Homemade sugar scrubs are another one of those little luxuries that are incredibly simple to make which makes them a great addition to your DIY skincare arsenal.
Sugar scrubs have a plethora of benefits, including leaving the skin smoother and more vibrant. The gentle exfoliation they provide helps to slough off the dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to duller looking skin.
Additionally, exfoliating with sugar scrubs can boost circulation and contribute to collagen production. They’re also equally beneficial for smoothing callused heels and invigorating the feet after a long day.
Maybe it was a night of drinking. Maybe it was too much refined sugar, salt, or carbs — only to follow it up with a 2am bedtime.
Cue puffiness, bloat, and angry, inflamed skin the next morning. The kind of irritation that even the best face mist can’t quell. And the kind of carbohydrate-induced water retention that takes a day or two to resolve, sending your cheekbones on an extended vacation.
