Soothe Rough Skin With This Exfoliating Loofah Soap

We have all been told how important it is to exfoliate on a regular basis for better skin. That’s why I absolutely love this soap. The scrubbing effects of the loofah and the wonderful goat’s milk soap make it a great combination. This is another recipe I can add to my natural collection of soaps.

I love the feel of my skin after I have showered and used this loofah soap — it feels so smooth and soft. My skin is then ready for a really good lotion. I know you will love the results you get as well. It is so easy and fast to make. You could use any other melt-and-pour soap you have on hand to get great results as well.
