Rose Quartz Luxurious Foaming Sugar Scrub
Luxurious Foaming sugar scrub is a great foaming scrub which will help with exfoliating your skin. This foaming scrub when applied gently will help shed the bad skin which will help keep your skin clean and smooth but also will make you smell good. It comes in several different scents and but used on any part of the body.
The scrub contains a natural source of glycolic acid (an AHA), sugar breaks down layers of dead skin and smooths the skin's surface. It also speeds up rehydration, keeping skin conditioned and moisturized. For this reason, sugar scrubs are a fantastic pick for dry and dehydrated types.
Wet your skin. Warm water will soften your skin and prepare it for exfoliation. A good rule of thumb is to soak in the tub or stand under the shower for 5 to 10 minutes before you begin scrubbing.
Water that’s too hot can dry out your skin. The optimal temperature for your skin is a lukewarm temperature below 105 °F (41 °C) (if your skin is turning red, it’s too hot!).
If you’re going to shave your legs, do so before using the sugar scrub to avoid stinging and irritation.
Wash your skin before you scrub to remove sweat, dirt, and makeup. Otherwise scrubbing could push it further into the skin.
Massage the scrub into your skin. With gentle pressure, rub the sugar scrub into your skin in a circular motion using the pads of your fingers.
This not only sloughs off dead skin, it also boosts circulation and stimulates the production of collagen in your body, a protein that helps fight wrinkles and keeps skin looking young.
Start at the top of your body and work down.
Be careful not to scrub too vigorously as it could damage your skin.
Rinse with warm water. There’s no need to use shower gel or soap following your scrub. For extra hydration and smoother skin, let the scrub sit on your body for a couple of minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
Dry off. Gently use a towel to pat your body completely dry.
Finish with lotion or body oil. Once you’re dry, apply lotion or body oil to moisturize your newly exfoliated skin. Do this immediately after drying off while your pores are still open and able to absorb the moisturizer easier and faster.
Have a jar of extra virgin coconut oil laying around. It can double as a cheap yet effective moisturizer thanks to its high level of saturated fats. Only use it if you aren’t prone to breaking out.
Always apply sunscreen after exfoliating as your skin is more vulnerable. Use one that's SPF 30 or higher and has broad-spectrum protection
Repeat once or twice a week. Sugar scrubs shouldn’t be part of your daily beauty routine. Over-exfoliating can irritate your skin so aim to use a sugar scrub no more than three times per week at most.
Don’t use a sugar scrub on skin that’s sunburned or highly sensitive. You should also avoid it after any type of medical or cosmetic surgery or after a chemical peel - in both instances, your body is trying to recover from what is essentially a trauma and any harsh scrubbing could prevent proper healing.
