Sugar makes an amazing abrasive ingredient in scrubs. It's a natural humectant, which means it retains moisture and ensures skin is kept hydrated, making it ideal for delicate and sensitive skin, especially because it melts away upon contact with water.
Sugar is also known to be a pure, natural source of Glycolic Acid, also known as an AHA, which helps to break down dead, flaky skin and help support cell turnover. It's extremely effective at treating mature skin while still being gentle and non-irritating on sensitive skin. Combined with nourishing oils, sugar scrubs can be used before or during bathing for a thorough exfoliating treatment that leaves skin smooth, soft and supple.
You might even find that your skin care products work more effectively on exfoliated skin, as pores are unclogged and able to retain more moisture. Getting rid of dry, dead skin cells helps to reveal smoother skin which can also prolong the life of your fake tan.
