Unveiling the Beauty Benefits of Sugar
Found in most households and commonly indulged in, sugar is a natural marvel with surprising benefits for your skin. Concentrated in sugarcane, a genus Saccharum of giant grass species, sugar has been harvested in tropical climates for centuries.
Natural humectant properties make sugar a skin-friendly ingredient, pulling moisture from the environment directly into the skin. This aids in skin hydration when incorporated into skincare products. Notably, sugar contains glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), renowned for its skin-penetrating abilities and stimulation of cell rejuvenation. This process results in a fresher and more youthful appearance.
Glycolic acid, commonly used to treat sun-damaged and aging skin, should be applied cautiously to sensitive skin types. Products usually contain concentrations below 10% to avoid irritation. AHAs and glycolic acids primarily exfoliate dead skin cells, necessitating moisturizer application to prevent skin dryness.
When selecting a sugar scrub, opt for finely ground sugar granules to prevent tears and scratches on the skin's surface. Raw sugar, particularly suited for body use, offers gentle exfoliation without causing harm.
