A sugar scrub is a fun, easy way to pamper yourself and rejuvenate your body. And, you can easily create a natural, pure scrub for yourself at home. You simply need a few, basic ingredients.

The first step in creating a great scrub at home is sourcing the base—sugar.  And, you can easily vary the formula and benefits by changing up the texture and color of the sugar.  Here, we will discuss the variety of benefits you can infuse into your scrub through different types of sugar.

Coarse Sugar

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.

Two ideal coarse sugars for your DIY scrub are brown sugar and raw sugar.  It is also wise to note that coarse sugar is best suited for use on your body instead of the delicate skin on your face.

Fine Sugar

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!
