DIY: Sugar Scrub

  • Published on June 28, 2016

    Get your skin summer ready with this all natural sugar scrub!! Today’s TuesTorial comes from students and staff at La’ James International College in Cedar Rapids.

    Not only is this DIY scrub cost effective but it is also safe to use on the whole body. That’s right!… You can exfoliate those feet for sandal season AND your skin for a more flawless summer glow!

    What you need: 

    • 1 cup of Coconut Oil
    • ½ cup – 1 cup of Sugar
    • Essential Oils [avoid citrus oils as it will intensify the effects of the sun and cause your skin to burn]
    • Bowl
    • Sealed Glass Container
    • Spoon

    Step 1: Gather your ingredients: Coconut Oil, Sugar & Essential Oils. [Remember to avoid citrus oils as it will intensify the effects of the sun and cause your skin to burn.]

    Step 2: Fold the sugar into the coconut oil and mix until fully combined. Do not add the essential oil just yet. If the coconut oil is to hard, you can heat it slightly but do not let it melt of the sugar will dissolve.

    Step 3: Transfer your mixture into a glass container and then add the essential oil. Using a glass container is important because essential oils will pull the toxins from plastic into your scrub, which then would get into your pores. Optional: Dress up your jar with a cute label!

    Step 4: Massage gently into the skin, working toward the heart. Remove the scrub with a warm, wet towel and admire your new shine! To store your leftover scrub, simply place in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it again.
