While Salt scrubs are sometimes dangerous to your skin as the size of the grain can cause microscopic tears, since brown sugar has smaller particles, it is gentler and safer. Brown sugar can also be used as an exfoliator on your face or for sensitive skin because it is softer than regular sugars. However, it is also strong enough to scrub away dead skin cells and make way for the healthier, glowing skin to show through.
Brown sugar contains glycolic acid, that fights bacteria. Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid, which is important in keeping your skin vivacious and healthy. Brown sugar gives you younger and fresher looking skin by breaking down glue-bonded skin cells which supports cell turnover. It also helps to improve sun damage and offers support to aging skin.
Certain exfoliators can leave your skin dry and dull. Brown sugar is a natural humectant so it absorbs moisture from your environment and deposits it into your skin. Hydrating and conditioning, brown sugar helps to keep the moisture locked in. It also guards your skin against destructive toxins and keeps it healthy, nourished and glowing.
