How to Use a Sugar Scrub
If you’re new to DIY beauty products or sugar scrubs, you may be wondering How to use a sugar scrub and how often you might need to use one to maintain that glowing skin.
Just like the face, the body needs exfoliation. Ideally a sugar scrub can be used two to three times a week and not more than this.
Simply take some of the sugar and rub it in circular motions on the body. Circular motions are less abrasive than rubbing back and forth and help to get those tough spots.
I particularly like to use a sugar scrub on my feet, ankles and legs. It really helps to remove that dead skin and is easy to wash off once completed.
