Sugar scrubs are excellent for our skin. Most of us only think of exfoliating our faces if we’re on a skincare regimen but you can also exfoliate the rest of your skin. Sugar scrubs use little crystals to sluff off old skin cells, clean our pores and prevent breakouts and ingrown hairs. All while leaving your skin soft and smooth. It sounds like a fair trade and something easy for all of us to incorporate into our weekly routine!
Gifting little sugar scrubs with essential oils is thoughtful and won’t break the bank. Also, sugar scrubs use minimal ingredients, which is beneficial if you’re trying to live a more natural lifestyle like me. And we all know that essential oils have endless benefits for our bodies – another win!
