We have learned that a homemade sugar body scrub is a gentle abrasion that removes dead skin but doesn’t dry out the skin. Sugar is a natural humectant so actually draws moisture into your skin. Sugar crystals are generally finer than salt making them less abrasive. A homemade sugar scrub is better for your skin than a salt scrub because it is gentler on your skin. Sugar Scrubs should be used about once a week to remove all the dead cells and reinvigorate the skin. And always moisturize afterward.
