We know… we know! Sugar has a bad rap and so seeing it in the same sentence with “good” sort of raises eyebrows. It’s bad for your teeth, you should definitely avoid it if you want to lose weight, but yes, did you know that sugar is a great ingredient to use in skincare products?
Check out their benefits.
1. Sugar is a natural humectant. This means they are designed to prevent water loss and protect the outer layer of skin from becoming dry and parched.
2. To achieve younger-looking skin, glycolic acid is necessary and sugar is a natural source for it. Glycolic acid penetrates the skin and breaks down the “glue” that bonds skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresher, younger-looking skin aaannd who doesn’t want that?
3. Sugar’s small particles make an excellent topical exfoliant and are used in a number of body scrubs to exfoliate dead surface skin cells and reveal the glowing, healthy-looking skin underneath.
Yaaass b! Get a sugar scrub and you are definitely good to go! Don’t forget to moisturize after exfoliating with the scrub.
