What is a Sugar Scrub?
A sugar scrub is a mix of sugar and oils that you use to exfoliate your skin. It's a great way to pamper yourself, and it has many benefits. The main ingredients in a sugar scrub are:
- Sugar (or salt) - this helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of your body.
- Oils - these moisturize and soften the skin, making it feel smooth after using the scrub. There are many different kinds of oils that can be used in scrubs including coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil. You can also use essential oils if you want something with more scent (eucalyptus or lavender would be nice!).
DIY Sugar Scrub Recipe
You will need:
- 1 cup of sugar (white or brown)
- 1/2 cup olive oil or coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Store in an airtight container and use as needed!
Using a Sugar Scrub
Now that you know how to make a sugar scrub, it's time to learn how to use it! Here are some tips:
- Use your scrub once or twice a week. If you want to use it more often than that, go ahead--but be aware that frequent use can cause dry skin if not balanced by moisturizing products like lotion or body butter.
- Apply the scrub directly onto clean skin (or overtop of your favorite lotion) and massage gently in circular motions for about 5 minutes. You'll see dead skin cells coming off as you work! Once done massaging, rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a towel before applying any other products (like lotions).

Tips for the Best Sugar Scrub Experience
Sugar scrubs are a great way to pamper yourself and get the most out of your bath or shower. But if you're new to this type of product, it may be hard to know what works best for your skin. Here are some tips for using sugar scrubs:
- Use only as much scrub as needed--too much can damage the skin and cause irritation.
- Don't use any other products on top of your sugar scrub (such as lotion) until after it has been washed off completely! This helps prevent clogged pores and breakouts later on down the road!

DIY Body Scrub Benefits
A DIY body scrub is a great way to pamper yourself. It's also a useful tool for exfoliating your skin, which can help you get rid of dry patches and prevent ingrown hairs.
If you're new to using a DIY body scrub, here are some tips on how to get the most out of your experience:
- Use a gentle soap or shower gel as part of your daily routine before using the scrub-dub™ Body Scrubber. This will ensure that all dirt and grime has been removed from your skin before applying any kind of product onto it!
- Make sure that after using our product (or any other), make sure not only does not leave behind any residue but also moisturize afterward so that there isn't any irritation caused by harsh chemicals being used on top of each other which could lead into an allergic reaction down the road if left untreated properly beforehand.
