Cure Wintertime Dry Skin – Cheap & Easy Sugar Scrub

I used to love to buy either salt or sugar scrubs to use in the shower. I saw a difference in my dry and bumpy skin on the back of my arms. I have since learned that the dry, bumpy skin on the back of my arms is often referred to as “chicken skin” and that about 50% of the population has it! Well, I also learned that exfoliating and moisturizing can really help alleviate the skin condition.

Quite frankly, though, nowadays sugar scrubs seem like quite a luxury. There are so many other things I’d rather buy than scrub for myself….

However, I just happened to be reading about my little skin condition and read over and over that exfoliating with a scrub and moisturizing with a good oil (like coconut oil) can make a difference in your skin. It’ll at least feel great! So, I decided to make my own sugar scrub.

There is one simple recipe to make a sugar scrub. Use one part oil to two parts sugar. You can use olive oil, sunflower oil or coconut oil. For sugar, you can use white or brown or a combination of the two. Then, you can add fun extras like vanilla extract or cinnamon to make it even yummier…I mean, better smelling 😉

Here’s how I made mine:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

That’s it. Mix it all up. Put it in a container you can seal. Then, enjoy!
