Quick Rose Sugar Scrub / Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe

Microbeads is one of microplastic can be found on almost every beach worldwide. There are 5 Trillian floating pieces of plastic contaminating our water. Out of many alternatives to microbeads, my favorite is fine sugar.

It can quickly dissolve in water and leaves nothing for our water after jobs done. Below is quick Rose and Peppermint sugar scrub recipe for face and body. Enjoy!
