There never seems to be enough time to pamper yourself. You’re running all around making sure the world doesn’t fall apart but sometimes you just want to take a break and get yourself a sugar scrub treatment. If you aren’t sure what sugar scrubs are then you are certainly missing out!
A sugar scrub is a compound that contains sugar to help give you beautiful skin. But wait 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.
Who would’ve guessed?
One of the best things about sugar scrubs is that you can make your own and you can make them in a variety of scents!
And you aren’t regulated to some basic scents like grape or strawberry. No, no, no!
You can get really creative with your sugar scrub scents and I’ve compiled a list of 11 of my favorite ones.
