What are some benefits of a homemade honey sugar scrub?
1. Radiant Skin:
Sugar scrubs are very popular, ever wonder why? Sugar is excellent at exfoliating dry, dead skin cells. When the dead cells are sloughed off, it allows the renewed skin to glow, leaving a brighter complexion. Honey also encourages exfoliation, as it contains a natural source of alpha hydroxy acids that helps with cell regeneration.
Raw honey is antibacterial, which helps get bacteria off skin and assists with skin impurities. Honeys anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties help with skin healing and tissue regeneration. Sugar, when used as a gentle scrub to massage skin, can increase circulation to aid skin healing and cell turnover. Your skin will feel anew!
Honey is the perfect humectant, meaning it has a natural ability to hold onto water. This is why honey is hydrating. It is also loaded with antioxidants, enzymes, and other nutrients that nourish and moisturize skin.
