Making a Sugar Scrub at Home
This recipe is incredibly simple and is a quick DIY prefect for a little self care or pampering without leaving home!
It’s a great addition to my regular natural skincare routine.
Before making this sugar scrub at home, I would like to throw a quick disclaimer out there. This recipe uses coconut oil – which I don’t recommend using in the shower or in any way that can clog up your drains at home.
Instead, I use this scrub to gently exfoliate my lips, hands, and feet. Then I will use a damp warm cloth to brush away any excess sugar. You can collect this on a towel and dispose in the kitchen trash or shake out outside.
The benefits of this awesome sugar scrub outweigh the extra effort involved.
- the rose scent is pretty amazing
- it is fairly inexpensive (especially compared to store bought)
- this sugar scrub is all natural
- coconut oil is incredible for the skin
Coconut oil is very moisturizing and can hydrate dry skin. Hello, midwest winters!
It also has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. Which makes it great for cleansing and purifying the skin.
