The Benefits of Sugar Scrubs
Beyond it’s ability to pamper you at an extremely inexpensive cost, a sugar scrub is a good choice to exfoliate and smooth your skin if it’s extremely sensitive. A scrub can be used all over the body, not just the face.
When making a sugar scrub yourself, another benefit will be it contains minerals that are found in sugar cane that are good for your body. Along with the glycolic acid found in natural sugars, the minerals can be protective to your skin keeping toxins out.
