Delicious Exfoliator

So its been warm enough that I've been wearing sandals lately, which means my heals are starting to crack. I thought I'd share my favorite way to exfoliate hands and feet. Just combine regular white granulated sugar with your favorite soap, body wash, bubble bath, etc. The ratio of sugar to soap should be about 2:1. Rub it into the skin, focusing on problem areas for about a minute and rinse off. Follow up with your favorite hand cream or lotion.

Angela, your trick works! It sounds far-fetched, but after trying it once, there was an improvement. I'll be trying it again. Where did you get the idea? AG

AG-
Glad you liked it! I got the idea from sugar scrubs that you can buy for lots of money at places like Sephora. At first I used olive oil and sugar, which works great too, if you want to try it, but usually my soap is cheaper than olive oil, so I started using that.

I need this. Thanks for the tip!

Do not try eating the sugar mixture after it has been used! You can all thank me later.
