Chances are you’ve seen celebrities and influencers alike posting about sugar scrubs on your timeline. This type of face scrub happens to be trending as of late and with good reason. You’ve likely used a face scrub as part of your skin care routine a time or two. After all, it’s one of the most popular skin care products, up there with facial cleansers, moisturizers, and face masks. But what’s the deal with using sugar scrubs for exfoliation? Keep reading to learn all about this mechanical exfoliant, including how to use a sugar scrub, sugar scrub benefits you need to know about, and our best sugar scrubs to add to your routine.

What is a Sugar Scrub? 

Let’s back up a sec: A face scrub is a skin care product that can be used to mechanically exfoliate dead skin cell build-up from the surface of your skin. And sugar scrubs are a type of face scrub. Typically, they’re formulated with sugar granules, which are used to help physically exfoliate that dead skin cell build-up. Exfoliating with a sugar scrub can help create the appearance of smoother, glowing skin. Just keep in mind that generally, you wouldn’t exfoliate with a sugar scrub every day—consider it a sweet treat for your skin that you’d use a few times a week. That being said, sugar scrubs typically offer gentle yet effective exfoliation.

What are the benefits of using a Sugar Scrub?

If you’re curious about using sugar scrubs in your skin care routine, the following benefits are worth taking note of.

#1: Remove build-up. Like we mentioned, a sugar scrub is a scrub that’s used for mechanical exfoliation. This type of exfoliation removes the top layer of skin cells, per the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), as well as impurities, dirt, and excess oils.

#2: Brighten skin. Not only does exfoliating with a sugar scrub remove build-up from your skin, but it also helps to create a more radiant complexion, as the AAD states the removal of dead cells leaves the skin looking brighter.

#3: Gentle exfoliation. It’s no secret that certain exfoliation options can be harsh on your skin. Sugar scrubs are a gentler exfoliation option, as the sugar granules melt onto your skin for exfoliation that’s kind to your complexion. Love that!

Now that you know all about sugar scrubs and how to use them, you may be wondering how you can incorporate one into your skin care routine. We’ve got you covered! Here’s a step-by-step guide for using a sugar scrub as part of your daily regimen.

Step 1:  Use a facial cleanser

Just as with any skin care routine, you want to start by cleansing your skin of any impurities with a facial cleanser. The Purifying Neem & Gotukola Face Wash is perfect for using with the sugar scrub.

Step 2:  Grab your Sugar Scrub

Once your face is cleansed, it’s time to exfoliate your skin. Follow the steps listed above to remove any dead skin cells with your face scrub. You can include this step in your routine three times a week—more than that could lead to irritation.

Step 3:  Apply a face mask

A sugar scrub isn’t the only skin care product that should be used regularly but not every single day. To give your skin a little extra TLC, you can also use a face mask up to three times a week.

Step 4: Apply a Vitamin C Serum

Using a vitamin C serum can help restore a healthy radiance to your skin. After washing off your face mask, simply apply it to your face and neck, smoothing it over your skin. Looking for a product recommendation? Let us suggest the Concentrated Vitamin C Serum, which contains 20% pure vitamin C. The serum is formulated without water and produced in controlled conditions to limit its exposure to oxygen and maximize its potency.

Step 5:  Use a Facial Moisturiser

Anytime you wash your face, you want to make sure you use a facial moisturizer to replenish any moisture you may have stripped from your skin. This is especially important after using a face scrub and face mask since you will have rinsed off your face multiple times. For your moisturizer, try the Healing Day Cream, which offers intense and continuous hydration, leaving you with fresh, healthy-looking, and mattified skin.
