Sugar Scrub for sensitive skin
Sugar scrub even sensitive skin will love
I love sugar scrub but I have very sensitive skin. I was having trouble with breakouts after I bought sugar scrub from the store. If you cannot pronounce the ingredients then they are not good for your skin. It is very hard to find all natural products from local stores. I decided to do some research and come up with my own recipe that does not irritate my skin.
I did a lot of research to figure out what to add to my sugar scrub to get the best result and I want to share with you what is the best ingredients for all natural sugar scrub.
