Nothing beats some good old “me-time” on the weekend when you decide to do away with all of life’s hassles and only focus on yourself. Everyone deserves to indulge in some self-love. And there is no better way to do that than to make a fresh DIY body scrub.
Here are the fanciest homemade body scrubs that are not only ridiculously easy to make but leave you with baby-soft skin.
1. Honey and Brown Sugar Body Scrub
Honey is not only deliciously sweet to our taste buds, but it is also wonderful for our skin. Combined with soft brown sugar, this scrub will help get rid of all the dead skin and will sufficiently nourish your body. And the heavenly smell it leaves after you’ve washed up is an added bonus!
- 3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 5 Tbsp Honey
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
Mix all the ingredients up nicely and store in a bottle for up to a week.
2. Coffee and Coconut Scrub
Coffee isn’t only made to awaken your senses in the morning, but it is also an amazing body scrub. Mix a few spoons of nourishing pure coconut oil and you will have a lovely tropical scrub for an entire week.
Rubbing coffee granules on the body will instantly increase the blood circulation, while the coconut oil will seep deep into the skin to moisturize it.
- 5 Tbsp Ground Coffee
- 2 Tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 4 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- 3 Drops Chamomile Essential Oil
- Store up to two weeks.
3. Green Tea and Lemon Scrub
An excellent pick-me-up, green tea is the best ingredient to tighten your pores, fade away stubborn scars, and soothe irritated skin. Lemon juice is a brilliant natural lightening agent that not only sloughs away dead skin but pushes newer, brighter skin cells to the surface.
You can use this scrub on your dark elbows, underarms, and knees to get the dead skin off.
- 1 Cup Green Tea (Brewed)
- 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- ½ cup Lemon Juice
Mix all the ingredients over simmering heat and store up to a week.
So whip up one of these luscious body scrubs and get ready for a nourishing treatment.
