Coarse Sugar to Shred Dry Skin
If the problem you want to solve is dry, flaky skin then you’ll want to use coarse sugar. The large grains of coarse sugar exfoliate your dry skin while simultaneously infusing it with moisture from the air around you.
Fine Sugar for Radiant Skin
Fine sugar is ideal when you want to restore your skin’s healthy glow.
Instead of breaking away dry skin like coarse sugar, fine sugar helps to turn over the cells in your skin and infuse natural moisture.
One of the best fine sugars for your DIY scrub is pure white sugar—similar to what you use for baking.
On a final note, when choosing the sugar for your scrub, it is best to choose the sugar in the purest form you can find. Organic is always recommended!
