What are Sugar Scrubs Good For?
Sugar scrubs are one of the most popular skin care products for their ability to exfoliate skin, remove dry patches, and nourish skin cells. Sugar scrubs are versatile and can be used for more than just dry skin. They can also be used as a gentle face scrub or to remove excess oil on the body, including removing makeup or cleaning hands. They are often used at spas to remove the skin’s top layer of dead cells before massage therapy is administered.
How Can Sugar Scrubs Improve Skin?
Sugar scrubs are a popular way for people to exfoliate their skin. Exfoliation is important because it removes dead skin cells that can lead to clogged pores. Sugar scrubs work by gently removing the outer layer of your skin, which then promotes new cell growth. The sugar helps break down oil that has built up on the skin and it also moisturizes the skin at the same time.
