Homemade Exfoliating Scrub for Winter

White sugar falling into a beige jar against a white wall.


Wintertime is upon us which means your skin is probably in need of some care. Cold weather can dry out your skin causing irritation such as cracking, redness, and pain. That is why it is imperative to gently exfoliate your skin and replenish with a moisturizer throughout the cold months. Thus, we wanted to share this sugar cube exfoliating soap with you! It is scented with P&J Vanilla Bean and smells absolutely delicious. These small soaps are especially perfect for your hands and are fast to create and use throughout the day. 

Once you created your exfoliating soaps, simply wet your hands, gently scrub them with one cube, rinse, and pat your skin dry. Of course, we always suggest doing a skin patch test on a small area of skin before using a finished product all over your body. Follow along above or below to learn how to make this easy DIY!
