Skin types vary from person to person. Regardless of what skin type you have, be it dry, normal or oily the best way to exfoliate, is via natural products. At Graceful Lilly, we only use natural resources; Products such as highly milled coffee grains or gentle loofas. The best way we have found so far, especially if you have sensitive skin, is to lightly press the scrub into your skin. If you press too firmly, you may burst blood vessels. Rub using circular motions. This motion will get the collagen moving (collagen production decreases after the age of 30) and blood circulating.

Coffee and Chocolate Scrubs –
If the coffee scrub seems to feel a bit too dry/hard, it’s simply a sign that the coconut oil has naturally tightened. If this happens, simply stick it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Voila!! The chocolate face and body scrub should be used within 3 weeks of opening the tub. This is to guard against free radicals. When not in use, keep the chocolate one in the fridge. When you get in the shower, or bath, wet your whole body with hot water. Turn off the taps. Dig your fingers into the scrub and apply it in circular motions. Unless you’ve been otherwise instructed, Graceful Lilly finds it imperative to leave the scrub on your tired skin for as long as possible. This will allow the coconut oil and the Epsom salts to do their stuff. When you leave the shower or bath, please don’t leave the scrub lying around. There won’t be any when you return! Once you’ve exfoliated your skin, the moisturiser will be much more easily absorbed by your fresh, new, soft skin.
If you have some type of dermatitis, please seek medical advice before applying. If you would like to experiment yourself, apply a small amount to your underarm pit. This is where the sensitive skin lives.
