Sugar Scrubs 101

Our Brown Barn Sugar Scrubs have become one of our most popular selling items.  Winter or Summer, these scrubs help dry skin become fresh and new again but did you know there are a host of other benefits gained when using a Sugar Scrub?

  • Sugar scrubs are user-friendly for all skin types because they leave no side effects in their wake. 
  • They work wonders in preventing skin ailments like eczema and psoriasis because they hydrate skin so effectively.
  • Sugar scrubs are a great way to fight cellulite in the body.
  • Sugar scrubs can be used on your face are used not only for skin exfoliation, but also for cleansing and massaging it. The advantage of which is that they do not clog the pores and are easily absorbed into the skin. Using a sugar scrub on the face will leave it smooth and healthy and will prevent the onset of acne.We recommend using the Brown Barn sugar scrubs that contain essential oils rather than fragrance oil for facial applications.
  • They are packed with the goodness of alpha-hydroxy which is essential for glowing skin.
  • Repeated use of sugar scrubs will help one to have healthier, glowing, uniformly textured and colored skin.
  • They are a much better choice than salt scrubs because they aren't as harsh as salt scrubs and are much smoother than them.
  • Sugar scrubs can be used by children without any side effects.
  • Sugar scrub can be used to circulate and stimulate the lymph nodes. Always apply in circular motions from fingers and toes toward the heart to stimulate circulation.
  • Everyday use will also help to formulate a protective layer for the skin and prevent areas like the knees, elbow, etc. from becoming dark.
  • Sugar scrubs can be used on the lips as well. Sugar scrubs work wonders for lips because they help in preventing chapped lips and skin. If one already has chapped lips, a single or probably two uses of sugar scrubs can soften the skin.  Again, we recommend using Sugar Scrubs containing essential oil rather than fragrance oil for this application.
  • Sugar scrubs also help to absorb the oils and dirt from the skin and balance the natural oils.
Lastly, Sugar Scrubs just feel ooooh so goooood.  The Brown Barn Sugar Scrubs are "dry scrubs" meaning that we use solid oils rather than liquid oils in our scrubs. This helps to avoid leaking and the dreaded accidental tipping of the jar oil loss we've all experience in our tub!  Look for expanded and new blends and scents in this line with our Spring scents and available by popular demand on-line and in our Steamboat store today is Black Raspberry Vanilla with added seeds.
