Very Easy DIY Sugar and Salt Body Scrubs         written by Simeaka Melton

Although I love “Do It Yourself” scrubs, projects and homemade treats, I am not the queen of DYI. I am merely sharing my creativity and know-how! My DIY scrubs are very easy and quick to make, take a look!

What I have learned about sugar scrubs:

I have found that homemade sugar scrubs are the most natural way to exfoliate, soften and to refresh our skin, including our lips. The fine texture of sugar gently exfoliates our skin without leaving harmful residue that clog our pores. The moisturizing properties of sugar prevent our skin from drying out. The sugar scrubs create a gentle abrasion providing a natural exfoliation, which I love.

With that being said let’s talk scrubs! I love things that sooth my skin and I equally love creating things with my own hands! For years I have used scrubs that I have created with simple ingredients from my kitchen. Of all my sugar scrubs the Coconut and Lemon Sugar Scrub is one of my top favorite so far!

I love the Coconut and Lemon Sugar Scrub for a few reasons. It smells good, coconut oil my favorite oil to use, it leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and refreshed, plus it takes no time to make.

Next let’s talk about salt scrubs.

What I have learned about salt scrubs:

It’s the Lavender Salt Scrub! I have also learned that homemade salt scrubs naturally sooths, softens and exfoliates your skin differently than sugar scrubs. Sea salt is typically used for bath salts, table salt is the least expensive which makes it my favorite salt to use for salt scrubs and epsom salt has the most relaxing properties. You may choose any type of salt you desire for your scrub, however I have chosen to use espom salt for this particular scrub. Because of the relaxing properties I feel it compliments the lavender well.

As far as salt scrubs go, my Lavender Salt Scrub is my top go to and an ideal choice for relaxation and circulation.
