The best way to make your sugar scrub a gift or party favor is by tying a pretty ribbon or twine around the jar and attaching a tag. The free tags that come with this Mint Sugar Scrub give the name of the scrub as well as instructions for use.
What Sugar to Use in a Sugar Scrub?
Great question! Because it’s a little finer, so less abrasive, I use white sugar for facial or lip scrubs. Brown sugar, which is a bit more coarse, is best for body scrubs. Raw sugar, which is the coarsest sugar, is nice to use for hand and foot scrubs.
How to Use Your DIY Sugar Scrub
- Scoop a small amount of the Vanilla Sugar Scrub in your hands with a spoon.
- Scrub all over your hands or feet – or wherever you’d like extra soft skin.
- Allow to soak into your skin for a few minutes. Enjoy this time to relax!
- Rinse well and then pat dry with a soft towel.
If you’re short on time, massage the scrub all over your body and rinse during your normal shower routine.
SAFETY NOTE: Be careful while using your sugar scrubs on your feet while in the shower. The oils contained in scrubs can make your feet slippery.
How Often Should You Use a Sugar Scrub?
If your skin is healthy and firm, you can use a sugar scrub a couple times a week. However, if you have sensitive or thin skin, limit a good buffing to once a week. If you have any concerns, you can test an area of your skin before you use it on the rest of your body.
