Benefits of Exfoliation
Our skin is exposed to various harmful factors on a daily basis, such as UV rays, environmental pollution, weather conditions, electronic devices, and cosmetics. As a result, the outer layers of skin cells tend to age rapidly. To combat this, exfoliating is an essential step in any skincare routine.
Exfoliation aids in the swift removal of dead skin cells and stimulates the growth of new skin cells. As a result, the skin becomes smoother, eliminating roughness and enhancing the absorption of nutrients effectively.
Benefits of Sugar and Honey
These ingredients are readily available in your kitchen, and the best part is that they are gentle on the skin. Even those with sensitive skin can safely use them.
Brown sugar, in particular, is abundant in minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron. The fine sugar particles work as exfoliants, removing dark spots and tightening pores. This leads to a radiant and smooth complexion while providing a protective barrier against external toxins that can harm your skin.
Honey is a natural exfoliator as well. Not only does it exfoliate, but honey also helps to minimize the appearance of dull skin patches, revealing new skin cells and promoting a naturally bright complexion.
