Sugar Scrub (Lavender)
Sugar scrubs are great to use in the winter, as exfoliating the top layer of skin helps moisturizers penetrate more deeply and hydrate longer.
First, sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. So when you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives, they’ll actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within.
Secondly, sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the “glue” that bonds skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresher, younger-looking skin.
Lavender helps to relax you, not only get skin that’s more healthy and vibrant, you receive the wellness benefits of using lavender essential oil, which include its ability to eliminate tension, promote relaxation, relieve pain, and enhance blood circulation.
