I was just recently introduced to sugar scrubs a couple of years ago, and after using one on my feet and legs I couldn’t believe that I’d gone so long without trying it! The way the sugar exfoliated my skin and the oil moisturized it… ah! I had the silkiest skin ever! But when shopping for a scrub in the store, I was astounded at how expensive they can be. Since it’s really just oil and sugar, there’s no need to buy one; you can easily make it yourself and customize it to the scent you want.
This “recipe” is one of my favorites. It’s for a brown sugar vanilla kind, and it’s so easy. You just mix everything together and tweak it by adding more oil if it’s too dry or more sugar if it’s too soupy. That’s it! And since you’re using ingredients from your own pantry you know that it’s all going to be safe and there are no impossible-to-pronounce chemicals.
Be careful with this one, though. The brown sugar and vanilla will make it smell heavenly so you’ll have to resist the urge to taste it. (Though it’s obviously all food safe, the oil will probably make it taste pretty nasty…)
All You Need:
- 1 cup oil (sunflower, olive… Whatever you prefer)
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
All You Do:
(Okay, brace yourselves for the super complex directions…)
- put the oil, sugars and vanilla in a bowl
- mix them all together
Wow. So difficult. 😉 That’s it, you’re all ready to exfoliate, moisturize and pamper your skin with the sugary goodness. Enjoy!
