Today I’m sharing a review of an All Natural Dry Skin Remedy called My Sweet Sugar Scrub.
It’s no joke that winter weather can be cruel on our skin. I usually go through multiple bottles of deep moisture lotion during the months of Nov-Feb and still end up with itchy, splotchy, cracked skin. One of the solutions I’ve found for treating my dry skin starts in the shower.
All Natural Dry Skin Scrub by My Sweet Sugar
My Sweet Sugar, an Etsy shop, was so kind to send me a sample of their 8oz Citrus Explosion Sugar Scrub. There are bits of citrus in the scrub and it smells delicious enough to eat. Annabelle tried, of course, while I was photographing the scrub. I love how each scrub comes with a tiny wooden spoon so you don’t have to dig out a clump while you’re in the shower (or bath). I hate getting things stuck under my nails, so the spoon came in handy.
After using the scrub on my arms and legs, my skin felt smooth and like I had just put on baby oil. I also smelled pretty yummy! The rough spots on my shoulders and the tops of my thighs are now gone. I have been using the scrub on the tops of my feet, which have been dried out, too. You can buy this, or any of her other scrubs, for 20% off using the code: WINTER15.
Pregnant ladies: My Sweet Sugar makes a Baby Belly Scrub! Her site states that it helped to keep the stretch marks away and her thirsty skin replenished while she was pregnant. I definitely want to try it out the next time I am pregnant.
The benefits of using all natural sugar scrubs are amazing. My Sweet Sugar lists the various ways and reasons why one would want to use their handmade scrubs in their product description. Read below five ways that sugar scrubs will help your skin.
1. Skin Moisturizer
Unlike a salt scrub, sugar scrubs do not dry the skin. A sugar scrub is alpha-hydroxy rich. Alpha-hydroxy is an active substance with exfoliating and emollient properties.
2. Will Not Clog Pores
Sugar scrubs will not clog the pores and are safe to use on children. They are healing for individuals who suffer from eczema and psoriasis.
Sugar scrubs are non-abrasive and can be used frequently. They help to restore and moisturize the skin. Sugar is a humectant, which means it cannot draw moisture out of the skin like a salt scrub can.
4. Get An Even Tan
When tanning, sugar scrubs help remove flaky skin on elbows, knees, and feet, giving a more even, all-over tan, especially when using a tanning service.
5. Eliminate Cellulite
Sugar is an excellent choice when choosing ingredients for a cellulite scrub. The granular crystals are wonderful for exfoliating dead cellulite and smoothing out the skin tone.
