3 WAYS SUGAR IS GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN
While sugary treats may taste delicious, they are generally not good for your teeth, and they are certainly not the ideal way to maintain a toned figure. But did you know that sugar is a great ingredient to use in skin care products?
Sugar provides three important benefits when used in skin care products:
- It is a natural humectant. As a result, skin care products containing sugar will hydrate your skin and preserve whatever moisture is already present.
- Sugar is a great source of glycolic acid, which breaks down the bonds between skin cells to facilitate cell turnover. This helps you achieve younger looking skin.
- The small size of sugar particles makes it an effective exfoliant. As a result, many exfoliating body scrubs contain sugar instead of salt. There are several benefits to using sugar in scrubs rather than salt. Sugar particles are gentler than salt and due to sugar’s humectant properties, these scrubs are more hydrating than salt scrubs.
To achieve the best results with your skin care regimen, it is best to use products which contain higher quality materials than can be obtained over-the-counter. At Natures Bath & Body, we offer a wide range of sugar scrubs to help keep your skin looking young and beautiful.
