You can use this scrub once or twice a week, our skin doesn’t need exfoliating every day so better save this for those days when you want to pamper yourself.
WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE/KIND OF SUGAR TO USE?
Depending on your preference, you can use different types of sugar. Some might be coarser while others are slightly less coarse. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to go for brown sugar. It is the least abrasive and gentlest to use.
