Why Use a Sugar Scrub?
Regular exfoliating can help improve a dull skin tone. Many believe that a sugar scrub not only improves the brightness their skin, but leaves it feeling baby soft. Because they scrubs away a bit of the stratum corneum, the user should follow up with a sunscreen, especially if a harsher oil is used. Always test a new oil on an area of the back of your hand before testing it on your face or other sensitive areas of the body.
Since sugar scrub is rubbed into the skin, it’s considered a physical exfoliator. The AHA in the sugar dissolves the protein that keeps a dead cell hanging on to the surface of the skin. Homemade sugar scrubs are gentle enough not to remove too much more than the dead skin cells.
How To Use a Sugar Scrub
The homemade sugar scrub should be smoothed over the face and neck. The fingertips should work in tiny circles across the neck and the face and up to the hairline. The fingers should have some pressure but not too much.
The scrub should be massaged in for a minute or two. Then, a wash cloth should be dipped in with warm to hot water and wrung out. The cloth should be as soft as possible so that the skin is not irritated or damaged. Hold the cloth over the face. Pat and rub the homemade sugar scrub off the face and repeat until all the scrub is gone from both the face and the wash cloth.
How Long Will My Sugar Scrub Last?
If stored in a clean and air-tight container a Sugar Scrub should last up to three months. Be sure to use only clean hands when removing some Sugar Scrub so as not to introduce any bacteria or contaminants to your jar.
