VEGAN Friendly. Hand made by Zabel Designs
Sugar scrubs are amongst some of the most popular types of scrubs because they're less abrasive than salt, yet are extremely effective for the skin. It's a natural humectant, which means it actually draws moisture from the environment and delivers it to the skin. Because of its humectant properties, sugar is great for introducing moisture to your skin and keeping it there! Sugar also happens to be a natural source of glycolic acid, which encourages new cell turnover by breaking down the lipids that hold dead skin cells together.
- The main goal of using a body scrub is to exfoliate dead skin cells that make the skin dry and dull. By removing the layer of dead skin, you're allowing new skin cells to receive more oxygen and moisture which leads to healthier skin, in general.
- Body scrubs are also beneficial at cleaning away dirt and pollution debris from your pores, which can help eliminate the chances of acne and breakouts.
- Dirt and dead skin cells can also block your skin from absorbing skin care products properly. After applying a body scrub, your skin will be able to efficiently absorb moisturizers, leaving your skin hydrated and healthy.
- The process of applying a body scrub is also beneficial! The circular, massaging motions you use actually boosts circulation and increases your blood flow, which helps drain the lymph nodes of toxins.
- Body scrubs can be used before shaving to remove dirt and soften the body hair, making razor burn less likely.
