Body Products

Has anyone noticed things like sugar scrubs affecting the way they feel?

I know you can absorb things through your skin, like if you bathe in whiskey you will get drunk, etc. but I am not sure if most body products stay on your skin long enough, or in large enough quantities.

I saw a blog that suggested making sugar scrub with the sugar left in your cupboard. It seemed like a good idea, but then I worried about getting high blood sugar from it... probably silly, but I wondered what you all think?

I wouldn't worry. But, it might be a good idea to just start with scrubbing a small area, like your face or elbows to see how you feel.

Funny the things that concern us now!

lol, yes, it is a funny thing to worry about.

Someone mentioned Breathalyzer in another thread, I had been worried about that, too. I asked on a fb board for a keto coach and she said no, but I also saw an artical online that said yes...

Ah... to bathe in whiskey. I just can't imagine having enough cash to bathe in scotch... I think I just found something to put on my bucket list.

I recall in a documentary a place somewhere in Eastern Europe that you can bathe in beer. *sigh*

I don't use bath, skin or hair products with gluten because of my intense intolerance per doctors recommendation but I haven't thought about salt scrubs.

What inspired my question was a weird mood reaction that I had after using a sugar scrub... I know I am sensitive but that surprised me! When I looked around a little I saw suggestions to make sugar scrub as an option to use it up.

Interesting! I would avoid it and see how it goes. I know when you're "just" showering, your skin is soft, pores are open, its usually steamy so anything can absorb. I know I feel different sensations when I use EO in the bath tub. I wasn't sure if a quick scrub is enough to make a difference but I would avoid it for a while and come back to it to see if you notices changes again.

Thanks! I will do that!

This is a very interesting topic and honestly I have no idea. I think, though, if anyone had candida issues, it would be a bad idea. Do keep us updated if you decide to experiment.
