Deep clean and exfoliate from head to toe. Lovely lavender sugar scrub is gentle enough for your face.
If you feel your body has a dull appearance it could mean an accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. The best way to regain that healthy glow is to remove those old skin cells through exfoliation.
Sugar scrubs are a great way to slough off that old layer, unclog blocked pores, and be amazed at the difference in how you look and feel.
Our Lovely Lavender Sugar Scrub is brown in color because the sugars used are raw. White sugar as we are most familiar is the result of sulphur dioxide being introduced to the cane juice before evaporation. It effectively bleaches the mixture. Typical brown sugar for baking is white sugar with the addition of molasses. The sugars used for this sugar scrub are evaporated sugar cane juice and demerara sugar.
Cane sugar contains a naturally occurring acid known as glycolic acid which belongs to the family of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA). These acids stimulate and loosen the dry flaky layer created by these dead skin cells.
Sugars used are chosen due to their organic origins and grain texture. Cane juice sugar has the finer texture and demerara sugar offers a coarser level of exfoliation. Glycerin, soothing aloe vera and the almost magical properties of honey are added for their skin loving hydrating benefits. The healing touches of aromatherapy are included with the use of lavender. Lavender and sweet orange essential oils help bring you to a place of serenity and lavender buds will aide the sugar in exfoliation as they release their aroma upon being crushed while you use the scrub.
The saturation of moisture in the scrub by dissolved sugar produces a natural preservative through a process called osmosis. Bacteria's moisture is dehydrated by the created hypertonic solution. The glycerin also offers preservation benefits. However, being we do not add synthetic preservatives shelf life may be limited should bacterial be introduced from your fingers or water dripping into the scrub. We suggest the included scoop be used to stir and dip out the portion to be used. The glycerin may separate and float on top of the sugar so just gently stir the scrub before use.
Wet the chosen area of skin and apply a small portion at a time and massage in gentle circular motions. When finished rinse off with warm to cool water. Don't use hot water as hot water may break delicate capillaries. Pat dry, don't rub, and follow with a moisturizer.
Sugar scrubs are less abrasive than salt scrubs, so you can use it as often as once or twice a week, depending on skin type. Use on just your rough elbows, knees or feet or enjoy its nourishing effects over the entire body including your face (gently).
You'll love the way your skin feels after such pampering. It'll be like a spa treatment in the privacy of your own bathroom but without the price tag!
