DIY Sugar Scrub Recipe
How It Works
Create a simple, better-for-you sugar scrub to help exfoliate and moisturize dry skin -- with just two ingredients...well three, if you count the jar ;) Here's how:
Mix together one cup of granulated sugar (type doesn't matter so go with your preference, or use up a neglected one in your pantry!) with one cup of oil (again, your preference, but I like sweet almond oil or coconut oil. Even olive oil works!). Voila -- you've got a natural sugar scrub free from harsh chemicals and without the hefty price tag. Store it in a glass jar and rub it into dry skin patches in the shower as needed. BONUS: if you're into essential oils, you can add a few drops of your favs and have a spa-like scrub at your fingertips (lavender, lemon, cinnamon, etc.) Enjoy!
PS: A jar of this with a cute ribbon and name tag makes for a delightful gift :)
What You’ll Need
- 1 Cup Granulated sugar (brown, white, or your preference)
- 1 Cup Oil (your preference)
- Essentil Oils (optional)

I learned this great DIY beauty hack from Wellness Mama after getting tired of paying super high prices for scrubs that I knew were easy to make.
You can also use used coffee grounds instead of sugar :) If it's not for immediate use you have to make sure to let the used grounds dry out first, but if you're going to use it within a day or two you can use the wet grounds and just add about 1/2 the amount of oil.
