Benefits of Brown Sugar

Natural food items easily available in the kitchen cabinet have been used for beauty home remedies down the ages. Brown sugar is one of them. It is inexpensive and readily available in homes.

Benefits of Using Brown Sugar for Glowing Skin

1. Scrub

Brown sugar is popularly used as scrub for exfoliating skin. It is a source of glycolic acid which is the smallest alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). Because of its smallest size, these molecules can penetrate deep into the skin. It loosens the bonds of skin cells, and promotes new cell growth. Sugar facial is better than artificial glycolic treatments. Brown sugar exfoliates dead cells from the outer skin.


2. Moisturizer

Brown sugar is a natural humectant. It draws moisture from the environment and transfers it to the skin. It serves as a natural moisturize which keeps the skin soft and at the same time hydrated. Raw sugar is coarse. Brown sugar is gentler than salt, and softer than granulated sugar.

3. Radiant Glow

As brown sugar exfoliates dead cells from the outer skin and hydrates the skin, it gives the skin a shiny glow. It works to prevent and assuage problems of tanned skin. It can be applied on legs, back, and shoulders.

4. Removes Scars

Application of brown sugar helps to lighten skin and diminish the scars. Glycolic acid present in brown sugar is known to make the skin fairer. It also controls the melanin formation.

5. Prevents Acne

Brown sugar naturally exfoliates, and removes dead cells. It hydrates the skin and promotes healthy skin cleansing and circulation. Those prone to acne can opt for brown sugar facials to prevent acne and pimples, and to capture that perfect selfie with glowing skin. Brown sugar facial mask also has anti-bacterial properties.
