DIY Sugar Body Scrub - Only 3 Ingredients & All Natural!

Hello, everyone!  Welcome back for another beauty related post.  Today, I'm going to show you how I make my favorite sugar body scrub.  Its made of only 3 ingredients, is all natural and very simple to create.   This universal recipe is safe for all skin types and can literally be used from head to toe!  

The ingredients are sugar (classic white granulated sugar), organic coconut oil, and organic sweet almond oil.  You can find everything at most grocery stores, Whole Foods, health stores, or online such as Amazon.  The oils are usually located near the vegetable or olive oil sections.  I prefer to you white sugar instead of salt in my scrub because it's much gentler on the skin, especially if you plan on using it on your face.  I use both coconut oil and sweet almond oil for adding deep moisture and anti-aging benefits.  These oils are also packed with many nutrients including Vitamin E which is a leading ingredient found in most expensive eye and facial creams.  Now onto this super easy tutorial that your skin is gonna love!

RECIPE:

1 cup White Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Organic Sweet Almond Oil

1. Use a medium sized mixing bowl and add your sugar first, followed with the oils.  If your coconut oil is solid like mine, microwave it in a small dish on short intervals of 15-20 seconds until completely melted.  Then add with the rest.
2. Mix all ingredients together until well blended to a thick consistency.  I swear it looks just like snow!
3. Place into containers.  I ended up filling two 4oz containers. 
4. Finally, use and enjoy!

NOTE: You can easily double this recipe.  These measurements will make about 8oz of scrub and can be stored in any sealed container or jar.  I prefer using plastic rubbermaid containers which are safer for inside the shower.

And it's that easy!  You're already done and ready to pamper yourself :) I hope you liked this sort of post.  If you do try this recipe, be sure to let me know and tell me what you think!  I use this scrub on a weekly basis and it's definitely a staple in my beauty routine.  I particularly love this as a facial scrub and use it 1-2 times a week.  If you enjoyed this post please like, comment and follow this blog for more.  As always, have a fantastic day and I'll talk with you all soon!

Love ya lots,
Richelle
