Easy Sugar Scrub Remedy for Cracked Heels
Are You Sugar Scrubbing Yet?
Sugar Scrubbing is a gentle way to exfoliate the skin just about anywhere on your body. It’s perfect for heel fissures and dry cracked skin.
Why you should use a sugar scrub remedy for cracked heels
Why would you want to use a sugar scrub in the first place? Sugar scrubbing is a great way to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating removes dead skin particles, as well as any oil and residue.
This will soften your skin and prepare it for anything else to follow, such as a moisturizer or a heavy foot cream.
A sugar scrub stimulates the lymph system, which is responsible for eliminating toxins out of the body.
The gentle massage of rubbing a sugar scrub into your skin also improves the blood circulation right under your skin, giving you that healthy glow.
How to use a sugar scrub on your feet
Start your sugar scrubbing treatment by cleaning your skin with a gentle soap or other cleanser and warm water. Then grab a handful of the sugar scrub and massage it into your skin in a circular motion. The coarse sugar will gently exfoliate your skin. Rinse the sugar off with plenty of cool water and use more cleanser to get any sugary residue off your skin. Gently pat your skin dry with a soft, clean towel and follow with your favourite foot cream. You should use a sugar scrub to exfoliate once or twice a week as needed to maintain that smooth skin and healthy glow.
