EASY BODY CARE HACK : DIY SUGAR SCRUB

Hello Lovelies,

Exfoliation is absolutely key to maintaining beautiful smooth skin.  I recently started making my own scrubs and it has been so much fun experimenting with natural ingredients in my kitchen.  Making scrubs at home is a fun, relaxing alternative when your favorite product is out of stock or you want to make your daily shower a little more special.

Thanks to my pink Kitchen Aid mixer whipping these up doesn’t take very long.  If you don’t have a stand-up mixer you can use a hand mixer and a deep mixing bowl.  I store mine in glasses jars which you can purchase at the Container Store or order on Amazon.com.  My recipe isn’t always precise but since I decided to write a blog post about it I started taking notes when a batch came out with just the right consistency.  You can always put more or less oils depending on your preference.   When I’m out of Olive Oil I like using Grapeseed Oil as an alternative.

  •  2 Cups of Brown Sugar
  •  2 Cups of White Sugar
  •  1 cup of Turbinado Sugar
  •  3 tablespoons of Coconut Oil
  •  3  tablespoons of Almond Oil
  •  3  tablespoons of Olive Oil
  •  2 tablespoons of Honey

All of the ingredients are hydrating and great for the skin. I have eczema so this scrub helped alleviate the dryness, my lotion absorbed more quickly, and my skin stayed hydrated longer.  I start by pouring all the ingredients into my mixing bowl and mixing it gradually at a low to medium speed.  I like my scrub to have a semi-solid texture.
