DIY sugar scrub!

Why spend money on store bought exfoliants when you can make your own with ingredients that are probably in your kitchen right now! This scrub really does wonders for the skin: moisturizes, renews, clears breakouts, and refreshes.  Plus, it is comforting to know that you are using all natural products on your skin rather than harsh chemicals and additives.  I suggest using this scrub every couple of days because it may start irritation if used daily.  Remember, never over exfoliate because it could start clogging your pores!
