Brown Sugar scrubs are one of my most favorite things to do when I'm having a bath or shower. I try to do this 2 - 3 times a week. It's so simple & cheap. I've seen recipes online like this one calling for brown sugar, salt & oil . You could do that. I have tried similar scrubs & found that my brown sugar dissolved to quickly in the oil for my liking. Maybe I just need to buy a coarser brown sugar for that, but I want this treatment to be simple & cheap so running out to buy 'special' sugar defeats the purpose...lol. So all I do is take about 2 - 3 table spoons of brown sugar in a container & then when I'm in my bath or shower I scoop out a little at a time & then just rub the brown sugar by itself all over. I pay special attention to areas that get more dry like my feet & elbows. I also make sure to pay special attention on my hands & my back. My skin feels so smooth & soft after. The brown sugar is a great exfloiator. However I don't use this on my face as I feel the brown sugar is to rough for the delicate skin on the face.
