Sugar has been used in skin care for a very long time as an exfoliator. It is mainly used to create sugar scrubs to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, soften skin and giving it a health glow. As it is all natural it leaves no harmful residue or clog pores. It instead cleanses which can help prevent acne. It is great for sensitive skin, soothing and smoothing dry chapped lips.
