Exfoliating Sugar Scrubs

What are sugar scrubs and why use them?

When gently massaged onto the body, sugar scrubs work to exfoliate the skin, removing debris and damaged and dead skin cells from the lips and body, unclogging pores and restoring dull skin. Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid and alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), active ingredients that can help remove dry, flaky skin cells caused by overexposure to environmental stresses. AHA’s play a role in increasing keratinocytes, supporting skin repair and preventing keratosis pilaris, a condition that blocks hair follicles, causing bumps to develop. AHA’s are natural humectants, aiding moisture retention and keeping skin hydrated and healthy.
