What is a sugar scrub good for?
Sugar scrubs are an exfoliating and hydrating body treatment that is a more gentle alternative to salt scrubs. Once the skin is dry, the therapist applies body lotion, leaving the skin soft and fragrant. The sugar scrub can remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, without causing pain.
Can you use a sugar scrub on your face?
For the face, mix sugar, honey, and a few drops of lemon juice to hydrate, clarify, and reveal softer skin. You only need to use a topical sugar scrub about twice per week. Sugar scrubs are great to use in the winter, as exfoliating the top layer of skin helps moisturizers penetrate more deeply and hydrate longer.
How often should I use a sugar scrub?
“We recommend exfoliating your body one to two times per week for sensitive skin,” says Pink, “two to three times per week for normal skin and three to four times per week for oily skin.” As you massage the scrub into your skin, you’ll unlock the aroma for a sweet and luxurious experience.
Do you use body scrub before or after shower?
