Nourish your skin with this homemade sugar scrub. Exfoliation is a very important aspect of your skin care routine. The skin should be exfoliated at least twice a week to avoid dead skin cells, ingrown hairs and to prevent extra protein or excess oil from getting trapped in the hair follicles.

- White sugar 1/2 cup
