Benefits of using a regular sugar scrub

It’s cold outside and I have just got in from outside and feel like warming up and keeping dry inside my home. If this is your thought too, then you may like to try my Cinnamon Sugar Scrub. Here are some reasons why you should try some soon:

  • Sugar is a humectant, so it draws moisture to your skin.

  • Australian brown sugar has a nice grain size so it’s a perfect, gentle exfoliant

  • Very easy to apply while you have a bath or shower.

  • Glycolic Acid is found in sugar and is an AHA, or alpha-hydroxy acid. AHA is known for its exfoliating properties and for smoothing the skin. It sounds a little frightening but in reality AHA’s can work wonders on skin. It’s naturally occurring and safe to use. Sugar is gentle on skin and brightens skin tone.

  • Gentle exfoliation by regularly using a sugar scrub helps to reduce ingrown hairs that you may experience after hair removal. Regular gentle exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells from the top layer of skin. Skin is constantly changing and revitalising so a sugar scrub can help this process along nicely.

  • It just takes a few tablespoons per bath or shower to make your skin feel smooth, fresh and radiant. Just a small amount goes a long way to making your skin feel revitalised.

  • Use it after a hard days work in the garden and your hands feel rough and dirty use it to gentle cleanse and massage away grime.

  • No nasty microbeads are in my Cinnamon Sugar Scrub to pollute and damage our waterways and fish life.

The cosmetic oils I use in Cinnamon Sugar Scrub are Grapeseed and Wheatgerm both of which help to plump and moisturise skin. The germ or seed of cosmetic grade oils are like the heart of the botanical plant. It’s where new growth and life emerges from in the plant. So when you use cosmetic botanical oils like grapeseed and wheatgerm, you get concentrated nutrients in your skincare. Wheatgerm oil contains vitamin E and is high in omega chain fatty acids. Grapeseed oil is high in fatty acids, vitamins C and E and antioxidants.

The finely ground cinnamon also provides gentle exfoliation while you bathe or shower and has a warm empowering smell. Imagine cinnamon toast! In Ayurvedic medicine it has been used as a tonic for the heart. Cinnamon helps to prevent and fight skin infections, eczema and improves the quality and texture of the skin by way of its antibacterial and antioxidant properties.

My inspirational blend of essential oils includes Mandarin, Certified Organic Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemongrass, Cardamom and Peppermint. I love to use a mix of uplifting essential oils in my Cinnamon Sugar Scrub. It’s true that essential oils are powerful but just the right amount is incorporated into each pouch. It just takes a few drops and when the pouch is open a beautiful aroma will come to your senses. Essential oils are the essence of the fragrance of the plant.
