Hawaiian Turbinado Sugar Scrub
Why Sugar Scrubs?
Sugar scrubs are gentler than salt scrubs because the granule is round and therefore doesn’t have any ability to “cut” the skin. It’s a far better choice for sensitive skin types and the only choice for the face. Sugar granules dissolve more easily in hot water, and they are less abrasive than salt scrubs. While sugar scrubs don’t have the mineral benefits of salt scrubs, the natural sugars contain the nutritive properties of sugar cane. The glycolic acid content of sugar is another plus, helping to protect skin against harmful toxins. Vital for the maintenance of healthy skin, this acid works to both condition and moisturize. Sugar also has the benefit of melting as you use it, from the heat of your skin, so you can customize the product based on your personal skin type and need. For all these reasons, sugar makes a great scrub!
Whether one chooses a salt or sugar scrub, used regularly, the skin will become much healthier in function and appearance—better circulation and with a more even skin tone. Once dead skin cells are removed, the largest organ of the body works more effectively to remove toxins and absorb nourishment. Best of all, because both are pure products, there are few, if any side effects, so the natural glow is exactly that… natural!
How to Use
Put any desired amount of scrub in the palm of your hand. Pour melted Massage Candle Wax onto scrub and apply on skin for an ultimate exfoliating massage! Rinse with soap and warm water.
Add a few scoops of scrub to a warm bath for a nourishing soak.
