This week I am sharing with you a recipe from my Bittersweet Walnut Grove book series. Whip up a batch of this in your kitchen and you'll have your skin feeling silky smooth in just 10 minutes! Sugar scrubs are quite exfoliating and moisturizing to the skin. Scrubs can be applied to most areas of the body and are especially beneficial to the hands and feet. Use 1 tablespoon as needed. To smooth rough areas gently press the sugar granules in the body scrub in a circular motion and rinse. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience, read full disclosure policy.
