Here’s a beauty boost hiding in plain sight on your kitchen shelf! While it’s best not to eat too much of it, slathering sugar over your face can rev up your skin, says organic skincare expert Imelda Burke in her book, The Nature of Beauty (Penguin/Ebury Press). “Sugar has a natural humectant or moisturising factor, which helps to draw moisture into the cells,” she writes. And as London newspaper Daily Mail reports, sugar is also a natural source of glycolic acid that brightens the skin and repairs its texture. There’s even a handy recipe for a face mask: Grind raw sugar with olive oil and honey. It’s that simple.
