Sugar Scrub?

Recommended Posts

ok.... so my skin is pretty dry right now and I wanted to use a scrub to help get rid of some of the flakiness that I have. The only scrubs I have at my house all contain some type of "active ingriedent" in them like salicylic acid... and I am trying to stay away from stuff like that...

I was reading about the sugar scrub here

and I was wondering if I could use canola oil or vegetable oil instead? I really dont want to break out even more though.... so i just wanted to know what you guys thought about this.

Hopefulley i can try it today

I got this on sunflower oil from Wikipedia:

As a frying oil, Sunflower oil behaves as a typical vegetable triglyceride. In cosmetics, it has smoothing properties and is considered noncomedogenic. Only the high-oleic variety possesses shelf life sufficient for commercial cosmetic formulation.
