Sugaris a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. Sugar's small particles make an excellent topical exfoliant.
- Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid that, when used on skin, breaks down the bonding agents that hold skin cells together, spurring cell turnover and creating younger looking, softer skin.
- Sugar is a humectant, meaning it pulls moisture into the skin from the air. When applying products with sugar to your skin, they help moisturize and preserve hydration within.
- Sugar will slowly dissolve with warm water, so when used in a scrub, your skin is left only with the nourishing base oil. In my sugar scrubs, I use organic coconut oil and organic vitamin E oil as base oils. So after the sugar exfoliates rough, dead skin, it then dissolves leaving moisturized silky smooth skin.
