Sugar Scrubs: 8 Sweet Exfoliators To Make Skin Glow

Exfoliators are brilliant at making skin feel cleansed and smooth, but with so many different varieties and fragrances out there, it's hard to know which gives the best results.

A good place to start is with sugar. Sugar isn't exactly getting good press, but when it comes to finding the perfect polish, sugar-based scrubs can do wonders for adding moisture and boosting skin cell growth.


And if you're going to buy an exfoliator made from the sweet stuff? Try and shop organic.

"Organic brown sugar unlike its refined counter part contains minerals and vitamins such as calcium, magnesium and B complex, " says Margo Marrone, co-founder of The Organic Pharmacy. "It's not only great for removing dead skin but also feeding the skin nutrients at the same time."

So sugar is good for you! When you're not eating it at least...
