Well it's that time of year again. The time of year when my skin decides to go crazy by both getting super dry and breaking out. While I am still in the process of figuring out exactly what to do to control and prevent breakouts this time of year, I have come up with an amazing sugar body scrub that both intensely nourishes and gently scrubs away any dry skin. Even my younger sister who has struggled with really sensitive skin said that this scrub worked amazingly well in getting rid of any dry skin irritation that is bound to pop up in the dead of winter. It is also a great low-cost way to make a nice homemade gift for anyone with a birthday coming up.
