Have you ever tried a sugar scrub? They are wonderful. They gently exfoliate your skin and the oil moisturizes it at the same time. It’s almost time for sandals and flip flops so it’s time for you to make some of this and start working on your feet in the shower!
You can use this on your face but I have really oily skin so I love to use it everywhere except my face. It works wonders for sloughing my psoriasis without irritating it. If you are looking for a sugar scrub for your face that doesn’t contain an oil try these.
This brown sugar scrub will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth!
The coconut oil is so healthy and won’t clog your pores. Sugar scrubs are perfect for exfoliating dead skin off of your body. I use sugar scrubs on my knees, elbows and feet. I also love to use them on my tummy, back, arms, legs and lips. When you make your own sugar scrub, you can customize your ingredients so that you are able to exfoliate and moisturize in one step!
I use shea butter or coconut oil to make sugar scrubs. When you use either of these in your sugar scrub, your skin will be exfoliated and moisturized at the same time. Coconut oil is thick and creamy which works well for a sugar scrub. But it also melts easily in your hands so the consistency isn’t thick and hard. Coconut oil is available in your grocery store, it’s inexpensive, and smells great!
Supplies to make a Homemade Sugar Scrub:

How to make Sugar Scrub:

The Best Way to Use a Sugar Scrub
Use your fingers or a spoon to stir up the mixture. Smooth over your skin in a circular motion to exfoliate and polish your skin.
