I hope you had a great weekend celebrating Mother’s Day! I love sugar scrubs especially this time of year when we start wearing shorts, dresses, and bathing suits. Sugar scrubs are perfect to exfoliate the skin but also hydrate it at the same time.
I’ve bought a ton of scrubs throughout the years but I love when you can save some money and whip one up in just a few minutes from things you probably already have at home. I found this Sugar Scrub on Pinterest a couple years ago and love it! Click here for the original post.
What you need.
The original post makes a little too much and when I made it the first time it started to mold before I could use it all, so I don’t make as much.
2 1/2 cups of Sugar / / I used 1 1/2 cups
1 cup of Olive Oil, Vegetable Oil, Canola Oil, or Coconut Oil / / I used a little more than half a cup of Vegetable Oil.
5 tablespoons of citrus juice, preferably fresh juice / / I used about 3 1/2 tablespoons of citrus juice from a bottle (it works the same to me)
What to do.
In no particular order just start mixing all of the ingredients together until completely mixed.
After you have completely mixed it together you have yourself a really cheap at home sugar scrub. What I like to do when it is all mixed up is pour it into a Mason Jar and keep it in my bathroom for easy access. It does start to not smell as great if it’s not used up in a couple weeks so just keep that in mind! These also make great gifts for your girlfriends, make more than the recipe calls for to fill up a whole Mason Jar and type a ribbon around it with a sweet card. Perfect.
This sugar scrub can also be used as a lip scrub to exfoliate dry lips. After you are done hop out of the bath and moisturize like crazy. You will have the softest skin of life. Seriously. Go. Try. This. Now. :)
