Ingredients for Facial Sugar Scrub
You should recognize all of these ingredients. That’s the best part of homemade products. Ingredients you recognize and can pronounce. Let’s talk about these elements for a minute and why they are so great for the skin on your face.
- Sugar – I used white sugar but you can use brown sugar too.
- Coconut Oil
- Lemon Essential Oil
- Tea Tree Oil
Combine all of these ingredients together and you have one powerhouse facial treatment. Let’s get started!
Making Facial Sugar Scrub
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup brown sugar or white sugar
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 10 drops of lemon essential oil
- 5 to 10 drops of tea tree oil – This depending on how strong you need it to be. If you have more acne to treat go for more. No acne, go for less.
Storing Facial Sugar Scrub
You don’t need to keep sugar scrub in the fridge. It can sit on the counter, in the shower, or in your bathroom cabinet. The amounts I used for this recipe will only make enough sugar scrub for 3 or 4 face washes.
Depending on how often you use your scrub means this will last for 2 – 4 weeks. You can double the recipe if you prefer because the scrub will stay good for 2 months.
Try not to get water mixed in as the water can break down the sugar and cause the scrub to be less impressive.
Benefits of Using A Facial Sugar Scrub
Besides being fun to make and use, there a many reasons you should throw together your own face scrub.
Great for Your Skin
If you read all about the ingredients above then it’s easy to start seeing the benefits of using a sugar scrub on your face. Each ingredient was chosen for this facial scrub because they each contribute to many skin issues people deal with.
When used accordingly, this facial sugar scrub will leave you with smooth and silky skin. It will help knock out acne by clearing out pores and using all those antibacterial and anti fungal properties.
Rubbing the sugar scrub on your face exfoliates the skin and increases blood flow, which helps bring about healthy, glowing skin. Who doesn’t want that? It also just feels amazing going on, giving you a mini pampering session. I’m all about finding ways to treat yo’ self through out the week.
Do keep in mind that this power packed sugar scrub should only be used once or twice a week. If you overuse the scrub it can be too much for your sensitive facial skin and actually cause damage. This could lead to inflammation and breakouts which is the opposite reaction we want.
Great for Your Wallet
Buying sugar scrubs can get expensive. A couple ounces of facial scrub for over ten bucks! Really? Making your own sugar scrub is a fraction of the cost of buying them online and in stores. There’s no point buying skin care products that you can easily make yourself for much less.
These also make GREAT gifts! Let’s be honest, they are easy and cheap but have meaning. I love gifts like this. I have given face scrubs for teacher appreciation gifts, random gifts, thank you gifts, Mother’s Day, Christmas….you name it!
It is also great because you make one face scrub and give it to someone and they will run out eventually and need a new one. Or you can switch up the ingredients and make the next one slightly different.
My daughter’s teacher this year was also my son’s teacher a few years before. I made her dry shampoo when she taught him. Well, when she started teaching my daughter she requested more! I was so thrilled to make her some. Homemade, practical gifts are always a hit!
Gifts can also get expensive. Giving sugar scrub as gifts is a great way to save some cash. So make a huge batch and break it down into small containers and make everyone in your life ridiculously happy!
I really can’t say enough about this Easy DIY Facial Sugar Scrub for glowing skin. This scrub smells and feels amazing! It’s a great way to spoil yourself or someone else. The best part is how cheap it is to make. Hurry up and prepare your own so you can start enjoying the benefits today.
