What are the Benefits of Exfoliating Body Sugar Scrub?
The key to having beautiful skin is exfoliating. Exfoliating rids your skin of dead skin cells to provide a smooth and shiny skin. Not exfoliating will cause your skin to look dull.
The skin is the biggest organ, and we need to protect what we put on it. Even though, we do not drink our skincare our bodies do absorb what we put on them daily. Finding good quality skincare and ingredients will help you physically, emotionally and mentally.
Not absorbing and putting toxic ingredients on your body will reduce toxicity within the bloodstream.
Eventually our skincare products will enter our bloodstream and it is essential to choose the best natural options that you can afford.
Making an exfoliating body sugar scrub is not only easy but, very affordable to make.

An exfoliating body sugar scrub is to remove dead skin cells and renew skin for new growth.
A body wash just like a bar of soap will remove oils, dirt and clean skin. Body wash can be used everyday verses a body scrub should be used three to five times a week.
Each have a different use and should be used in your natural skin care routine to be affected.
When choosing a body sugar scrub or a body wash it is important to not use harsh, chemical products such as fragrance, parabens, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Luryl Sulfate and alcohol. Harsh chemical in body care can cause rashes, endocrine disrupters and other irritates. Use nontoxic and gentle cleaners such as the Homemade Candy Corn Body Sugar Scrub. The Essential Oils smell incredible and very uplifting.
After using any body sugar scrub pat your body dry and moisturize right after a shower or bath.
