I have been hearing so much about homemade scrubs, etc that I finally decided to try one. I decided on the most simple one you could make. I hate the scent of lotions, etc so I chose one that had no scent. This Homemade Sugar Scrub is something anyone can make! Here are the ingredients:
Yep, just those three ingredients. I decided to start small since I wasn’t sure I would like this whole DIY thing. I did 2tbs of brown sugar, 1tbs of white sugar, and enough oil to just bond the mixture. Armed with my homemade sugar scrub and a wash cloth I headed for the bathroom. I wetted my face a little and then started to use the scrub. Problem #1; It smelled so good I had to try hard to not lick my face. There is nothing more unattractive than a women trying to lick the side of her face.
After beating down the demons that kept screaming “lick it, lick it.” I started to slowly rub the mixture all over my face. After everything was completely covered I let it sit for 5 minutes, constantly saying ” I will not lick, I will not lick” After the timer went off I entered the bathroom again and using warm water I gently cleansed the mixture away and WOW! My skin was so smooth and even looked a little brighter. That is when I encountered problem #2. My face felt sooo good that my neck felt so rough. Going in the kitchen I made the mixture again and did my neck which was considerable easier since there is no way I could lick my neck. After 5 minutes I rinsed again and was like WOW again, it was so smooth that the rest of my body felt like a gravel road. You guessed it I made a huge batch and hit the shower. I will never, ever buy another scrub again. This has made a believer out of me. Using this twice a month will save me money.
I can’t wait to try more DIY products. I will definitely be posting my results for you 😀
Edit* My friend Omneya recommended trying it on your feet. I did and they are silky smooth and touchable. Now I have to find someone to rub them so they can feel how touchable they are! Squee!
