DIY Beauty: Body Scrub
Published Apr 11, 2011
Last week we discussed our favorite body scrubs that are great for exfoliating your skin and leaving it baby soft. Though they are easily accessible to purchase, you can create your own body scrub at home with ingredients you probably already have lying around. Buff while you're in shower to reveal baby soft and supple skin!
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ground oatmeal - Not the instant kind
1/4 cup pure honey
3/4 to 1 cup of oil - Example: Extra virgin olive, Jojoba, Grapeseed or Sweet Almond oil
1/4 teaspoon of essential or fragrance oil - Optional
Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl or clean container. In the shower, use gentle circular motions to buff the scrub onto your body and thoroughly wash it off with warm water.
