A-List Advice: Kim Kardashian

Ever wondered how Kim Kardashian maintains that beautiful super-soft skin? The answer, my dear readers, is sugar.

To rid her skin of dirt and dead skin cells, the Armenian beauty adds a spoonful of sugar to her body wash "for a gentle exfoliating experience".

Kimmy is clearly on to something. Sugar is a great gentle exfoliant; it is abrasive enough to remove dead skin cells without damaging or irritating the skin. Even better, sugar is a natural ingredient that contains glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) that helps treat acne and pigmentation and diminish fine lines.
If you want to take this tip to the next level, try mixing a spoonful of sugar with a spoonful of olive oil to create an even more nourishing and natural exfoliator.
