DIY Sugar Scrub

Hello! If like me you're a bit strapped for cash at the mo homemade sugar scrubs are a great way of saving money as you can use them on your face and body and all the ingredients are in your kitchen cupboards.

Today I used a scrub made of Brown Sugar, Olive Oil, and Lemon Juice

You can also use white sugar and salt as exfoliating alternatives - Brown Sugar is a lot thicker and is gentle on the skin.

If you have Coconut Oil at home I would recommend using that as it smells a lot nicer than Olive Oil. There is no real recipe in terms of the ratio of sugar to oil, it depends if you want the scrub to be mainly grainy or have more liquid.

Admittedly the mixture doesn't look too attractive but it works wonders on my skin. I scrub my whole body before getting into the shower then rinse it off and my skin is so soft after. It also gets rid of dead skin and fake tan residue! Use in the bath before shaving legs for smooth legs

What DIY beauty products have you made?

  1. I love the creative idea behind DIY products but I think I'm far too lazy to make my own beauty products! This does look cool though xo

  2. We've been making one with coffee, sugar and yoghurt recently which is really, really good. Makes the skin super soft!
    We are all for DIY products!
