This Amazing 4-Step Sugar Scrub Helps With Cell Turnover

January 12, 2018 By

Sugar is often touted as the worst enemy when it comes to your diet…


It’s not only waging war on your waistline, it’s making your skin look older and duller.

Thankfully, if you apply sugar to your skin, it can help reverse some of the issues that eating it can cause!

Sugar is an excellent topical exfoliant that will naturally remove dry skin and brighten your complexion.


Not only that, it contains AHAs, which help promote cell turnover and gives you younger looking skin.

And to keep that youthful-looking skin moisturized, sugar is a natural humectant. That means it absorbs moisture, so when it’s on your skin, it helps to lock it in.

Now, to get that smooth, bright, young-looking skin, you can make a DIY sugar scrub.

It’s quick, easy to make, and so effective!

Here’s how it’s done:


  1. Take ½ cup of sugar and put it in a container with a lid. Use raw sugar for body scrubs, and brown sugar for face scrubs. The size of the grain will determine how gentle or rough the exfoliant will be.
  2. Add ½ cup of your choice of oil. I like olive oil for its moisturizing and antibacterial properties.
  3. Add a few drops of essential oil. My favorite for this recipe is vanilla for its relaxing, mood-boosting qualities.
  4. Mix all the ingredients together until well blended.


You’re done! When you’re ready to use, scoop a small amount out of the jar and gently rub into your skin for a few minutes. Rinse, and enjoy your soft, smooth skin! You’ll want to use this once or twice a week at most to avoid over-exfoliating.

Now that you know this recipe, you won’t have any sugar left to eat — you’ll be using it to get youthful, glowing skin!
