How often can I use it?

This scrub can be used 1 to 2 times per week. However, since individual skin types may vary, it’s advisable to monitor how your skin responds. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to use it less frequently.

How Long Does This Salt Scrub Last?

Generally, this homemade salt scrub can last for several weeks to a couple of months if stored in a cool, dry place. However, its freshness may decrease over time. You can continue using the scrub as long as it maintains its texture, scent, and effectiveness.

What sets apart a salt scrub from a sugar scrub?
