Raw cane sugar contains glycolic acid that acts as a natural exfoliator and along with lemon and honey in face masks; it can open up clogged pores, restore the skin’s ph balance and relieve the skin of damages done by acne outbursts.
Persistent acne and allergies can lead to blemishes and make the skin look dull and damaged. Raw cane sugar exfoliates the skin, expels toxins and impurities, removes dead skin cells and refreshes the largest organ of your body.
Raw cane sugar is known to reduce skin inflammations resulting from insect bites. Pain is considerably reduced after regular application for a few days.

2. Weekly Manicures at home
For those who are bound by time and schedule and cannot visit salons for manicures or other skin treatments can easily resort to a quick raw cane sugar scrub at home. Massaging in a circular motion for a couple of minutes will make your skin look radiant and your nails polished.
