Like us, do you tend to use your summer season as an opportunity to unwind from all the stresses of the year, doing whatever you can to relax and practice self care? Then we’d be willing to bet that you’re just as familiar with the de-stressing benefits of a good face and body sugar scrub as we are! We love to make these ourselves because we find that DIY recipes offer way more interesting options for scents than the store bought kind. We make the often though and repeating the same kind over and over isn’t always the most interesting thing, so we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for all kinds of new re-invigorating recipes to try!
1. Chocolate and sugar face scrub
Are you the kind of sweets lover who thinks that every single part of your life is better when there’s chocolate involved, up to and including your bath products? Well, we happen to think that chocolate belongs everywhere and not just in the food world too, so we’re sure it’ll come as no surprise to you at all to learn that we were all about this fantastic chocolate and sugar face scrub from Homemade for Elle when we made it! It smells just like your favourite thing.
2. Honey and brown sugar scrub
Do you really love the idea of making a sugar scrub that’s even sweeter than the mere involvement of sugar would already make it, but you’re just not sure that the rich smells of chocolate are quite the route you’d like to take? Then we have a feeling you’d get along a little better with something like this brown sugar and honey face scrub instead! Take a look at Hello Glow to see how it’s done.
3. Green tea face and body scrub
If you ask us, one of the most invigorating possible scents and ingredients to work wth them it comes to face products has always been green tea! There’s just something about it that makes our skin feel awake and alive, ready to take on the day. That’s why we’re such big fans of this green tea face and body scrub recipe featured step by step on Dear Crissy.
4. Ginger and coconut oil sugar scrub for face and body
Do you actually find that, even though you love sugar scrubs and the way they exfoliate your face, you prefer them to be a little heavier on the soothing oils and less so on the granules since your skin is slightly sensitive? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Food For My Family made this ginger and coconut oil scrub for both face and body. The ginger will make you feel revitalized and awake!
