14 Homemade Sugar Body Scrubs

Body scrubs are made into two types:
• Salt
• Sugar
Sugar scrubs are gentler on the skin than salt scrubs. Even though they are gentle, they still do an amazing job of scrubbing away dead skin cells. When combined with the right carrier or base oils, they serve a double purpose: they exfoliate and moisturize at the same time, giving skin an invigorated, youthful glow.

There is no exact shelf life for homemade body or face scrubs. A lot will depend on the ingredients you use, the container you keep them in, the indoor temperature and how often you use them. If they start to change color or smell bad, throw them out and make a fresh batch!
