Stupid question?

Nobody laugh but can diabetics use sugar scrubs to exfoliate skin? Could it raise blood sugar?

I use them all the time and they don't seem to affect anything. They aren't on skin that long. I was hands really well when I use them so that bg not affected. I'd like to hear other thoughts too.

I have no idea about sugar scrubs, but when I made cookies last Christmas and was handling sugary dough a lot, my blood sugar readings were high enough to make me wonder if sugar can be absorbed through the skin. (I washed my hands very thoroughly before I tested and did NOT taste anything while I was baking.) It would be interesting to know if anyone has done a study on this.

I use them with no problems with bg. BTW there are a ton of recipes to make your own on Pinterest.
