Who doesn’t love sugar? But something that you may not know is that sugar is one of the most natural things you can put on your body as a beautifying agent. When I attended college for massage therapy, I remember them telling me, “You don’t want to put anything on your body that you could not eat if you had to.” Till this day this has stuck with me. Sugar is one of many natural body treatments.
Sugar is extremely versatile, and may be used as a beauty product in many different ways, including excess hair removal, exfoliation, and moisturization. One of the most common sugar beauty products is a sugar scrub. A sugar scrub is a body treatment that is designed to exfoliate the skin, removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells. Exfoliating the dead skin cells leaves your skin soft and smooth. The sugar scrub is in fact the gentlest type of body scrub, but not the only one capable of great skin benefits. Other common body treatment scrubs that people love to use include; sea salt, coffee grounds, rice bran, and oatmeal.
