A Spoonful of Sugar

Mary Poppins got it right. Sugar can cure everything. It has the power to momentarily cure disappointments, a bad grade on a test, even a broken heart. What would we be without sugar?

And so when my skin began to look and feel like the Sahara Desert, I knew I needed some sugar therapy. I crept into my mother's bathroom and borrowed her Fresh Sugar Face Polish, hoping that perhaps her swanky skincare would cure my skin. I looked at the label and saw that some of the key ingredients included brown sugar, grapeseed oil, vitamin C, and wild strawberries. This masque/exfoliant hybrid looked promising, so I was curious to see if it lived up to its sleek product marketing.

As I massaged the exfoliant onto my skin, I was first struck with how wonderfully delicious the polish smelled, like a mixture of strawberries and lemon. The sugar particles were finely ground, not course like the usual exfoliants that I have tried. After leaving the masque on for ten minutes and then rinsing it off in warm water, I was shocked. My skin felt smooth and silky to the touch. It looked almost poreless. And the best part was it had restored some of my lost hydration. My skin was no longer a desert, but instead a silky flower petal.

Just a spoonful of sugar helps your skin look great
In the most delightful way!
