Does anyone else feel like a shower during the week is now equivalent to a trip to the spa? Most nights I just hide in the shower for 20 minutes because sometimes, that’s the only time Moms are alone – who’s with me?
I­t feels great to update the every day (or 3 day) shower with DIY body scrubs or bath soaks. It’s an easy way to feel like you are treating yourself while taking care of your body and wellness over all the other lives you look over. This sugar scrub is perfect for you body and is a great exfoliant for your face once a week. Not to mention, I­t smells (and probably tastes) devine. Keep the sugar out on the counter and give it a try after you bake muffins for the kiddos one night.
