Exfoliating your skin is essential all year and even more necessary in the winter. The cold air, there being less humidity in the air, and central heat in our homes creates the perfect storm of dry, itchy, flaky skin. Often times this dry skin can be quite painful and makes you want to scratch at it until it’s irritated and red, sometimes even bleeding. Ouch! So what to do? Exfoliate with sugar! Sugar is a wonderful natural exfoliant that removes dead skin and cellular build-up, allowing fresh, rejuvenated skin to surface. It is also more gentle than salt, and smells and tastes delicious too! It will leave a beautiful glow to your skin and will also help your blood flow better throughout your body, opening the pores of your skin to remove dirt, oils, and bacteria.

Many of the skincare products we use are infused with natural ingredients. We often look for information on the labels that say “natural” and “easy as 1-2-3” so why don’t you take matters into your own hands and just make your own home skincare treatments? Not only are homemade skin treatments good for your skin, but they are also great for your wallet!
