What Happens When You Use Sugar In Skincare Products

Sugar is an excellent.....

  1. Humectant: sugar draws moisture from the air into the skin and binds it in, helping to keep it soft and hydrated.

  2. Exfoliant: sugar’s small particles gently remove dead cells off your skin without irritation (unless you use too much or scrub too vigorously.

MORE benefits to using Sugie Skin Care for your dry skin needs.....

  • Ascorbyl glucoside: a form of vitamin C with added glucose that fights free radicals and reduces dark spots.

Benefits of Ascorbyl Glucoside for Skin

At the end of the day, all types of vitamin C are antioxidant powerhouses, though the benefits definitely don't stop there.

  • Fights free radicals: Think of antioxidants, ascorbyl glucoside included, as little Pac-Men working to scavenge up pesky (and skin-damaging) free radicals that are formed when we're exposed to things such as UV rays and pollution. Antioxidants tend to have a synergistic effect when combined, which is why this ingredient works so well when paired with other commonly used antioxidants such as vitamin E or ferulic acid.

  • Promotes brighter skin: Ascorbyl glucoside ultimately converts into 1-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), which is a choice ingredient for both helping to fade existing dark marks and ward off the production of new ones by interfering in the melanin (color) production process in the skin. It does so by preventing the production of an enzyme known as tyrosinase which is essential in this process. "Because it inhibits melanin production, it can be useful when treating hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tones, and age spots," says Dr. Solomon.

  • Boosts collagen production: More collagen equals stronger, smoother, less-wrinkled skin and once ascorbyl glucoside breaks down into l-ascorbic acid it can do just that, stimulating the production of this essential protein There are some questions just how much of these benefits you can get when using it topically, though dermatologists agree that it's a generally great all-around anti-aging ingredient.

  • Glycolic acid: an exfoliant derived from sugar cane that dissolves the glue that holds skin cells together and hydrates skin to boot.

What does glycolic acid do for your skin?

When it comes to glycolic acid benefits, the list is long. First and foremost, glycolic acid is an exfoliant. It helps shed dead skin cells and reveal the newer, brighter layers underneath by acting on the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin). “Normal, intact stratum corneum consists of tightly packed layers of dead skin cells that are tightly bonded together,” says Dr. Howe. "Glycolic acid loosens these bonds.” With their glue dissolved by glycolic acid, those tough, rough layers of dead skin cells can more easily slough away.

But because glycolic acid molecules are so small, it can get deeper into your skin too, where it does some serious work. “Glycolic acid stimulates fibroblasts in the dermis to produce increased amounts of collagen,” says Dr. Howe. And by stimulating collagen production, it helps skin feel firmer and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. Between the superficial action on your stratum corneum and the work it does below, “your skin will feel smoother and look more radiant and even-toned."

Your skin is your first line of defense for your body and organs so take good care of it with Sugie Skin Care.
