The Benefits of Sugar Scrubs

Why Sugar Is Good For Your Skin

When it comes to your daily skin routine, many will admit to moisturising and exfoliating their faces, but the rest of the body often doesn’t get a look-in. While the face often seems like a top priority due to it being on show, the rest of the body needs exfoliating with a regular sugar scrub as much as your face does.

There are many factors that influence what sort of mood your skin is in; your diet and hormones can affect it, as well as the environment that you’re in. Overexposure to the sun on a really windy day can wreak havoc on your skin cells, leading to flakiness and damage.

Without a regular dose of exfoliating, your skin pores can get clogged, resulting in moisture being unable to get to the deeper layers. This can lead to hard, dry and flaky skin cells, and tired and dull looking skin. In order for your skin to be as healthy and smooth as possible, exfoliating regularly with a naturally abrasive sugar scrub exfoliant is incredibly important.

By frequently exfoliating once or twice a week, your skin will regenerate much quicker, unclogging your pores, removing dead skin cells and revealing fresh, healthy and smooth skin. It also helps to reduce the appearance of large pores, and prevent ingrown hairs, as well as making hair removal a breeze, which is a super bonus.

When it comes to your daily moisturising routine, regularly exfoliating with a sugar scrub will allow it to work more effectively too. It's like a hug in a scrub! Check out our sugar scrub here.

One of the best ingredients in an exfoliating scrub is sugar. Its texture makes it a great abrasive, and because sugar naturally retains moisture, it ensures that skin is kept fully hydrated.

It dissolves when it comes in to contact with water, which makes it an excellent ingredient for sensitive and delicate skin. In addition, sugar contains a natural component known as glycolic acid.

This is a fantastic ingredient to integrate in to your skin care regime because it breaks down old and dead skin cells and encourages fresh cells to produce. Have you tried our Invigorating Body Scrub?
