What are the benefits of sugar scrubs?
Sugar makes an amazing abrasive ingredient in scrubs. It's a natural humectant, so it retains moisture and ensures skin is kept hydrated, making it ideal for delicate and sensitive skin, especially because it melts away upon contact with water. Sugar is also known to be a pure, natural source of Glycolic Acid, also known as an AHA, which helps to break down dead, flaky skin and helps support cell turnover. It's extremely effective at treating mature skin while still being gentle and non-irritating on sensitive skin. Combined with nourishing oils, sugar scrubs can be used before or during bathing for a thorough exfoliating treatment that leaves skin smooth, soft, and supple. You might even find that your skincare products work more effectively on exfoliated skin, as pores are unclogged and able to retain more moisture. Getting rid of dry, dead skin cells helps to reveal smoother skin.
What's in it? Carefully fused with white cane sugar, lime, organic coconut oil. Ok so here's the 411:
There's nothing more luxurious than scooping out a handful of a fresh, fruity body scrub, but did you know that many mainstream body scrubs can be full of nasty ingredients that might do more harm than good? Mainstream scrubs can be too harsh on the skin, containing irritating ingredients that can leave the skin dry, stripped of their natural oils, not to mention the extremely environmentally dangerous plastic microbeads which end up in our waterways and are consumed by marine life. If you use lotions, sunscreen, and body oils, the pores on your skin can become clogged with oil build-up. Regularly exfoliating your skin once or twice a week helps to speed up the skin's regeneration process, removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores to refresh, smooth, and polish skin.
