Hey guys! So as I was getting ready to give myself a facial this morning, I remembered that I had never shared my recipe as promised (if you’ve been here a while then you know that I’m all about natural beauty AND natural beauty products!). So here’s my little DIY Sugar Scrub recipe. And of course, you can always add or adjust things to your liking 🙂
Now this recipe only call for 3 ingredients—and that’s granulated white sugar, coconut oil and some Lemon Essential oil. You can use other sugars and oils, I do. This combination just works best for my face. The point is, you need an exfoliant (to exfoliate dead surface skin cells), a moisturizer (to nourish your skin),and something special to add some cleansing and/or health benefits. Essential oils are great because they’re naturally medicinal. Plus, they have (and add!) such lovely fragrances.
Now the measurements are also something that depends on you. I usually just mix 1 teaspoon of each (sugar and coconut oil) with a couple (literally 2!) drops of essential oil. And that’s because I make my facial scrub as needed (as a single use). Obviously, you would use more to make a batch big enough to share and/or store. Also, depending on the consistency you like, that will also determine how much of what you will add. I like my scrub to be like more of a paste. So add more sugar if you like yours drier like sand.
Once you’ve gotten that all figured out, just mix all of your ingredients together and apply it to your (damped) face (gently massaging your face in a circular motion). Next, wash it off with cool water. Then don’t forget to apply a little extra moisturizer.That’s it! Let me know if you try it out. And feel free to share some of your own DIY recipes with me!
Much love, Brandi
