This winter has been so brutal on my skin. I normally have dry skin throughout the year but it gets really bad during the winter. One thing that really helps it is exfoliating. So, with that in mind I decided to make up some sugar scrubs and free labels to have on hand for myself as well as for a gift if needed. I just used some on my hands and they look and feel so much better. I found that I got the best results by following up the scrub with my favorite cleander (to get any external remaining oils off my skin) and then moisturizing. These make the perfect gifts. I got my jars at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each and they were perfect.
In a bowl I mixed all the ingredients and then added 1 drop of food coloring. Next I put it in my jar and dressed it up with a little bit of raffia and a tag. The scent I used on this one is Green Apple so I used green food coloring.
