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. Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid, which is important in keeping your skin vibrant and healthy. Brown sugar gives you younger and fresher looking skin by supporting cell turnover. It also helps to improve appearance and offers support to aging skin.
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.
Exfoliation is an essential step in having a clear complexion. A good scrub will remove the top layer of dead skin cells, encouraging the production of new, healthy cells.
