What is a Sugar Scrub and why you should use one

First things first let’s answer the first question. What is a sugar scrub?
A sugar scrub is a total body treatment that helps to get rid of dry skin. These scrubs come in many scents and forms. The ingredients should remain similar in all of them. Sugar, vitamins, fruit oils, along with other moisturizing ingredients are what make up a sugar scrub. The sugar granules can vary in size for different degrees of exfoliation needs. The larger the granule is the stronger the exfoliation results will be.
Using a sugar scrub properly can improve your skin’s appearance and texture. The optimal time to apply the sugar scrub to the skin is when the skin is thoroughly wet like in the shower. You rub the scrub into the skin applying light pressure. Allow the scrubs benefits to be absorbed into the skin for a few minutes then rinse off with warm water.
The effective results of a sugar scrub stem from the rough texture of the granules. This rough texture helps to peel away dry and dead skin cells. Once the dry and dead layers of skin are gone, the healthy, smooth skin underneath can shine through. Moisturizing ingredients in sugar scrubs are just an added benefit that helps keep the skin soft and hydrated.
So why use a sugar scrub? Using a sugar scrub is wonderful for maintaining healthy, supple skin. Exfoliation is especially important during the dry winter months when we don’t realize our bodies are losing moisture. Beyond the visual benefits, the sugar scrub allows you to pamper yourself.
