Body Scrubs – Salty vs. Sweet

Body scrubs offer a wealth of benefits for your skin – but is there a difference between using a salt or sugar scrub? The answer is Yes. Sugar scrubs are the way to go– and at Colibri Day Spa we prefer the sweeter side of life. Let’s dive into why you should use Sugar over Salt Scrubs.

Sugar Scrub

A Gentle Touch

Sugar-based scrubs are far less abrasive than their salty competitors and dissolve much quicker in water. Since sugar granules are smaller and rounder, they are less harsh on the skin’s surface and won’t cause any irritation. Sugar makes it a much better alternative to those with sensitive skin or for sensitive areas like the face, neck and decollete.

Anyone who’s attempted to use salt scrubs on the more sensitive areas knows the unpleasant stinging sensation that follows. The salt crystals are too rough and rigid to glide around on the skin, causing micro-scarring and overall drying.

Sugar only needs to be rubbed gently into the skin. With light pressure and a little water the scrub will easily dissolve along with any dead skin. Using sugar scrubs gives you healthy, naturally glowing skin without any of the risks.

Sugar is Full of Nutrients

When we apply sugar to our skin, we benefit from the many minerals it possesses. Our scrubs with unrefined cane sugar contain essential minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium, which rapidly nourish the skin. They also include glycolic acid which many see as the “holy grail” of exfoliation. Sugar scrubs can reduce inflammation, scar tissue and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring your skin’s natural glow.

At Colibri Day Spa & Beauty Shop we offer a variety of sugar scrubs from the beloved brand Pure Fiji. Pure Fiji is the most luxurious all-natural brand on the market for body scrubs and body butters. Their ingredients are derived from the purest sugar cane and botanical oils. Stop in today and experience a Fiji Manicure and Fiji Pedicure.
