Sugar For The Skin

Although, sugar may be bad for you teeth but it is a wonderful ingredient for skin care.  It is a natural humectant meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin.  When you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives they will help to hydrate your skin and keep moisture within. www.Huffingtonpost.com/emilie-davidson-hoyt/sugar-skincare_b_2133060.html.

We go through seasons and our skin is exposed to the elements of the weather; it does not matter if you live in a warm or cold climate, seasons do affect your skin.  Sugar makes an excellent natural exfoliant for body scrubs, helps to exfoliate dead skin and reveal a glowing healthy skin.  Incorporating oils in the scrubs eliminates the need to use a lotion after showering with the sugar scrub.

Brown sugar is softer than granulated sugar (also known as turbinado sugar) it can be used on the face and sensitive skin.  Sugar scrubs will not clog pores and is non-abrasive.  It helps to prevent acne, blackheads and whiteheads.

Scrubs should only be used two to three times a week.

Are scrubs part of your bathing routine?
