What Is Sugar Scrub?
If you aren’t familiar with sugar scrubs, you’ve been missing out. They are an easy way to give your skin some much-needed hydration and exfoliation. While you can make them without scents more often than not, they also leave your skin not just feeling fresh but smelling fresh too.
The sugar in the scrub is a light way to exfoliate and doesn’t damage your skin unless you are scrubbing excessively. Due to the gaining popularity of sugar scrubs, they make lovely gifts too!
