Sadly, I don't have someone willing to exfoliate my skin for me at home. Summer is here and bare skin is essential, so exfoliation? a must! So, I'm sharing my awesometastic soothing Lavender Sugar Scrub.
Lavender Sugar Scrub
1 part sugar
2 parts oil
vitamin E capsuls
Lavender essential oil
For my scrub, I use Sunflower oil. I just happen to have a huge bottle from my homemade facial cleanser (you can read about that here) Olive oil is totally acceptable as well. You could substitute Lavender oil for whatever fragrance you'd like... again, I just happen to 1. love lavender and 2. have it on hand.
For my scrub, I gathered all my ingredients and a cute little jar I picked up recently at Ikea
I added a cup of sugar, and a smidge more than 1/2 cup of sunflower oil (personal preference, I like a bit more oil).
Next, I punctured 4 vitamin E capsuls, and squished the liquid out into my scrub
please excuse my out of focus edamame thawing in the background :)
Next up, 5 or 6 drops of lavender essential oil
Give it a quick stir and VOILA! you have a wonder sugar scrub!
Does anyone else make their own scrubs? What's your favorite recipe?
