Here’s another great sugar scrub recipe for you to try out. Whenever I go and get my nails done, I notice that most women opt for the lavender scent when it’s time for their hand massage. To be honest with you, I’m more of an orange or eucalyptus kind of girl. But I definitely appreciate the scent. We all need to exfoliate and if you are in the market for an at-home scrub that you can make on your home, check out this recipe below. This sugar scrub recipe only needs a few ingredients and is sure to help make your skin summer ready.
Remember – if you are gearing up for some time at the pool, it’s always best to exfoliate first! There’s no point in tanning if you haven’t exfoliated first! You’ll start peeling before you get home. Get rid of all that dead skin before you start your day in the sun. (Yes, mom – use SPF… I know.) This also goes for spray tanning, too!
You can use this sugar scrub recipe all over your body, but I wouldn’t put it on your face. I’m super sensitive and I try to keep only products geared towards sensitive skins near my cheekbones. But the rest of your body is totally up for grabs! Take a look at the ingredients list and make sure that you aren’t allergic to anything – it’s all natural, but you never know!
Ok, are you ready for this sugar scrub recipe? Let’s get started!
