Is your sun/saltwater/chlorine skin as parched as mine?
This sugar scrub is sure to help. Unlike salt scrubs, sugar does not dry the skin. Brown sugar is particularly rich in alpha hydroxy acids so it makes a great exfoliant and is much more gentle than white sugar, making it perfect for sensitive skin. All that and it smells heavenly.
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup sunflower or any other oil
Mix and apply to dry skin. I like to do this in the shower before I turn the water on. Just massage it in, taking extra time on elbows, feet and any other rough areas. Rinse with warm water. Pat a little olive oil on your skin before you dry off and you aren't going to believe how soft your skin is.
That's it. Such an economical yet luxurious treat for your summer skin.
