Sugar scrubs are a great way to gently exfoliate the skin. This leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft, and smelling great. While we love sugar scrubs, How many of us actually know the right way to use them?
Benefits: Sugar scrubs are a great way to exfoliate the skin and are a necessary step in your skin care routine. Regularly exfoliating your skin can leave it looking brighter, softer, and less dull. Plus is gets rid of the build up of dead skin cells. This build up will leave your skin looking dry and rough. 'Who wants that! I sure don't!'
How To Use: Please note that how often you exfoliate with sugar scrub definitely depends on your skin type. Over exfoliating can causes dryness and irritation. So, you want to be careful not to over do it. For all skin types just start out by exfoliating once a week. Then gradually work your way up to 3-4 times a week. For sensitive skin you may only need to exfoliate once a week. Just keep an eye on how your skin reacts. Check out our picks for a great "All-Natural" scrub and a "Scented" scrub to use. 1.

Step 1: If you shower let the warm water run for a couple of minutes before you start. In the bath soak for about 5 minutes before exfoliating. Once you are ready, scoop out a palm sized amount of scrub, then gently massage onto your skin in a circular motion. Main areas to exfoliate are your feet, legs, knees, elbows, arms, and hands. Step 2: After exfoliating, rinse the scrub away with warm water. Now it is time to dry off. Make sure to pat dry off and not rub your self dry. Leave a little dampness on your skin! Step 3: If you use a moisturizer on exfoliating days this is a good time to use one. Since your pores are open from a warm bath/shower a good body oil or butter is recommended. Leaving your skin a bit damp helps the body oil or butter to be easily absorbed into the skin. In return your skin is left feeling supple and soft. Step 4: Now put on your favorite robe or pj's and relax!
