Everyone needs a good skin scrub. It keeps your skin healthy and moisturized, and it’s especially helpful during the summer when you’re out in the sun so much and probably dealing with peeling. But before you shell out cash on fancy body scrub, why not consider making your own? It’s easier than you think and the formula below is great to keep in your shower whenever you need some extra exfoliation.
My go-to skin scrub on required two ingredients (really!): granulated sugar and coconut oil. To create a small portion of this scrub, use 4 tablespoons of sugar and combine with a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil. The reason this oil is perfect for a scrub is because it hardens in a colder temperature, but will immediately soften on contact to rub right into your skin. It also makes the perfect skin scrub because the sugar will remove dry, dead skin, but the coconut oil will hydrate at the same time. Also, the sugar crystals are small enough so as not to be super harsh on sensitive skin. This stuff really is amazing! I always have some on hand.
Pro Tip: This scrub also makes for a sweet gift if you’re on a budget. Just package it up in a cute, tiny mason jar and tie it with a bow!
