I love a good sugar scrub…especially during the winter. The dry, cooler temperatures wreak havoc on my skin, so a good scrub really comes in handy! I use one at least once a week to keep my skin smoother by getting rid of dry, flaky skin. Today’s easy DIY rosemary mint sugar scrub is guaranteed to get your skin smooth after just one use.
Although I love the scrubs found at stores like Bath and Body Works, Ulta and Sephora, I don’t always have the money to splurge on this luxury. Not to mention, there are all kinds of ingredients I can’t even pronounce in many of the scrubs found in stores. No, thank you! I’d rather make my own and know what I’m putting on my body. How about you?
