i.e. cherry tomato-esque.) And although, the exfoliating beads in the scrub are strong, they're still itty bitty so you don't get that rough sandpaper feel during use. Plus, the oil-free salicylic acid actually helps get rid of pesky acne, which some of us still struggle with. Um, score.

What can we say. Sometimes the classics work best.
