Delicious sugar scrubs! When mixed with a solvent, sugar acts as an exfoliant on the skin. It can slough off dead skin, exposing virgin, smooth skin underneath. Sugar scrubs can be used on any part of the body. Sugar scrubs are widely available in supermarkets, so you can find one that fits your needs. Alternatively, you should make your own. Make a sugar scrub using one of these recipes!
-1st recipe – combine 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil and 2 tablespoons sugar.
-2nd recipe – combine 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons sugar.
Wash your face and body. Select the location you are going to scrub and wet it completely. If your skin is sticky, disinfect it with soft soap and warm water. Otherwise, just make sure the skin is fully moist before applying the sugar scrub; otherwise, it would be too abrasive.
Use the sugar to exfoliate the skin. Using your fingers, apply 1-2 teaspoons of your sugar exfoliant. Scrub this on the area where you intend to scrape dead skin in a circular motion. To clear dead tissue, do this gently for 2-3 minutes. You need not feel any pressure or irritation when scrubbing; if you do, you are rubbing the sugar too hard.
Remove the sugar by rinsing. Hot water from the faucet can be used to gently clean away the sugar. The scrub will leave a stain, but this will help to moisturize and smooth the skin and does not need to be rinsed off.
Moisturize and dry the face. Pat the skin dry with a clean rag. If you want to smooth your scalp, finish the procedure by massaging a moisturizing lotion into it. After 1-2 minutes, your skin should feel silky smooth, and soft.
