DIY Natural Body Scrubs
When you’ve finished a long hard day at the office, there’s nothing better than slipping into a lovely bubble bath for some much-needed pamper time. Improve your downtime by adding some skincare products into your pamper routine to help wash away the stresses of the day, adding a couple of lavender essential oil drops into your bath can be a great way to unwind before bed.
There is a wide range of bath products on offer, however, if you don’t have any in - why not try making your own at home? We have two super simple homemade body scrub recipes, using just a few ingredients such as sugar, coconut oil and essential oil that will help your skin to feel refreshed and silky smooth.
If you have quite sensitive skin, try making a small amount of the scrub/s and applying to a smaller area of your skin to test first!
Glowing Green Tea Body Scrub Exfoliator
You will need:
- 200g Dark Brown Sugar
- 4 tbsp Runny Honey
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil (or preferred body oil, such as almond or coconut)
- 2 tbsp Green Tea Leaves (Loose)
Add the dark brown sugar into a bowl, mix in the runny honey, oil and green tea leaves.
Once well mixed, apply your DIY body scrub to elbows, feet, legs, etc and rub in a circular motion to exfoliate and remove any dead skin. Once finished, rinse the product off and wash the area with a mild body wash - et voila, silky smooth skin using just 4 ingredients!
Homemade Peppermint and Coconut Foot Scrub
You will need:
- 200g Coconut Oil
- 50g Caster Sugar
- 6 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 1 tsp Dried Mint (Optional)
Mix together the coconut oil and sugar in a bowl, add in the peppermint essential oil (feel free to add more or less if you’re not satisfied with the level of mintiness) and mix in the dried mint too (if using). Once the scrub is well mixed, use as a foot or body scrub. Once exfoliated, rinse the mixture off and wash with mild body wash to remove any residue and reveal your super smooth soles!
