Its main purpose is to help exfoliate your skin. And it’s so much fun to know what awesome things are going into the scrub and knowing how all of the ingredients will help keep your skin beautifully soft.

A natural scrub that you can make at home is going to be gentler on your skin. So you shouldn’t have to worry about any reaction, especially if you have sensitive skin. So it’s definitely worth it to learn how to make your own sugar scrubs at home.

The Benefits Of Using Homemade Sugar Scrubs

  • The right scrubs give your skin the boost it needs to look radiant.
  • Sugar scrubs exfoliate your skin and clean your pores, leaving you with soft, smooth, and younger-looking skin.

All you need are a handful of ingredients, some containers, and a little time to whip up a sugar scrub that could be given as a thoughtful gift to a woman you know.

Before You Go…

As I’ve said before, scrubs make looking after your skin so much more fun. I’ve never been a fan of using store-bought washes.

And if you like to make other bath and body products, I also have another post on the best bath bomb recipes that you may like.

I just made bath salts for my 1st time. I used coconut oil to keep the essenence oils from irritating the skin. I bought from Hobby Lobby. Like coconut milk, it has a solid mass until you heat it. I’ve got Coconut Oil that I bought for frying at the grocer. Is that the same stuff?
Thanks for your time!!
