Hydrating sugar scrub
This scrub is great for the winter months especially when your skin is dry from the change of climate. (may not be suitable on very sensitive skin).
Choose what sugar you would like to use, I use coconut sugar but you can use ‘regular’ brown sugar or whatever you prefer. Then choose an oil that you would like to combine with your sugar. You can use your favourite or any of the following: Macadamia oil, Avocado oil, Olive oil or melted butters like coconut butter. (The oils will hydrate your skin while your pores are open in the shower or bath). You want 1 part oil to 2 parts sugar. You can use anything from a few tablespoons to a cup of sugar depending how much you want to make. Place half that amount of oil. Mix with a spoon. If you want your scrub to smell yummy, drop your fave essential oil into your mixture. Mix with spoon.
Your scrub is now ready to use! Either in the shower or bath, take a bath mitt, or you can use your hands and grab a spoonful of the mixture into your palms or your mitt and rub the mixture all over your body in circular motions. On places like the chest, neck, and stomach, where the skin is thinner, take it easy with the scrubbing and instead use cleanser on a washcloth to exfoliate.
Once entire body is scrubbed well, rinse thoroughly. Pat skin dry. You should feel lovely and cleansed. The sugar should have exfoliated your skin nicely (with the help of the loofah) and the oil should leave skin soft and moisturised. You might even not need to follow with a moisturiser.
ENJOY! Love from Holly ♥
