DIY Sugar Scrub Recipes

I’m very excited to share these recipes with you guys today! Skin is your body’s largest organ. It doesn’t soak up everything you put on it, but some substances can penetrate the skin. This is why I like to incorporate more organic/natural products into my routine. It’s important to be healthy on the inside and out. Sugar scrubs are great for removing dead and dry skin. Some people even claim to see improvement in cellulite from using scrubs. I have two recipes today for you to try out. These are simple recipes, but if you want to buy a scrub instead, be sure to check the ingredients!
