This Homemade Sugar Scrub recipe is so simple to make with just two ingredients! It works wonderfully to help exfoliate the dry dead skin on your body while leaving it soft and silky.
Years ago I stumbled across this little gem. I had been having dry skin issues on different parts of my body especially on the feet. I would apply lotion liberally throughout the day but the lotion never seemed to get through the top dry surface. This is where exfoliation comes in handy. I searched for something that didn’t contain a whole bunch of chemicals or things I couldn’t pronounce. Applying something that I didn’t know what it was to my body seemed strange to me. So with trial and failure, I found the sugar scrub. Not only is it simple to make, it likely calls for ingredients you already have on hand.
What You Will Need To Make This Homemade Sugar Scrub
1/4 cup extra virgin or regular olive oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
In a mason jar or another air tight storage container, pour in the olive oil.
Scoop in the in the brown sugar and mix well with a fork or metal spoon. Make sure to smash out the clumps.
The mixture is ready when it looks like wet sand.
FAQ For This Homemade Sugar Scrub Recipe
How to use this Homemade Sugar Scrub?
This scrub is great to use just about anywhere on the body that you are having dry skin issues or wanting to just do a great exfoliation on. If using on the feet, I like to simply soak my feet in the bathtub while sitting on the edge for about 10 minutes or so. Then use the scrub and rinse.After I apply a good amount of my Whipped Body Butter or using a Beeswax Lotion Bar for moisturizing.
If using on the body, I place the jar of scrub on the hamper next to my shower. I get into the shower and wet the skin. Then apply a small amount of the sugar scrub to the area and begin lightly massaging it in circles. You don’t need to press down hard or apply much pressure to this scrub as the granules from the sugar will work to get the dead skin off. By simply massaging it in to the area for a few seconds and rinsing it under the warm water in the shower. Your skin will feel silky and soft.
Where Can I Use this Homemade Sugar Scrub?
This scrub can be used anywhere you have dry skin or are wanting a bit of exfoliation. I love using on my hands for hand treatments when coming in from the garden. But it also works well on the body and feet for at home pedicures. I wouldn’t recommend using this on your décolletage as that area has thinner skin and this scrub might be a bit too abrasive for it. I have used this on my face and neck for an at home deep cleanse facial and you can see more on that in this post with video in My Natural Skincare Routine.
