If you’re looking for natural face and body scrubs that are better for you and the planet, it’s time to trade your microbeads for one of the many natural ingredients that will leave your skin soft and glowing.
Consuming too much sugar may make you break out, but using it as a scrub will give you fresh, youthful skin. Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, which helps treat sun damage, protect against the signs of aging and maintain the oil balance of your skin. Sugar is also said to draw moisture from the air into the skin, which help keeps your skin hydrated. If you’re looking for a sweet sugar scrub, try Cake Beauty It’s a Slice Smoothing Brown Sugar Scrub ($32), which will leave your skin supple, soft and smelling like sweet orange and creamy vanilla.
