Sugar scrubs are just easier to manage. They help remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving your skin softer and smoother, without causing pain. A sugar scrub is a good choice is your skin is extremely sensitive or if you have had a salt scrub before and found it scratchy or uncomfortable.
Here are 3 of my favorites:
- DIY Mint Sugar Scrub. You only need a few simple ingredients to make a basic sugar scrub: your oil of choice (I used coconut), sugar, and an oil extract to scent your scrub. She added some peppermint extract and a drop of green food coloring to give it that lovely minty-green look. This Homemade Mint Sugar Scrub is the perfect DIY gift idea! Inexpensive and easy to make!
