Top 5 Benefits Of Sugar Scrubs For Your Skin

I. Exfoliation

Exfoliation is an often misunderstood term. Exfoliation is the process of gradually removing the top layer of dead skin to allow for new, healthy skin growth. Sugar scrubs are an excellent exfoliant, ranging from small to large granules, allowing you to customize to fit your exfoliation needs. Extremely rough skin? Try our shea butter scub. Sensitive gentle skin? You need this.

II. A Natural Source Of Glycolic Acid (AHA)

Glycolic acid is considered the holy grail for effective exfoliation. Glycolic acid is found naturally in sugar and in our products. Alpha Hydroxy Acid(AHA) penetrates the skin and breaks down the glue that bonds skin cells, increasing cell turnover and healthy regrowth, generating fresh, younger-looking skin. AHA has been found to help with skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Melasma, Excema and Seborrheic keratosis. Gycolic acid can transfer water molecules from the air into skin tissue, greatly increasing the moisturizing effects of a sugar scrub. Studies also show that this incredible natural chemical can help increase collagen production, a vital structural protein that helps skin remain firm and lessens wrinkling. 

III. Clears & Brightens Skin

Removing the dead and old layer of your skin allows for new, healthy skin to grow. This helps create a more radiant complexion, improving your confidence and keeping your skin healthy. The removal of the top layer of skin also cleans the skin, removing potentially dangerous bacteria off the top layer and allowing a new, healthy layer of skin to grow. Moisturized, clear skin is one of the key essences of health and sugar scrubs help you get there, one scrubbing session at a time. 

IV. The Feeling Of Sugar Exfoliation

This one might sound obvious, but until you've experienced fine granules of sugar and healing oils rubbing gently across your skin, you won't understand the feeling of sugar scrub exfoliation. Warm water caresses your body while gentle sugar cleanses your skin is truly a surreal experience, one you might often find on a luxury spa day. Gods & Grit wants you to have this soothing experience more often, enjoying healthier skin and a spa-like experience daily. 

V. Infuses Well With Other Healing Oils

The beauty of having an incredible  sugar scrub exfoliate and open your pores allows us to infuse our products with powerful healing oils that help increase the skin's moisture content and improve its health. Coconut oil has been found to aid in moisturization, reducing inflammation, and even helping to heal wounds. Grape seed oil moisturizes, tightens skin, lightens dark circles, and even can prevent sun damage. Sunflower oil's emollient properties helps your skin retain its moisture and is high in vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps protect skin cells from harmful UV radiation. All of our sugar scrubs contain other healing properties.
