Extra fine pure cane sugar is the exfoliant in this scrub. It is an effective, gently abrasive ingredient. Sugar is a natural humectant, so it helps keep skin (in this case lips) hydrated. Sugar is also known to be a pure, natural source of Glycolic Acid, which helps to break down dead skin cells and encourage fresh cell turnover.
Mango butter, whipped to a smooth creamy texture, is high in stable Vitamin C and other antioxidants (fighting off those nasty signs of premature aging). It is a light, dry-feeling butter that will moisturize, repair and revitalize your lips.
Organic castor seed oil has many skin benefits but it is included in this lip scrub for its moisturizing abilities. It is thick, silky and is absorbed into the skin easily. It also leaves a nice shine!
Plum seed oil is included not only for its antioxidant and moisturizing benefits - but also for its awesome scent (mild, sweet, marzipan and nutty aroma). Combined it with the peppermint oil - yum!
Organic beet root powder has been shown to improve the health of skin when applied topically; however, we are using it here simply for its other characteristic - its beautiful color and natural tinting abilities.
Scoop a small amount of the sugar scrub with your finger or spatula. Gently rub the scrub onto your lips and surrounding area in a circular motion. (Do not rub too hard or you will actually irritate your lips.) Some of the sugar will dissolve, remove any remaining crystals with a soft wash cloth or tissue (or honestly, lick it off!). All that is left is soft, smooth lips!
Use whenever your lips are feeling a little neglected.
