Brown Sugar Scrub
Since a brown sugar scrub has smaller particles, it is gentler and safer. Brown sugar can also be used as an exfoliator on your face or for sensitive skin because it is softer than regular sugars. It is also strong enough to scrub away dead skin cells and make way for the healthier, glowing skin to show through.
Brown sugar contains glycolic acid, that fights bacteria. Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxyl acid, which is important in keeping your skin vivacious and healthy. Brown sugar gives you younger and fresher looking skin by breaking down glue-bonded skin cells which supports cell turnover. It also helps to improve sun damage and offers support to aging skin.
Certain exfoliators can leave your skin dry and dull. Brown sugar is a natural humectant so it absorbs moisture from your environment and deposits it into your skin. Hydrating and conditioning, brown sugar helps to keep the moisture locked in. It also guards your skin from destructive toxins and keeps it healthy, nourished and glowing.
Brown sugar is gentler, making it ideal for super-sensitive skin. The benefits of a brown sugar scrub extend not just to the body, but also the scalp. Many women with highly sensitive, dandruff-prone scalps find that a brown sugar scrub prior to washing or treating results in healthier, happier hair.
And one big benefit of a brown sugar scrub – it smells wonderful. It has a very deep, rich smell that can allow you to completely relax and pamper yourself.
