How To Enjoy Your New Sugar Scrub
Put your mind at ease. Be ready to relax and let the day's stresses flow by without worry. Be ready to embody the God's & Grit way. Imagine you are at your favorite spa or hot springs, letting your muscles and mind rest and recover. With your G & G scrub, the goal is to massage your skin, letting the sugars and oils work for you as it gently moisturizes, exfoliates, and soothes your skin.
Each scrub was carefully crafted to be that bath and body product that helps you step back and realize that your body needs to be cared for, both in mind, body, and spirit. Each scrub was meant to be a channel for positive growth, bringing upon healthier skin and a sublime mindset.
We recommend using the sugar scrub on your entire body, except your face which requires different care which we will explain below. Everyone's skin is different. Different pigment, varied texture, coarse or smooth dryness. Because of this, we ask you to be mindful as you try each scrub as the sugar granules and moisturizing oils change. Each will have unique and beneficial effects. Below we list the different ways on how to use our scrubs.
STEP #1: Begin With Clean Skin (If Possible)
For your exfoliating and moisturizing routine. you can either use the scrubs on wet or dry skin. If taking a shower, we recommend wetting your skin, turning the shower head off or away from you, and massaging your skin with the sugar scrub. If applying the sugar scrub "dry," we recommend having the area of your skin clean(free from dirt) if possible.
You can wet your skin and then dry with a hand towel to ensure your skin is clean. This is not necessary, but recommended. "Dry scrubbing" before use is also an option. Your skin does not have to be wet to use the scrubs. Many people wash their hands with the sugar scrubs, using the scrub before washing their hands with water. Remember, everyone has an ideal preference whether they like their skin wet or dry. We're just hear to help guide you to have the best experience.
STEP #2: Gently Massage In Circular Motions
Exfoliating is a key benefit of using a sugar cane scrub. Sugar naturally has glycolic acid(AHA), which penetrates the skin and breaks down the glue that bonds skin cells, increasing cell turnover and healthy regrowth, generating fresh, younger-looking skin.
To begin exfoliating, carefully scoop out enough scrub to cover the center of the palm of your hand(about 1-2 inches in diameter). Then, choose the section you'd like to moisturize and massage the sugar scrub onto your skin in gentle, circular motions. Let the sugar granules work for you. Excessive pressure is not needed. After about 30 seconds of massaging, your skin should be covered in both oils and small granules of sugar.
STEP #3: Rinse & Dry
After you've exfoliated the area of your body(face, legs, feet, arms, etc), rinse with warm water and pat the area lightly with a towel. Careful, you don't want to push too hard and remove the entirety of the oils, they are working to keep your skin healthy and fresh. You should now feel the difference of properly exfoliating with our scrubs. Easy, right?! Now for the last part... the assessment.
STEP #4: The Assessment
As you use more of our scrubs, you will notice subtle differences between them. We urge you to find your favorites. To do this, carefully assess your skin after use and see how each effects your skin differently. The smell, the feel, the moisturization... It all matters and its what inspired us to create the Gods & Grit line. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Tips For Facial Scrubbing:
Each of our scrubs has a different oil content and sugar granule size. Our smallest granule size is ZEUS with an "Ultra Fine" granule rating. Some customers love APOLLO our vitamin scrub or AURORA our coffee scrub to use for their face. These have "medium" granule sizes. We urge you to try them on your face and to be careful when applying any pressure. Your face is sensitive and requires extra care. As always, be careful about getting the scrub near your eyes.
