Remember this - Anything You put on Your skin will enter Your bloodstream- in around 27 seconds ,

it is the second fastest way for something to enter Your bloodstream the first being intravenously.

So in this Blog we are going to talk about SUGAR SCRUBS an evil creation and here's just a few !

We all know Sugar is bad -but it's worse for You skin !

1. AVOID any Skin products with Sugar


More than 6 tablespoons or 25 grams of it in any form can lead to your skin becoming wrinkled and lose its smoothness. This happens due to a natural process called glycation in which the sugar from your bloodstream links itself to proteins, leading to a formation of new molecules that are harmful for you and are known as advanced glycation end products.

You will probably use more than that in one application .

2. Sugar is Carcinogenic destroys at a cellular level and here the worst - Aside from increasing the effects of aging, glycation can also exacerbate skin conditions like acne and rosacea.


Processed sugar is one of the worst ingredients in the foods you eat, because it robs your body of vitamin C, as well as calcium, zinc, chromium, manganese and magnesium. When that happens, your health is at risk, as your immune system weakens, you can’t sleep well throughout the night, your bones are affected, your body is at risk of chronic inflammation, and your cellular and nerve function are compromised.

The more sugar eat/use, the more these molecules develop, and the more your skin becomes prone to damage.

These molecules affect collagen and elastic, meaning that they lead to your skin losing its firmness and elasticity. Your skin could thus become dry and brittle, causing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.

According to a study published in the British Journal of Dermatology, people around the age of 35 and older who consume excess amounts of sugar see a quick increase of wrinkling.

The mentioned molecules also deactivate the body’s natural antioxidant enzymes, causing an increased sensitivity to sun damage.

5. Your skin cannot process Sugar in the same way .

It will enter Your blood stream in around 27 seconds !

Your digestive tract is designed to process foods through a sophisticated system and the nutrients are distributed accordingly throughout your body for energy and function sugar still harms the body this way -

6.When it is applied transdermally as in a scrub and sure- You may get a Sugar buzz but it puts Your skin cells under tremendous stress- and will age Your skin cells .

Your cells are not able to deal with this type of abuse increased -cellular degeneration begins to occur as the natural anti -oxidants are destroyed ! And Don't be fooled by "other natural Organic ingredients" they are mixed in with as they may allow further damage to happen as the sugar bonds to them this then becomes a Trojan hitchhiking its way deeper into the body .

7.Sugar increases the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Large-scale studies have shown that the more high-glycemic foods /products (those that quickly affect blood sugar), including foods /products containing sugar, a person consumes/uses, the higher his risk for becoming obese and for developing diabetes and heart disease.

- A sugar-laden diet may raise your risk of dying of heart disease even if you aren’t overweight. ... But about one in 10 people get a whopping one-quarter or more of their calories from added sugar.

YOU will put on weight from added sugar in Your diet -that includes SCRUBS !

8. Can't stop using it ? YOU LOVE IT SO MUCH ?

But the harmfulness of sugar goes far beyond too many calories that will get you fat and ruin your good looks but many people don’t actually know why and how sugar is bad for them. Sugar causes an addiction that could be compared with an addiction to drugs, and it can be relatively difficult to stop.

There are NO beauty benefits to using Sugar scrubs !

So why are they out there ?

no1 . MONEY ! It's a Trillion Dollar industry .

NO self respecting informed /ethical company would encourage or sell Sugar scrubs - to consumers and is very good indication of their level of care factor or lack of knowledge to just what kind of damage can be done to the human body by their products- we will continue with other blogs of beauty products bad for Your health and wellbeing .
