I saw a meme on Facebook a few days ago that had Michigan’s “actual” seasons…from summer to “false” fall, then “last summer” then “real” fall.
Y’all. It’s so true! Last week it was in the 60s here, and this week we’re topping out at 80 degrees. My sinuses and my skin aren’t having it.
I’ve got cracked cuticles (ow!), rough knees and elbows (even though I’m moisturizing every.single.day!), and a constant runny nose. And since it seems like these temperature swings aren’t going to stop anytime soon, I have resigned myself to treating the symptoms, starting with my dry skin.
Because that ish hurts, Y’all!

How to Use Sugar Scrub Cubes
To use your apple pie sugar scrub cubes, you’ll want to grab one or two and bring them with you into the shower or bath. Wet the area you’d like to exfoliate, and gently rub the cube on clean, damp skin to exfoliate.
