What do you mean, sugar wouldn't be good for our beauty? 

It is true that a priori, it is not our best friend to keep the figure. But to keep beautiful skin, have nice makeup, give hair volume ... Ah, we feel that you are interested! We tell you all about the benefits of sugar and we share 3 beauty recipes. Yum !

Sugar beauty recipe n ° 1: volume spray for hair

We know the salt-based spray to give a wavy effect to your hair. He has a cousin! A sugar-based hair spray that will give them texture but also shine. It will even have a slightly fixing result, all without sticking or drying out the lengths. On the contrary ! Because this is another secret and benefit of sugar: a hydrating virtue. Wow!

Our instructions for a homemade sugar spray:

  • Heat 300 ml of water.
  • Immerse 2 pieces of sugar (white or cane, the latter would have a more pleasant scent).
  • Melt them in water.
  • Pour into a spray bottle.
  • Let cool. Your spray ... is ready! You can keep it for about 3 weeks.


  • Apply it to dry hair.
  • Spray on the lengths and ends but avoid the roots: it could be a little too sticky.
  • Do Your Hair ! If you do a brushing, it will make your hair really shiny!

 The additional tip:

Sugar in Beauty is best known for scrub recipes. Let your scalp benefit! Just add 1c. to your shampoo dose when washing your hair. Massage your skull to get rid of dead cells or impurities and rinse. Ideal for beautiful long hair!

Sugar Beauty Tip # 2: A Lipstick That Holds Better

A little coffee, a little kiss ... Do you find that your lipstick holds better on the cup or on the cheek than on your lips? Sugar might help you keep it longer.

 Our instructions for fixing your lipstick with sugar:

  • Apply your rouge according to the shape of your lips.
  • Gently place a little sugar on top.
  • Wait a few minutes.
  • Remove the excess with a cotton ball or tissue.

 The additional tip:

The lips also have their sugar-based scrub! Nothing like it to make them smooth and allow makeup to better withstand the tests of the day. A simple recipe: mix sugar and honey in equal parts, place this paste on your lips in small circular movements. Rinse and smile!

  Sugar treatment recipe n ° 3: an anti-aging scrub

Sugar is therefore one of the star natural ingredients in homemade scrubs. It is especially its grain effect that is acclaimed. But did you know that by melting, sugar can also have a perfect "chemical" action for sensitive skin? This will release its glycolic acid which will nibble the impurities in ultra-softness: we let it do and we rub less. We have found a homemade recipe that combines these two benefits for a bluffing anti-aging result!

Our instructions for a double face scrub:

  • In a bowl, mix 1 tsp. of sugar and 1 tsp. of argan oil.
  • Moisten your face with warm (but not hot!) Water, using a damp towel.
  • Apply the sugar treatment in very gentle circular movements: you benefit from a "mechanical exfoliation", the grain one!
  • Take the time: at least 2 min to melt the sugar at the same time.
  • Leave on for another 2 minutes to benefit from the "chemical scrub".
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water.

 The additional tip:

Replace the argan oil with lemon juice in equal parts with the sugar and leave for 5 min: presto! A brightening scrub that should fade recent brown spots!

Last thing before savoring these recipes: know that white sugar is finer (therefore perfect for the face) and that brown sugar is thicker (therefore perfect for the body)! Are these recipes making you all sugar?
