Notes and Tips

  • There are, of course, different types of sugar that you can buy in the store or that you may have access to at home. The beauty of this recipe is that you can use any type of sugar for this. Granulated sugar may be a little harsher compared to something like caster, but this is really down to personal preference and what you can get your hands on.
  • When seeking out coconut oil you might want to ensure that you use a cold processed unrefined coconut oil. Sometimes, cooking coconut oil has been refined and some of the skin benefits may have been taken away. Organic virgin coconut oil will ensure that you get all of the skin benefits from your homemade sugar scrub.
  • Be careful not to overbeat the mixture. You want to create a paste-like texture.

How do I store Whipped Sugar Scrub?

You will need to store the DIY sugar scrub in an airtight jar. Doing this will ensure that the oils don’t go bad.

How long with the scrub last before needing to be used?

The average shelf life of a homemade sugar scrub is usually around six months. The tip for prolonging its life is to ensure that the lid stays on the jar as much as possible. As the jar is airtight, it preserves the oils and scrub. This also will stop the coconut oil element of the sugar scrub from going bad.

What can I use the Winter Snow sugar scrub for?

You can use the sugar scrub while you shower or in the bath. It is a great exfoliator, perfect for reminding dead skin cells or things like fake tan.
