Sugar scrub is a completely new and unique cleansing cosmetic product. Its advantage is that it is a natural hypoallergenic product suitable for every skin type.
Crystal sugar based abrasive cosmetics are ideal for removing stretch marks and cellulite. The finest granules of granulated sugar have unique properties: during the application of the scrub, they slowly dissolve, penetrate into the smallest pores and deeply clean them. The greatest benefit of such cosmetics is the excellent saturation of the skin with air and water, which penetrate into the pores along with grains of sugar.
The main competitor of sugar scrub is salt cosmetics. Like sugar, salt has the form of a crystal, but the sugar base is much better and safer than salt, because salt dries the skin.
In addition to a beneficial effect on the skin, sugar scrub can also benefit the family budget, since such a tool is very easy to make on your own, at home and from simple components available in every home. Properly formulated home cosmetics has excellent reviews from consumers of all age groups and can compete with store cosmetics.
A scrub sold in a store is a cosmetic product that includes not only natural elements such as sugar or oils, but also preservatives to extend its shelf life, as well as dyes and flavors to make the product more attractive.
When choosing a sugar-based face and body scrub, there are several important points to consider:
- The contents of almost any cosmetics can cause an allergic reaction in the form of redness, peeling or rash. It is very important to familiarize yourself with the composition of the product you like, check for potential allergens.
- Peeling with a scrub is, first of all, a mechanical effect on the skin. In the case of sugar crystals, this effect is similar to applying neat, shallow scratches. That is why such a remedy is dangerous for people whose blood vessels are located in the upper layers of the epidermis. Possible bleeding.
- Too sensitive skin can also suffer significant damage from acute saccharines. People with such skin should choose a product with a gentle abrasive component.
- Sugar peeling is not recommended for young girls and boys with problem skin, acne, and acne during an exacerbation of skin diseases. At this time, the skin is too sensitive to mechanical stress, it can be damaged and infected.
- In the presence of injuries, scratches, burns, it is better not to use cosmetics at all. Healing injuries requires special care and rest, otherwise complications such as scarring and the appearance of keloid scars are possible.
Recommendations for use
It is very important to choose, buy and apply exfoliating products correctly. The first thing you definitely need to pay attention to is the zone for which you need to use a specific scrub. For various parts of the body, abrasives of varying roughness are used. So, for example, for the face they use very soft, safe substances for delicate skin. Sugar for such cosmetics is specially crushed and ground to avoid injury. Such a tool is absolutely not suitable for the skin of the body. For hips and feet, on the contrary, the coarsest varieties of granulated sugar are chosen. In these parts of the body, the most severe effect is necessary to obtain the maximum exfoliating or anti-cellulite (massage) effect.
Properly applying the scrub begins with the proper preparation for the cleansing procedure. The greatest effect of such a product will be if you use it on well-steamed skin, so the best moment for peeling comes immediately after a shower, steam room or bath.
In the process of reading the skin with such a cosmetic product, the upper layer of the epidermis is removed, so do not wash your face with a scrub before going to the beach or the street. The skin should have time to “rest” and “renew”. This also applies to the immediate application of decorative cosmetics. It simply penetrates the pores, clogs them. This can lead to infection and the appearance of acne.
Excessive use of exfoliating cosmetics is also unacceptable, you need to use it no more than twice a week.
The best time of day to clean your skin with abrasive products is evening. Over night, the skin will have time to recover enough and will be more resistant to exposure to the sun, cosmetics or wind.
For sugar scrub, the correct technique for applying it is very important. Since sugar crystals have sharp angles, you need to start with smooth, gentle massage movements. After some time, the sugar particles begin to dissolve - at this time the massage can become more intense. Then you can use special washcloths and peeling brushes.
After the procedure, you need to moisturize the skin with a light, non-greasy cream.
You can make a good sugar scrub with your own hands. The main advantage of handmade cosmetics is that you can independently choose the components in such a way that the cosmetics possesses exactly those useful properties that are necessary for you.
For delicate skin
The delicate skin of the face is daily exposed to the greatest influence from the outside: cold or heat, a dry wind that wears dust or the scorching sun, decorative cosmetics that clogs pores and dehydrates the skin - all this leads to premature aging. In order to maintain youthfulness and beauty of the skin, you need to choose a gentle, gentle exfoliating agent that will not only cleanse, but also moisturize, tone and tighten it.

The remaining components of the scrub should meet age-related needs and be suitable for the type of skin. The basis of such a cosmetic product for teenage oily skin can be grapes. Grape scrub perfectly tones the skin, nourishes it well with vitamins and gives a blush. However, it is worth remembering that grapes contain a large amount of acids, so it can cause discomfort when used on unhealthy skin.

Making a scrub at home is quite simple. The selected base must be brought to a boil and cooled - this will prevent the appearance of pathogenic bacteria in it and extend the shelf life of the future product. Pour sugar in a chilled base and mix lightly. If desired, you can add an ampoule of vitamin B or E - they will make the skin more elastic and resistant to weather phenomena. In winter, vitamin D can also be used, since there is little sun in winter.
