Reviving a Forgotten Favorite

Someone recently reminded me about an old trick I used to use.  Add some sugar to the shower routine!  More sugar that is.  Maybe I should just move my spice cabinet to the shower!  I now have apple cider vinegar, baking soda, brown sugar, oregano, and white sugar in the tub.  What next? 

I digress.  It goes like this:  I put the white sugar in an old spice jar that has a sift top.  I pour some Dr. B in my hand (peppermint is my current flavor-of-the-day) and shake on some sugar.  It makes a great exfoliate for my skin.  And unlike salt, which I’ve also tried, it dissolves quickly and doesn’t feel as abrasive.  It is soft enough for my face.  And maybe, just maybe, it will make me sweeter.
