For best results, first, wet your skin with warm water then rub it to create a lather on your body for a gentle exfoliation.
Then, using a circular motion, rub your sugar scrub bar all over your skin, paying extra attention to dry skin and problem areas.
Store your bars in a dry dark place in something such as a mason jar or airtight container at room temperature. They have a shelf life of 5-6 months.
