When it comes to keeping your skin looking renewed, refreshed and youthful, it’s tough to beat a body scrub. And while there are plenty of great options for purchase from companies like Callyssee Cosmetics, it’s also possible to DIY your own homemade body scrub. Here are a few options to try.
4 Simple Homemade Body Scrub Recipes to Try
#1 DIY Coffee Scrub
#2 Green Tea Scrub
If you want to try a scrub that provides its antioxidant punch from tea instead of coffee, give this one a try. Start by mixing 3 cups of Epsom salts with 3 tablespoons of baking soda and then add 4 tablespoons of grapeseed oil. Once that’s all mixed together thoroughly. Cut open a green tea bag, dump in the contents and also add some drop of your favorite essential oils. Mix it together, and it’s ready to go.
#3 Simple Sugar Scrub
To derive the exfoliating benefits of sugar, all that you have to do is simply mix 1 ½ cups of coarse sugar with a ½ cup of olive oil. Add about 10 drops of your favorite essential oil, and mix it all together. That’s all there is to it!
#4 Super Salt Scrub
Salt is another great exfoliating ingredient. And all you need to derive its benefits from a body scrub is equal parts sea salt and your favorite oil (olive is a good choice). And some citrus zest for a great aroma, and rub it on in the shower before rinsing off thoroughly. It will keep you feeling renewed and refreshed as you go about the rest of your day.
