- Take a small amount of the DIY Aloe Vera Gel Scrub with Glitter and apply it to the desired area.
- Using gentle circular motions, massage the scrub into your skin, focusing on any dry or rough patches.
- Continue to massage for 1-2 minutes, taking care not to apply too much pressure.
- Rinse the scrub off with warm water and pat your skin dry with a towel.
- Follow up with your favorite moisturizer or body oil for an extra boost of hydration.
Note: As with any new skincare product, it’s a good idea to patch test the scrub on a small area of skin before using it all over your body to ensure that you don’t have any adverse reactions. Avoid using the scrub on any areas of broken or irritated skin.
