Here are some of the benefits of sugar body scrubs:

1. It can helps skin glow naturally because of its fine texture.
2. It won’t clog your pores, preventing you from having icky breakouts.
3. It acts as natural exfoliator that is better than using chemical based products. Despite its grainy feel, sugar in a scrub is gentle enough to be used on the skin and protects against the loss of moisture.
4. Eliminate blemishes and restore balance to the skin’s natural oils.
5. It is really inexpensive
