DIY Sugar Scrubs for Sophisticated Exfoliation

By Sherika Tenaya

When it comes to smooth, petal-soft skin, there are two essentials required to maximize emollience. The first all-important step is exfoliation to clear away the dirt, dead skin cells and everyday grime of a life well-lived. Secondly, moisturizing the freshly exfoliated skin with products that contain only the highest quality ingredients.

We have you covered when it comes to moisturizing your skin, whether it be our signature glycerine hand cream that’s renowned for smoothing even the most harshly callused palms and cracked fingers or our vast line of delicious smelling, hand-made body butters that synergize the powerful action of several deeply penetrative emollients, such as nourishing sweet almond oil and healing vitamin E.

Save money on your exfoliation situation by making your own sugar scrubs at home using simple ingredients from your kitchen.

While eating sugar is extremely bad for your health and skin, putting it on topically is another story. You can use sugar scrubs on your face, body, hands and feet and what’s even more amazing is that they last on the counter for up to 2 months, sometimes even longer!

You can make a simple Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub for your exfoliation component which then pairs beautifully with our Tuscan Honey body cream for moisturization. It takes less than ten minutes to whip up this lovely scrub. Here’s how:

Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup sweet almond oil

½ teaspoon Vitamin E oil

1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

Simply mix all the ingredients together and massage on your skin in gentle, small circles. Make sure to massage in the direction towards your heart to promote blood flow.

If you love your fall time pumpkin spiced everything, then maybe flavor your sugar scrub to reflect the holiday season.

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup coconut oil

½ teaspoon Vitamin E oil

½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spices (or simply use cinnamon)

Use this scrub on your hands after washing dishes. Follow up with our Vitamin E unscented glycerine hand therapy to deeply moisturize without losing the lovely pumpkin spice scent.

If you’re a coffee lover like I am, then consider using your beloved bean in a new way: add it to a sugar scrub. As Katie, the brainchild behind the award winning website www.wellnessmama.com says, “Coffee scrubs can be beneficial in reducing cellulite. Massaging and exfoliating [with coffee scrubs] benefits skin by stimulating blood/lymph flow and the caffeine in the coffee has a tightening effect.”

This cellulite-busting scrub looks and smells sophisticated enough to be found in a spa, but with easy-to-find ingredients, it can be made relatively inexpensively at home.

  1. Place the coffee and sugar in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Add the vanilla and mix well.
  3. Add the oils and stir with a fork or the back of a spoon until well mixed and moistened.
  4. Store in an air-tight container and use as desired. Especially good for helping with cellulite.

This scrub is beautifully complimented by our delicately scented French Vanilla body cream, which locks in the moisture from the scrub and leaves your skin radiant throughout your day.

Try these simple recipes and revel not only in the newfound silken softness of your skin, but also the money-saving sophistication of making sugar scrubs at home. And don’t forget - the savings only multiply when you make these sugar scrubs for your friends and family as gifts!
