Caitlin and I were so happy to ditch our winter clothes and get our warm weather clothes out of storage. Because you definitely show more skin in the warmer months, you need to get your skin ready. That means you need to exfoliate and hydrate! My DIY Essential Oil Lemon Sugar Body Scrub is perfect!
I love to keep sugar scrubs handy in our bathroom. I make it a point to exfoliate my skin at least once a week. My recipe for my DIY Essential Oil Lemon Sugar Body Scrub is effective without being too harsh on the skin. Most people have issues with exfoliating because they find it too abrasive. My scrub is gentle but still removes those dead skin cells.
