Why are DIY sugar scrubs so fantastic?

Sugar scrubs are great for removing dead skin. Fine sugar grounds gently exfoliate the skin, relieving it of dirt and grime that clog our pores. Sugar is a suitable ingredient for most skin types, so you can use it on your, dry, oily, or combination skin. 

Brown sugar is especially beneficial for your skin, acting as an antioxidant. A study on mice in 2009 noticed that the nonsugar fraction of brown sugar prevents chronic skin aging, increases skin thickness, and prevents wrinkles. 

So, when you're switching to sugar alternatives in your diet, keep your pantry's sugar load for the following DIY sugar scrubs...

Other Ingredients you'll need may include carrier oils like grapeseed, jojoba, olive, or coconut oil. You can use essential oils or fragrant waters, like rose water, to enhance the scent you're after. 

When to use your sugar scrub

Exfoliate with your DIY sugar scrub recipe two to three times a week. You can use it on your entire body, while in the shower, or on specific areas like your feet or face. Rub gently so as not to harm, over-exfoliate, or irritate your skin. 

Store your scrub in a tightly sealed jar, away from direct sunlight.
