Body scrubs Homemade. 🧘♀️
👨👩👧👧Feel free to share with family and friends.
Sugar body scrubs are great for exfoliating hands as they aid in keeping skin healthy by removing dead skin cells, lifting away dirt and stimulating circulation. Glycolic acid occurs naturally in sugar and helps cleanse the skin and dissolve dead skin cells. It’s also a humectant and will not strip your skin of its precious natural oils.
Here is a simple homemade treat for your body, it is delicious and can be used up to three times a week.
Place 1 cup of organic brown sugar in a container and add oil 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing in between. You will use anywhere from 3 – 5 tablespoons, depending on the oil and sugar.
I use Jojoba oil (pronounced ho-ho-ba) it has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It’s odourless, non-greasy, and penetrates quickly, it nourishes all skin types.
The consistency should be sandy, not soupy. If it’s too soupy, add more sugar. You can also add fresh lemon to this with the oil – when combined with the brown sugar it delivers an uplifting aroma and is good for the skin.
Enjoy and make the most of this time.
