Homemade Sugar Scrub

Have you ever felt that your skin was being rubbed a little too hard when you got a salt scrub at your favorite spa? Don’t worry; you’re not only one who feels that way. It is indispensable to mention here that people with sensitive skin usually make the complaint as indicated earlier.

Benefits of Ingredients

The sugar crystals in the scrub will gently work on your skin to get rid of all the dead skin cells leaving it fresh and glowing. The olive oil will make your skin baby soft, even during winters, when the skin usually gets all dry and rough. While honey is a natural bleaching agent that will lighten your skin tone and work miracles for your acne, vanilla essence will leave your body smelling exquisite after you have completed the scrubbing.

Directions

Take a mixing bowl and add both types of sugar in it. Now add olive oil, honey and vanilla extract to the bowl and mix the ingredients with a spoon. You can also substitute olive oil with almond oil or avocado oil depending on your personal preference or perhaps if the olive oil is not available. Lastly, add a few drops of your favorite essential oils in the mixture.

Finishing Up

Apply this scrub to your entire body and work it around in circular motion. Do not rub violently because that will only hurt your skin and cause rashes. While using this scrub on your face avoid the area around your eyes because the skin there is too soft and should not be scrubbed. Finish up with a rinse of cool water to close off your pores. This scrub contains vitamin E, which is a natural preservative so you don’t need to worry about making a fresh mixture every day. Instead, you can store it in a glass jar and keep it beside your bathtub up to two months.
