How to use a Sugar Scrub
A sugar scrub is used to cleanse and exfoliate the skin gently.
Start with a warm shower and get your skin completely wet. Then, slowly apply the sugar scrub to your skin. Rubbing in circular motions, but not too hard. You don’t want to irritate your skin.
Continue rubbing the scrub over your entire body for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse the scrub off your skin. As the scrub rinses away, you will usually feel your skin feels refreshed, clean and moisturized. The oil in the scrub should soften and moisturize your skin.
For best results, you only need to use a sugar scrub once or twice a week.
