It's the time of year when drugstore aisles are brimming with half-price Christmas sweets. Two dozen candy canes for 79 cents? Such a deal! But, unless you have a serious sweet tooth, eating all of that minty-fresh goodness is just not gonna happen. (We like 'em, but at some point, too much of a good thing is too much.)
That's why we're excited by our resourceful friends at Popsugar Beauty. They've created a massively simple DIY body scrub using, yep, candy canes. Makes sense, actually — some of our favorite splurgey scrubs use sugar to exfoliate dead skin, and these sweets can deliver the same benefit. It's not as easy as just crushing up the 'canes, though. Click over for the full "recipe." As for us, we'll just be scooping up discounted candy — and soon, smooth skin — over here. (Popsugar Beauty)
