Exfoliating is an important factor for healthy looking and feeling skin, for all skin types. Although soap cleanses the skin, a sugar scrub can remove dead skin cells and excess oil. It can help unclog pores and keep your skin nice and even. The natural ingredients in homemade sugar scrubs won’t be harsh on your skin and the oil will also help to rehydrate and moisturize. A basic sugar scrub recipe allows you to experiment and personalize your own mixture!
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
Add whatever essential oil you prefer (I used almond). Lemon juice is also a natural exfoliator and can add an extra burst of energy! I like to put a bit of food colouring in my scrubs to make it pretty! Salt can also be substituted for sugar for a harsher scrub.
