HOW TO MAKE A SUGAR SCRUB AND SUGAR CUBES
Sugar scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and moisturize your whole body in the shower. To make these sugar cubes, all you really need are three ingredients: melt and pour soap, coconut oil and sugar. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and spoon the mixture into the molds of your choice. Once they’ve cooled, pop them out and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use them.
