The History of Exfoliation. Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin through either chemical or mechanical methods. But the practice itself also has a long history dating back to ancient Egypt when sour milk, which contains lactic acid, was used as a chemical exfoliant.

Lips have extremely thin skin. It is true that the lips do have many touch receptors. When scientists list the top areas of the body in terms of sensitivity, the lips are often ranked as the area with the highest concentrations of receptor cells. Because of the sensitivity of your lips they require special care. Gentle exfoliation with a fine to medium grade exfoliant grit soaked in skin loving oils helps keep your lips soft and fresh.
Exfoliation helps accelerate blood flow and strip off dead skin cells that often settle on the top layer of skin. Regular exfoliation maintains the fresh look and soft feel of your lips. Because your face and lips are exposed the most to nature's harsh weather changes, wind heat and pollutants, it is especially important to take extra care of that skin.
Care and Use :
Use a pinch the sugar scrub by taking it between thumb and index finger. Rub the scrub on your lips in a light circular motion top and bottom lips then wash it off with cool water. Feel free to lick the scrub it will taste sweet. Please don't eat it by the spoonfuls though we do have oils in the blend. After washing the lips and surrounding area thoroughly, simply pat your lips dry. Then use a lip balm or butter on your lips.
