If you’ve peeked under your clothes lately and gasped at the condition of your dry, winter skin, it’s time for the miracle benefits of a sugar scrub. Packed with gritty, natural sugar cane granules, sugar scrubs are the best way to exfoliate your body and prepare your skin for the summer months. Here’s how to use a sugar scrub to slough away tired, winter skin from head to toe in an all-natural way.
1. Step in the shower or bathtub and wet your skin all over.
2. Squeeze or scoop a generous amount of the sugar scrub into your hand. You may also use a body brush, face cloth or exfoliating gloves.
3. Massage gently in circular motions on legs, hands, arms, elbows and any part of the body that needs smoothing.
4. Rinse well with warm water. To allow more absorption of properties into the skin, you can let the scrub sit on the skin for a few minutes before rinsing. Pat dry.
5. Follow with a lotion like Eminence Organics Coconut Firming Body Lotion for extra moisture. If you’re on your way out, apply Eminence Organics Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen for protection as well.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I EXFOLIATE MY BODY?
Now that you’ve mastered the technique for exfoliating all over, you may ask yourself, “How often should I exfoliate my body?” For those with hardier skin types, exfoliating two to three times a week maintains soft skin all over. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to restrict yourself to a good scrub just once a week. Of course, if your skin is feeling delicate after exposure to the sun or shaving, you should avoid exfoliating altogether.
WHY USE a SUGAR SCRUB?
A full body scrub with sugar is essential for a number of reasons. A sugar scrub:
1. Removes dead skin cells - Sugar cane granules and alpha hydroxy acids work together to lift and remove dry, dead skin cells that have accumulated over the winter season.
2. Increases circulation - Exfoliating with granules stimulates your circulation, increasing blood flow and invigorating the skin with more oxygen.
3. Prepares for more effective hydration and better sunscreen protection - Without dead skin cells and dirt in the way, body lotions and sunscreen sink more quickly and effectively into the skin.
4. Smooths the skin - Of course, the top reason for using sugar scrubs is soft and silky skin. With swimsuits and sundresses de rigeur for warm weather, you’ll want the smoothest skin for summer.
