MAKE IT YOURSELF MONDAY - SUGAR SCRUB


You know those wonderful yet expensive sugar scrubs that make you ooo and ahh? Did you know you can make them yourself? For cheap and the items you usually keep in your home at all times! Imagine that! Custom sugar scrub whenever you want. Now sugar may not be good for you internally but your skin loves it. Why? It's a great exfoliate that is gentle yet effective. Its fine texture gently exfoliates the skin without leaving harmful residue that can clog the pores. Skin exfoliation removes dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil without drying the skin. It can help reduce problems with your feet, such as calloused and cracked heels. It's great for your elbows with calloused skin as well. 

Ready to give it a try?

My Basic Recipe:
½ cup sugar (I prefer brown sugar but white sugar is fine and cheaper)
2 – 3 tablespoons oil (olive, coconut, jojoba, almond all excellent choices)
2 – 3 tablespoons Aloe
