Try these 5 Unique Sugar Scrubs to restore youthful and smooth skin. We are all going to suffer from dry, damaged and aging skin at some point. But this is not something you have to accept and live with just because your skin gets sun damage, is exposed to free radicals and ages, all of which contribute to dry and dull skin. Start today and take your smooth skin back.
Before diving into a number of unique sugar scrubs to try, we have to talk about one of the most important things to do each day to keep your skin from looking dull, old and dry. Can you guess what that is? Yes, WATER. The one single best thing you can do for your skin is stay well hydrated.
As a fitness coach, among many other things I do and did, I required my clients to drink water. Not soda, sugary drinks or wine, no, plain water to stay hydrated. What do you think everyone, guys and gal’s, started noticing? For one they felt better, had a clear mind and yes, their skin looked more youthful and smooth. So take that hint from someone who has seen transformations.
But even I am not immune to the aging process and despite water intake, skin gets drier and less tight. Eventually we all need a little help and the sooner you start taking care of yourself, the easier it will be to keep and restore a youthful, smooth and nice looking dermis.
Now let’s get started and look at a number of unique sugar scrubs to help you get your smooth and silky skin. Each scrub has slightly different ingredients that help for different skin conditions. I like using organic coconut oil for all my diy skin care products, but you can also use other oils if you prefer.
Coconut oil is used in many natural beauty products, and for good reason: It’s naturally antibacterial and antifungal, coconut oil for skin is an excellent moisturizer and smells fantastic.
