Ingredient Spotlight | Brown Sugar

 


The fall season is finally here which means cozy nights, trips to the pumpkin patch, leaves changing color, and the list goes on. One of our favorite fall ingredients definitely has to be decadent brown sugar. Not only does this sweet sugar go into some of our favorite fall desserts, but also it will work wonders for your skin! This is an easy and inexpensive alternative to pricey exfoliators and skin treatments.

Let’s start off by breaking down some key ingredients found in brown sugar. Brown sugar is high in glycolic acid, which helps to fight bacteria. Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxyl acid and that makes it great as an exfoliator, gets blood flowing to the skin, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! It also acts as a natural humectant, which basically means that it will absorb moisture from your surroundings and absorb it into your skin, and this prevents your skin from drying out.

Some salt scrubs can leave micro tears in the skin- NOT GOOD! Brown sugar particles are much smaller, gentler, and safer (and did we mention it will smell heavenly?). It will scrub away dead skin cells and leave skin looking lustrous and radiant! What’s not to like?

We love brown sugar so much that we incorporate it into our Lemongrass and Cedar Sugar Scrub. Both of this sweet smelling scrubs are crafted with brown sugar to gently exfoliate skin, remove dead skin cells, and reveal the smooth skin that lies beneath these dead cells. This scrubs smell heavenly and will leave your skin looking healthier in no time. Our Lemongrass and Cedar Sugar Scrub  can be used all over your body so don’t be afraid to go crazy!

Until next time.
