I have been enjoying a simple and natural sugar body scrub that I can make at home to help tackle my dry skin. It is much cheaper than buying and with only two ingredients, I always have the supplies on hand. I have been trying to move towards a more natural and fragrant free beauty routine so this recipe has been a great addition to my shower regimen.
I like to make a big batch and then store the scrub in canning jars. By using it a few times a week, I go through it pretty quickly so having a large supply comes in handy. And if you want a little something extra, a few drops of essential oils makes for a fragrant and relaxing mix.
Natural Sugar Body Scrub
4 ounces coconut oil
2 cups sugar
(feel free to double or triple for a larger batch)
Mix oil and sugar together with hands in a large bowl. Store in an airtight container until use.
Use sugar scrub while in the shower to exfoliate and remove dead skin.
