This strawberry heart sugar scrub bars tutorial is so easy! You’ll enjoy making these colorful, scented bars for yourself or to give as a gift.
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.
