WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SUGAR SCRUBS?
Sugar scrubs can be really great for your skin, especially in the drier months of fall and winter. Here are just a few benefits of sugar scrubs:
- Exfoliate your skin by sloughing away dead, dry skin.
- Moisturize your skin with nourishing oils.
- Brighten skin by removing dull-looking skin.
- Help free ingrown hairs.
- Create softer, smoother skin.
HOW TO USE THE PSL SUGAR SCRUB
Sugar body scrubs like this pumpkin spice latte scrub are very simple to use. It’s a good idea to moisten the skin before using the scrub. You can use this scrub in the shower just be cautious as the coconut oil may make the floor of the shower slick. Scoop out a small amount of the sugar scrub and rub it on your skin in circular motions. The heat of your skin will melt the oils in the scrub into your skin while the brown sugar exfoliates. Finally, rinse the skin and pat dry.
STORING THE SUGAR SCRUB
Because this sugar scrub is made without preservatives, it won’t last forever. You can extend the life of the scrub by keeping it in an airtight container like a mason jar and storing it in the refrigerator. You will be able to continue using the scrub for 4-6 weeks. If you see any signs that the scrub is beginning to spoil, throw it away!
