If you are new to making your own beauty products, these sugary scrub recipes are a great way to get started. You can use them on your face as well as on your body, and they are perfect for keeping your feet soft.
You can add different ingredients to the scrubs depending on your mood, and they are super-easy to make. They are actually natural and tasty enough to eat, but try not to - sugar is a lott better for you on the outside then on the inside!
Basic Sugar Scrub
1/2 cup brown or white sugar
1/2 cup of olive or coconut oil
Mix the ingredients and store the scrub in a jar with an airtight lid, and use as an everyday peeling in the shower. Scrub skin with the mixture and rinse well - it will leave your skin feeling soft like silk.
Scented Sugar Scrub
For a scented scrub you can simply add the essential oils of your preference, for example lavender for a soothing and relaxing effect or eucalyptus for an invigorating experience.
Lemon scrub for the hands
You know how the fingers sometimes smell from oions when you’ve been cooking? A sugar scrub with lemon or orange-scented essential oils will take care of that!
Scrubs for dry skin
If you want your scrubs to be extra nourishing for dry skin - try adding a few drops of vitamin E oil to the mixture as well.
