So you may be wondering, why should I get a Foot Scrub? And what is so special about a Sugar Foot Scrub?

Well let me tell you!  Now that it is entering into winter, feet become dry, possibly cracking. It’s not sandal season, so taking care of them is not a big priority. But now is exactly when you should be taking care of them. A scrub helps take care and remove dead skin, leaving feet feeling smooth and moisturized. And with summer being blown away with the winds of winter, the cold dry air really takes it’s tole on our skin and feet.

So why then is sugar so fantastic you ask?

Well first and foremost sugar is a natural moisturizer. It is a natural humectant, so it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. This really helps combat the dryness of winter and the cracks that can plague our feet. “Secondly, sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the “glue” that bonds skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresher, younger-looking skin.”1
Sugar also is a great alternative to salt because it is not as abrasive. Sugar itself is a smaller granule therefor there will be less micro tears in the skin as compared to salt. With the exfoliation you are also helping skin cell renewal by getting rid of the old cells.2

Overall, a sugar scrub is a great way to moisturize and pamper tired feet. It helps relieve stress, soreness, and rejuvenates the skin. We use our feet so much throughout the day, don’t they deserve a little attention?
