Homemade sugar scrub is the most natural way to soften, exfoliate and to freshen up the skin. Sugar is a natural sweetener that can also be used as a natural beauty regimen. Its fine texture gently exfoliates the skin without leaving harmful residue that can clog the pores. It has moisturizing properties that prevents the skin from drying.
Homemade sugar scrub can help reverse early signs of aging. Exposure from pollution, dirt, stress and sun’s ultra violet rays damage the skin cells. This leads to skin dullness and develops early signs of aging like fine lines and uneven skin tone. Homemade sugar scrub creates a gentle abrasion to even out the skin tone. It removes accumulated dead and damaged skin cells caused by sun exposure and pollution. The gentle massaging application of homemade sugar scrub on the skin enhances blood circulation. This increases collagen production and skin cell regeneration to prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Homemade sugar scrub prevents acne, whiteheads, blackheads, breakouts and other skin blemishes. Excess oil, dirt and dead skin cells clog the pores. This becomes a good feeding ground for bacteria which develops into acne, blackheads or whiteheads. Skin exfoliation using homemade sugar scrub removes dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil without drying the skin. It is tough on cleansing the skin while keeping its natural moisture. It increases the flow of oxygen and other nutrients on the skin to heal acne and other skin problems from the inside out. The moisturizing effect of homemade sugar scrub can decrease the symptoms of skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis.
