ugar Facts: Sugar works wonders in healing scratches and cuts. Use Sugar to extend lipstick: Sprinkle a bit of sugar atop freshly applied lipstick, let it sit, and then lick it off. This works to set the lipstick and will extend the application. For extra mucky hands (think paint, grease, grime) add sugar to your soap lather to act as an abrasive. You can also use equal parts sugar and olive oil, which acts to soothe and moisturize over-worked hands.
