DIY Strawberry Heart Sugar Scrub Bars

I remember making soap a couple of times as a child. Boy have times changed! Now we can make all kinds of soaps at home, including sugar scrub bars.

A simple sugar scrub bar can help you get softer, smoother skin. Everyone’s skin is affected by hormones, diet, weather and other factors. Sugar is a naturally gentle abrasive that can remove dead skin. Sugar granules help remove dead skin and brighten dull skin, leaving smooth, healthy-looking skin in its place. Sugar is a natural humectant, so it doesn’t strip moisture from your skin.

If you’ve never used a sugar scrub, it’s easy! You’ll want to use the sugar scrub after you have cleaned your face. Simply wet the sugar scrub bar and gently massage with your hands in small circles. Once you have finished applying, just rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.

These sugar scrub bars should be stored in an airtight glass container.

It’s great that these can be made at home. The scent must be amazing. Homemade products are great as you know what’s in them.

I’ve never tried making my own soap as I always assumed it was really complicated, but this looks so simple!

I made soap years ago as a child but have never made sugar scrub bars before. Your post has really made me want to make some though as my skin would benefit from them plus by making at home I can guarantee what ingredients go into them. These would make lovely gifts.
