A beauty routine is a personal thing, isn’t it?
Some of us buff, some of us scrub, some of us brush, some of us tweeze, some of us curl.
I am a wash-er, exfoliate-er, cream smear-er, waxin’ freak.
A homemade sugar & salt scrub to be more exact.
If you’re looking for a good place to start making homemade items, well then my friends, this is the perfect place to start. Mixing up this scrub takes approximately forty five seconds.
It’s faster than scrambling an egg.
It’s faster than changing a diaper.
It’s faster than sweeping dog hair off your floors.
And it’s definitely faster than doing dishes.
So procrastinate on all those tasks and make this instead. After forty five seconds, you’ll feel so proud of yourself, you’ll just breeze through your remaining ‘to-do’ list with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
And I’m not even being dramatic.
Sugar & Salt Body Scrub
You will need:
– 1/4 cup sugar (this is one of my only recipes I use white sugar for!)
– 1/4 cup sea salt
– 1/4 cup coconut oil
– 20 drops lavender oil and 20 drops peppermint oil (or essential oil of your choice!)
Step One: Combine the sugar, salt, and coconut oil in a bowl.
Step Two: Use a fork to smoosh it all together.
Step Three: Add in your essential oils… and smoosh a little bit more.
BAM!! And that your face scrub. Told ya it was fast.
To use, I simply use my fingers to scoop out a nickel-sized dollop of the cream and use my fingertips to massage it onto my face and neck. After I wash off my makeup with castile soap, of course.
It’s heavenly and the coconut oil leaves my skin super soft and moisturized.
