The sun’s been out for most of July in Vancouver (yay!), which means I’ve been wearing lots of short-sleeved tops and dresses and skirts. But what this really means is that I’ve been taking more yoga classes and being barefoot.
Now I don’t know about you, but I cringe when I see feet that are calloused and flaky — ugh, yuck! Luckily for me, Modern Hippie sent some Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, made with all-natural sugar (rather than those plastic microbeads) and a blend of essential oils… plus the grapefruit scent smells amazing!
This sugar scrub is great for removing dead skin cells, promoting new cell growth, and is overall moisturizing — leading to healthy, smooth skin.
In the past, I’ve made sugar scrubs and mine always turn out more grainy — perhaps it’s the size of the sugar crystals that I’m using, but I love the texture of this one — it’s fine but gritty enough to really slough off that dead skin. The oils keep my skin hydrated, even so that I don’t really need to add moisturizer afterwards. The downside of the oils is that it does make the bathtub a little slick, but I just scrub it down with some soap.
I’ve also used the organic sugar scrubs from Rocky Mountain Soap Company and theirs is a little more oilier — which is great for locking in moisture, but not so great when it comes to slippery bathtubs. This one from Modern Hippie has the perfect balance of sugar to oil so you’re not left feeling greasy. And look at that super pretty pink colour!
To use, just scoop about 1 tablespoon and gently massage it over your body parts that need exfoliating until the sugar dissolves. Then rinse and pat dry. No need for additional moisturizer, but if you’re like me, I like to lock it in with some body lotion.
Thanks to Modern Hippie’s Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, all I have to do is just focus on my cobra pose and not worry about everyone seeing my flaky dry feet.
