So many of us wonder how to improve our skin. If your skin looks bad, everyone sees it.

What is a sugar scrub?

When I worked in the corporate world, I had a lot of compliments on my skin. Especially my legs. I wore dresses and skirts every day because I knew that my legs looked good. The key to my great skin is exfoliation. Exfoliation needs to be in your routine. It is what aids in the removal of dead skin cells.  Exfoliation also prevents little white bumps (almost like a white head but you can’t pop).  These pop up around the nose. If you get these, you are not exfoliating enough.  Be gentle. You are just sloughing off loose and dead surface cells. Also important is hydrating your skin once you remove the dead skin cells.

Sugar scrubs are simply an exfoliator.

I prefer chemical free, natural, granular exfoliation scrubs. You know, like those containing sugar or coffee, oil, and the essential oils you like. Sugar is a great option as a natural source of glycolic acid. Glycolic acid will encourage cell turnover thereby generating younger looking skin. As someone on the keto/low carb diet, I avoid sugar for my health so how ironic is it that it helps your skin?! Also ironic is how amazing they smell and being natural, you may be tempted to eat them. But don’t.Its main purpose is to help exfoliate your skin. You need to remove the dead skin cells so the new blood can flourish and shine.

 

Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid and glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that penetrates and breaks down the bonds that hold skin cells together encouraging cell turnover and generating younger looking skin.

Another great thing about your own scrub is that you are not harming the environment. Companies were using plastic beads as the scrub that was clogging our waters. These DIY scrubs I have compiled for you are made from natural ingredients and are bio-degradable.

While those fancy scrubs you buy are harsh and chemical ridden are expensive, these natural scrubs are not expensive at all and take about 5 minutes to make. The most expensive part will be what you select for storage. Select something that seals well. This can be a simple plastic container, but remember, these scrubs are beautiful. You can store them in some beautiful jars and set on the counter.  These scrubs will not only leave you clean but leave you glowing.

Great for your skin. Great for the environment. Cost less. Win-win in my book!

Delicious Scrub

Carlee at Deliciously Organized says: Scrubs are a wonderful way to gently exfoliate and leave you feeling fresh and renewed. Making your own is a breeze, and most the time you can use what you already have at home. I start with a recycled jar, and then add a little bit of the salt, sugar, coconut oil {one at a time so I can control the consistency} and then add the rest of the ingredients.

Vanilla Bean Sugar Scrub

Vanilla Bean and few dried lavender buds scents pair so well together, plus it gives the scrub some extra texture and visual interest. Lavender is so relaxing, and many of us are often stressed out this time of year that I thought it would make for a pleasant gift. From Good Life Eats

Ashley at Sugar & Cloth says: Three reasons to make your own: it’s all natural, you can make generous quantities, and keeping your skin healthy shouldn’t cost you the arm you’re exfoliating.

First off, let me just say that I am a new fan of Bev’s at Bev Cooks! Her wit keeps me entertained 🙂 Anyway, of her scrub she says:

First of all, it SMELLS MARVELOUS. Coffee plus coconut, are you even kidding?

Second of all, it takes 15 seconds to pull together. You’re totally ready for spa day before you can say, “totally ready for spa day.”

Third of all, it’s free! (If you already have coconut oil, which obviously you do.)

Fourth of all, it’s saving the planet! You like saving the planet, don’t you? Yes.

Fifth of all, your.skin.will.be.so.soft.it’s.straight.ridic.
