3 Reasons Why SUGAR Scrubs Are Superior.
So, over the years there has been a LOT of hype over coffee and salt scrubs, but little did we know that sugar is by far the more beneficial ingredient (it's also present in nearly every other scrub too!), but why?
Here are our 3 reasons why we think SUGAR is the superior ingredient when it comes to choosing a body or face scrub!
1) It Retains Moisture!
Sugar is a humectant, which means that it naturally retains moisture from the environment to ensure that your skin is left hydrated throughout the day.
Combined with our 100% natural mixture of oils, our Charcoal and Peppermint Body Scrub will leave your skin smooth, soft and supple. In fact, you may even find that your other skincare products will work more effectively after using our sugar scrub, because exfoliated skin unclogs pores in order to allow them to retain more moisture!
2) It'll Make Your Skin Glow!
Sugar is a natural source of Glycolic Acid. Glycolic Acid penetrates the layers of the skin and breaks down the 'glue' which bonds skin cells, encouraging cell turnover to generate younger, fresher looking skin. It's also effective and non-irritating on sensitive skin and is typically used to treat sun-damaged and aging skin too!
As well as making an excellent exfoliant, sugar’s Glycolic acid contents help to maintain your skin’s equilibrium. Which means that your skin won’t become too dry or too oily, so you’re left with a naturally radiant glow all day!
Note: exfoliating typically removes the top layer of skin, so it is important to follow up with sunscreen to avoid damage to newly tender skin, when going out in sunny climates.
3) It's Great For All Skin Types!
Sugar is an incredible abrasive ingredient in a body or face scrub due to the fact that it's rough enough to scrub away even the toughest dead skin cells, yet gentle enough for soft and sensitive skin. This is because sugar actually melts away upon contact with water, so you do not have to worry about over-scrubbing or leaving a mess on your shower floor.
The beauty of sugar is that you can use it before you shower, for an even tougher scrub, or during your shower for a gentle, yet exfoliating scrub.
