If you want stellar skin, you should indulge in the sweet side of life and use brown sugar as a natural scrub for your face and body. This sweet grain packs a powerful component called glycolic acid which is commonly used in beauty products to fight acne. Without harming our skin, the super small and soft particles work together to break down the stuff that helps dead skin cells form and reveal smooth and radiant skin. Brown sugar is also a humectant, so it draws in moisture and stores it for our driest moments. Simply apply the sugar to damp skin, rub gently in a circular motion and voila you’re on your way to glowing skin!
