Whipped Grapefruit Mint Sugar Scrub

Your skin is exposed to hot and cold weather on a daily basis and this can cause your skin to become dry, itchy and flaky. Taking baths can clean away dirt but it does not remove the dry, flaky skin.
Sugar scrubs can be very healing for people with skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema.

Sugar scrubs are a perfect way to get rid of dry, flaky skin that develops over the day.  Repeated use of sugar scrubs can lead to healthier, glowing, and uniformly textured and colored skin.

Exfoliation, or the removal of dead skin cells from the skin, should be done on a regular basis. It is a process that makes skin look and feel healthier by improving skin circulation and riding it of toxins. Exfoliation also increases the production of collagen that gives skin its tone and elasticity.
