Sweeten Your Bath or Shower With This Simple & Cheap Scrub

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.
 
Here are a few benefits of Body Scrubs:
~ remove all the dead skin off your body and expose a supple layer of younger skin, making you feel fresh and rejuvenated
~ great way to prep your sking for a self tanner
~ a nice treat to just make you feel good & relax a little especially if you do it while in the bath
 
Do you have any cheap tips that you use as beauty items?
