It might be hard to tell sugar and salt apart when they’re sitting side by side, but when they’re used in body scrubs, you can generally tell the difference right away. Both sugar and salt scrubs are great exfoliators—the coarse grains help slough off dead cells on the skin’s top layer to reveal the rejuvenated, glowing skin underneath.
But each has its own unique benefits, too. Salt, for example—especially extra-coarse sea salt—is more abrasive than sugar, so it’s especially effective on trouble spots, like your heels and elbows. Salt is also good for acne-prone skin, since it absorbs oil well.
Sugar scrubs, like the Verve Organics Soul Sister Lavender Nut Sugar Scrub in your autumn Yuzen box, are gentler on the skin than salt scrubs. Sugar dissolves in warm water a little better than salt does, so it’s easier on sensitive skin. Plus, when you add other delicious ingredients like Verve Organics does, sugar scrubs can really soothe your soul. Soul Sister contains lavender essential oil that adds a calming note to your day as the coconut oil gently softens and moisturizes your skin. Soul Sister smells rich and delicious, almost good enough to eat!
All of Verve Organics’ blissful sugar scrubs are made with all-natural ingredients, never any chemicals, parabens, or sodium laurel sulfates. Find other delightful combinations, like Ms. Margarita and Java Mama, at www.verveorganics.com.
