If there’s one thing that I do every year in the beginning of summer, in order to prepare myself for the beach season, is making home made body scrubs. Since I believe every body is a beach body, I think that all we really need in order to feel good at the beach is a positive body image. And maybe a pretty swimming suit and smooth skin! Or at least I know that my post-long-winter and after-cold-spring skin, loves body these scrubs! And because these home made body scrubs are made from natural ingredients, they leave skin smooth, exfoliated and nourished!
And I’m sure that you already have all the ingredients in your pantry!
So here’s the fist body scrub that I love making: Coffee and Vanilla sugar scrub! If you’re a coffee lover like I am then you’ll love it too! Because self care and coffee go hand in hand right?
Here’s what you need:
- 3 tablespoons of coffee grounds
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
Mix coffee grounds and brown sugar. Add coconut oil and in the end add vanilla essence. Mix it all together until really smooth. Pour in a small jar and use within 3 days ( best to keep it in the fridge until use) or make some more and offer as a gift!
Second body scrub that I love making is this Green Tea Body Scrub. Smells so good and exfoliates like nothing else!
All you need:
- 1 cup of green tea
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Mix it all together until smooth. You can keep it for one to two weeks. No need for refrigerating this one, as its more of a dry scrub.
So if you haven’t yet tried making your own body scrubs, and are still paying for the super expensive body scrubs, please give these a try! You’ll see how much softer your sin will feel not to mention the money you’ll save!
