I love using a sugar scrub to exfoliate and moisturize my skin. Whip up a batch of your own at home to pamper your skin or to gift a batch to a loved one.
Mix 2/3 c. dark brown sugar, 1/2 c. almond oil (you can use vegetable oil), 10 drops vitamin E (I puncture and squeeze a vitamin E liquid capsule) or glycerin, any 10 drops of any other essential oil you might want to add .
Mix ingredients together before use. Rub the sugar scrub mixture in small circles on dry skin. Concentrate on tough areas, such as elbow and heals (careful, shower may get slippery). Rinse off completely when finished.
Store in small plastic or glass jars. This is the perfect use for recycling baby food jars. I used metal tins I had on hand, I just need to get my hands on some baby food jars.
*If you have raw brown sugar, use 1/3 c. brown sugar and 1/3 c. raw brown sugar.
*Limit use to 3 x’s per week (I use once a week in the winter and 3 x’s during the summer).
*Continue pampering yourself with a soothing salt soak or cold eye pillow.

I buy my sugar scrub from Bath & Body Works, but it would less expensive to make it.
Yes, def! And you don’t have the added harsh chemicals.
