How To Make Sugar Scrubs

9 Jul

Exfoliating your skin is very important because the process helps you to remove dead skin cells so that you’re left with beautiful healthy looking skin. At the forefront of exfoliants are sugar scrubs which are gentle yet effective. They can also be made quickly and inexpensive which is always a big plus. If you’re a newbie and want to learn how to make sugar scrubs or are looking for a few new homemade scrub recipes keep on reading for my favorites.

How To Make Sugar Scrubs

Regardless of the type of homemade skin exfoliator you decide to make, there are a few basic rules on how to get started.

  • It’s important to find a jar that has a lid to hold the product. Make sure that the lid closes tightly and that the jar is big enough for you to make enough for a few uses in order to save you time. I like to use the empty jar from my Minus 416 body scrub but you can use something smaller if you like.
  • When making a homemade sugar scrub, be sure to leave enough room in the jar so that you can mix the sugars with a spoon comfortably. It would be such a waste for it all to go overboard.
  • When measuring sugars, you should use equal parts of white and brown sugars. So if you measure out ½ cup of white sugar then be sure to measure out ½ cup of brown sugar.
  • When measuring out the oil use only one part oil for two parts of sugar. So that would mean that you use ½ cup of white sugar. ½ cup of brown sugar and ½ of oil.
  • Oils that work well with sugar scrubs are olive, sunflower, almond, coconut and grapeseed oil.
  • After you’ve put the sugar into the container, drizzle in some oil and mix. Then drizzle again and mix again. Chances are that over time, the oil will drain down to the bottom of the jar but that’s normal and nothing to worry about.

      I love coffee scrubs. The fragrance of the coffee alone is enough to make me happy. Chocolate is good too.
