The Benefits Of Sugar In Your Skincare

 

A sweet treat for your skin...Sugar and your skincare routine

 

It sounds contradictive, but we are not talking about a diet high in sugar or rubbing a glazed doughnut on your face. Instead, incorporating natural sugar enriched skincare products into your beauty routine.

 

Sugar has gotten a bad rap, but when it comes to skincare, sugar is a crucial topical ingredient that can offer many “sweet benefits,” especially when it comes to Summer skincare.

 

Harness Hydration

Who would have thought that sugar can help your skin to retain hydration? Well, it can! You see, sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it maintains and preserves moisture from the environment into the skin. Hence, when you use skincare products containing natural sugar, not only do they hydrate your skin, but they also encourage cellular turnover, revealing a younger- brighter complexion.

 

A Must Have Moisturizer For Hydrating Skin

Are you looking for the sweet secret to hydrating skin? Try our Refresh Cream Gel Moisturizer, which features a unique water-binding plant sugar technology: Plant-derived xylitylglucoside, anhydroxylitol, and xylitol to keep your skin hydrated all day by drawing in moisture from the air.

 

Amazing Anti-aging Benefits

Raw sugar is a source of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). A natural glycolic acid is excellent at treating sun-damaged, aging skin on the face. Sugar offers some amazing exfoliation benefits by removing built-up layers of dead skin cells, promoting elasticity, and boosting suppleness.

 

Supple Soft Skin From Sugar

Combine natural sugar with nourishing oils to create a DIY body sugar scrub. You can add before or during bathing to revitalize and nourish the skin. Leaving behind lasting hydration and a velvety soft finish.

 

Kissable Soft Lips

Our lips have poor barrier function. They also do not have any melanin in them, putting them at risk of burning and chapping in the summer. To help keep your lips kiss ably soft, consider a mild sugar lip scrub. The glycolic acid in sugar is perfect for breaking down and gently removing flaky, dry skin. And to seal in moisture, do not forget to apply a lip balm after!

 

Balances Out Your Skin tone

In the summer, our skin tends to produce more oil, leading to clogged pores and even breakouts. Sugar’s AHA balances out the skin’s equilibrium – it is a must for balancing your skin’s oil production without over-drying.  

  

How Sugar Can Get You Bikini Ready

Yes, sugar is a must for getting us bikini ready, as it a safer option to remove unwanted body hair. Think of it as a natural, environmentally alternative to traditional waxing. And there is a name for this process; it is called Sugaring.  

 

So, what the heck is Sugaring? Sugaring is an all-natural approach to removing unwanted hair by applying a mixture of sugar, water, and lemon juice to the skin and then peeling it off with the hair.

 

The Benefits Of Sugaring vs. Waxing

  • When Sugaring the cooled paste is applied against the hair growth and removed with hair growth in quick, small pulls vs. a hot wax that is applied with hair growth and removed against hair growth.
  • Hurts less than traditional waxing.
  • There is minimal redness.
  • You can apply the sugar paste to a larger area at once, as it does not harden as wax does.
  • Less hair breakage with Sugaring, which means a smaller potential for ingrown hair.
  • There are no chemicals. 
  • Perfect for sensitive skin.
  • You can easily remove any leftover sugar with just water and some soap.
