sugar scrubs

Are you looking for ways to get rid of the dry skin on your body and uncover fresh smooth skin? Do you want a way to relax and unwind, exfoliate and hydrate your skin all while relaxing in professional hands? If so, then you need to learn all that you can about sugar scrubs.

There are so many benefits to using sugar scrub on your skin. It offers a soft and relaxing method for exfoliating your skin, helps to remove rough buildup, and gives your skin that glowy look that everyone is jealous of.

See below for an in-depth guide telling you all of the benefits of sugar scrubs for your skin.

1. Relaxation Galore

Perhaps you’re looking for a way to pamper yourself after a stressful day/month/year. Maybe you want to find a method for making your skin glow more than it ever has (to impress that special someone).

Whatever the case might be, a sugar scrub can offer it for you. The scrub itself has a soothing feeling as it’s massaged in. The sugars naturally break down into smaller granules and melt on your skin as it’s being applied.

So, at first, you’ll get that satisfying feeling of scrubbing your skin to exfoliate it, which gradually transforms into the feeling of rubbing oil or lotion on your skin.

We place a heavy focus on sugar scrubs for our spa treatments. Here at the Self Centre in Edmonton, we have a couple of sugar scrubs that you can choose from. Once you find your preference, we’ll scrub it in for you while you lay down and relax.

Our body scrub services come in two tiers: you can either have a 30-minute body scrub with lotion application or you have the option of adding on a foot and hand scrub to your massage therapy treatment.

We highly recommend the foot and hand scrub, as it includes a sugar scrub exfoliation, hot towel removal, and moisturizing cream to top it off!

2. Removes Harsh Items

Have you ever wondered what causes clogged skin pores? Why does your skin seem to break out in pimples one day, but not the next?

There are a few different reasons. For example, it could have to do with genetics, the level of your hormones, whether or not you’re getting enough sun exposure, and so forth.

However, the main culprit for breakouts (by far!) is dirt. That’s right, dirt is the main reason that your pores are becoming clogged and creating noticeable blackheads and pimples. It mixes with the oil and dead skin to block the pore and cause irritation.

Sugar scrub is an incredible cure for this. The sugar granules gently remove the dirt from your skin as it’s applied. Sugar scrub also contains natural oils, so it’s able to replenish the bad (old) skin oil that it’s washing away.

There’s a balance to strike with your skincare routine. If you don’t clean it enough, the dirt can cause clogged pores. However, if you clean it too much, then you risk drying out your skin. Get in a routine of applying sugar scrub to find that happy medium!

3. Gives Your Skin a Radiant Glow

Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want glowing skin? Glowing skin can make you look years younger, give you more energy, and significantly boost your self-confidence.

Ladies, we aren’t just talking to you. All you men out there, you should take more time to properly care for your skin. Studies have shown that men with healthy skin color and glow are more attractive to women!

For some of you, glowing skin has been unachievable. You know how the old saying goes, “If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.”

That, in this case, is using sugar scrub! The sugar granules will remove the old top layer of skin from your body, revealing the new, healthier layer of skin that’s underneath.

4. Balance of Skin Oil

We briefly touched on this before, but it bears worth repeating: you need to find a balance with your skincare routine.

If you wash/clean your skin too often, then you risk removing your skin’s natural oil, which it uses to keep your skin moisturized and strong. However, as we mentioned, cleaning it too little will cause clogged pores, dead skin, and a bunch of other unwanted problems.

Sugar scrub is the perfect solution. The sugar contains glycolic acid, as well as natural oils, helping replenish the oil and give your skin the nutrients it needs to shine.

5. Exfoliation to the Max

Many of you have heard the term “exfoliation”, but don’t know what it means. defines exfoliation as the “process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin.”

There aren’t many people that make it a priority to do that. After all, you have kids to worry about, a career to focus on, etc.

Let us take care of your exfoliation needs for you! We can apply our sugar scrub and help you remove all the dirt and dead layers of skin to keep that glowing, radiant skin at the top of its game.
