How To Make: Hand Series: Sugar Scrub (Grapefruit & Jojoba)

Today’s recipe is for the Grapefruit & Jojoba Sugar Scrub. In this recipe we added sugar to a lotion base to make the scrub. Sugar is a great exfoliator. Exfoliating is extremely important to make the skin softer and smoother. It also helps remove dead skin thats around our nail beds.  For this recipe you can either use course or fine sugar depending on how ‘rough’ scrubbing do you want.

The lotion base that we are using in this recipe is Jojoba Lotion Base by SoapLab. Its made of jojoba oil and it moisturises and hydrates the skin. We also added red ruby grapefruit fragrance oil for a pleasant and fruity aroma. And finally, we added synstar red mica for a dash of color.
