Here’s a great natural way to pamper your skin- a homemade sugar scrub. The combination of oil and sugar in this recipe exfoliates your skin, seals in moisture, reduces clogged pores, removes fine lines, and leaves your skin smooth and soft.
Regular exfoliation allows face masks and other nourishing creams to penetrate deeper into the skin. White sugar, in particular, is excellent for exfoliating delicate skin as it helps remove dead skin cells gently. Plus, being a humectant, it adsorbs moisture from the air to hydrate your skin.
An exfoliating scrub should also include a moisturizing ingredient to prevent skin irritation and dryness. Extra-virgin olive oil is used in this recipe.
In addition to moisturizing, it helps fade blemishes and improves skin texture. The antioxidants in this oil provide anti-aging benefits. Moreover, it is good for all skin types, including acne-prone skin.
Essential oils add a nice, soothing fragrance that promotes rejuvenation. Orange essential oil, for example, has a fresh citrus smell that calms your mind and relieves stress. In addition, it soothes dry, irritated, acne-prone skin; increases blood flow; and promotes collagen production for skin repair.
