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.
Store bought room sprays and deodorizers may smell good, but they can be very bad for your upper respiratory system as well as your overall health. Common ingredients in these products include formaldehyde, phthalates, and dangerous aerosol propellants such as butane and propane — not to mention the thousands of other endocrine-disprupting chemicals that are not required to be disclosed on the product’s label. Exposure to these ingredients has been linked to cancer, pulmonary damage, asthma, and skin issues, among other concerns.
