Our skin hates the colder weather in the #DMV. So if you’re stuck inside try to make the best of your time with a homemade body scrub.
1. All you need is sugar, oil, and fragrance. (We suggest using regular sugar for fine exfoliation).
2. Find your container (old baby food jar and jam jars work great).
3. Use a 2 to 1 ratio of sugar to oil. So, if you are using a half a cup of sugar in your container add 1/4 cup of oil. Extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil (warmed in microwave to make liquid) work best in my opinion.
4. Stir the two together.
5. Then add your favorite scent, whether it is peppermint oil for the holidays (great for headache relief), lavender for relaxation, or citrus for invigoration your skin will enjoy this spa day at home.
