A sugar scrub is a compound that contains sugar to help give you beautiful skin. But wait sugar?

Yes, sugar!

Why does sugar work? Because sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. So when you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives, they’ll actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within.
