How To Use Sugar Body Scrubs
Sugar scrubs are great options to give during the holiday season – especially homemade ones as they provide the best results when compared to ones bought in grocery stores! We always prefer a good natural beauty product with ingredients we already have at home. Try one of our DIY sugar scrub recipes to get a little self-care spa day right at home.
These sugar scrubs are perfect for getting rid of dead skin cells and leaving you with super soft skin – and smelling great, too.
Using a sugar scrub, especially in the winter months, is a great way to treat itchy skin, dry skin, and overall, make the skin feel soft – like a baby’s! You can customize them too – depending on the kind of sugar you can get different results. Coarse sugar works best for knees and elbows, while white sugar is best for dry hands and sensitive skin.
Use these sugar scrubs in the shower or bath – when it’s time to exfoliate, gently massage the scrub into your skin in a circular motion and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Finally, apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp to lock in the moisture.
Then, depending on the essential oil and carrier oils you choose, you will get other benefits. Our favorite carrier oils are vitamin e oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, and shea butter. And when it comes to essential oils, there are so many different ones you can try. These are our favorites for a great DIY body scrub:
But feel free to try other combinations! 5-10 total drops of essential oil should be more than enough for any sugar scrub.
