Beauty Quickie: Facial and body scrubs can go a long way to keep your skin looking beautiful and radiant as well as encourage more skin cells to develop. Instead of buying a scrub you can simply make one at home! All you need to do is take a very small amount of your favorite lotion or moisturizer and combine it with sugar. Use this sugary mixture to remove any dead skin cells and then rinse it off. Sugar can also be used without lotion or moisturizer, but make sure your skin is thoroughly wet first so as not to cause any irritation.
