If you are like us you are leaning towards natural in as many areas of your life as possible.   We love a great exfoliate scrub but we wonder what it contains.   We have read that so many scrubs contain oils that can actually clog or irritate your pores.    So we started researching homemade options and starting researching salt scrubs vs sugar scrubs.   And reading on the benefits of a sugar scrub over a salt scrub.

We have learned that a homemade sugar body scrub is a gentle abrasion that removes dead skin but doesn’t dry out the skin.   Sugar is a natural humectant so actually draws moisture into your skin.   Sugar crystals are finer salt making them less abrasive.  A homemade sugar scrub is better for your skin than a salt scrub because it is gentler on your skin.  Scrubs should be used about once a week to remove all the dead cells and reinvigorate the skin.  And always moisturize afterward.
