Sugar scrubs can help combat flaky and dry skin, which is very necessary during the winter months. Why put up with dry skin when you can exfoliate with these 6 DIY sugar scrubs. Not only are they easy and fun to make, they also smell delicious!
1. Coconut Strawberry Sugar Scrub
This handmade strawberry scrub is high in antioxidants; because of the high dosages of vitamin A and E it is great for fighting aging and anti-free radicals. Did I mention this coconut strawberry body scrub also smells really good?
2. Cucumber Mint Sugar Scrub
Cucumbers are full of antioxidants, and are very soothing to the skin. I figured if it’s good for the eyes, it’s gotta be good for the rest of your skin as well. I love the invigorating scent of peppermint, so I decided to add some peppermint essential oil to this sugar scrub.
3. Cinnamon Sugar Scrub
During the hot summer months or the cold and harsh winter months, our lips take a beating from sun, wind or sand, and they could use a little natural pampering. Use this homemade Cinnamon Lip Scrub at least 2 to 3 times a week to keep your lips soft and smooth. Make up a batch for yourself or several to give away!
4. Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub
Seriously, this Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub smells so darn good and softens and moisturizes your skin beautifully without any harsh chemical ingredients. It’s my favorite.
5. Green Tea Sugar Scrub
I find that it works well in beauty treatments. Ever since I stared using green tea powder in my green tea sugar scrubs; I feel very calm and relaxed with a burst of energy.
6. Lavender Sugar Scrub
For a sweet smelling scrub that will leave your hands feeling soft and smooth, try this recipe that you can mix up at home. This Lavender Sugar Scrub makes a great gift, too!
