POST HOMEMADE BODY SCRUB CARE

Removing all of those dead skin cells is beneficial, but scrubs can often take some of your skin’s natural oils with them.

For this reason it’s important to moisturise after enjoying a body scrub. It will prevent your skin from drying out and leave it feeling soft.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
