How To Easily Make The Most Moisturizing Body Scrub
Anyone that knows me knows how much I love my skincare products. I’m the first one ready to test something new and always give my honest opinion about the end results. I’ve purchased both high-end and store-bought face and body care products and never judge them by how much they are but rather – do they work?
I’ve spent a lot on facial and body scrubs and since I used them a lot, the thought occurred to me to why not try my hand at making one myself. After mixing a batch, packaging it up pretty, and testing it for a few days, I’m so glad I did. I’m super happy to report that my homemade body scrub works just as good (if not better in some cases) than any store-bought scrub.
With that said, I’m going to show you just how I made mine and how you can easily make one too!
It’s super moisturizing – and that’s what I was looking for in a scrub. Scrubs tend to dry your skin out and if they don’t have moisturizing ingredients in them, you will have to spend more time post moisturizing than you like.
Heres the list of ingredients I used to make this body and face scrub:
- Raw Sugar – 1-2 Cups
- Coconut Oil (Equal portions – I used about one and a half cups)
- Derma-e Cleansing Oil – 1 tablespoon (you can omit this if you have argon oil)
- Argon Oil – 1 tablespoon (you can use both the Derma-e and Argon Oil if you really want it heavily moisturizing)
- Essential Oil for Fragrance (you can omit this as well)
I love using raw sugar because it’s all natural and the grains are coarse. I like using a coarser grain because I noticed I get a very deep penetrating scrub from them.
I also took the coconut oil to the microwave for about 20 seconds before I started mixing. You don’t need an expensive coconut oil either. Find one on sale like I did as well.
Be sure to mix well. Keep pressing down on the mixture until all the coconut oil is blended well with the raw sugar. It should look something like this.
I love Derma-E products and have tested, love, and use several of them daily. That’s why I decided to add a tablespoon of their Derma-e Nourishing Rose Oil to the scrub. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized with a soft and dewy appearance, and I love that! And it’s great for removing makeup gently as well. It’s one of my favorite products of theirs. That’s why I thought it would be for this scrub and it turns out it is!
Another wonderful skin care product I used regularly is Argon Oil. Ever since I started using it a few years ago, it’s become a staple part of my skin care routine. It’s also great for your hair too so be sure to look into it.
If you need to add more raw sugar you can – you don’t want the mix too watery or too dry. Below, you can see it’s wet enough but not overly wet.
I love a little bit of scent in my scrub so I decided to add a few drops of essential oils to the mix. I didn’t want it overly scented because I do use scrubs on my face as well.
Find a Mason Jar you have lying around or some other container and start packing it in. If you are gifting it, you can go all the way and decorate the jar. I don’t like using paper labels on my homemade products because they become a huge mess as I use the scrub almost daily. I use some plastic decorative elements so they can take a beating and not fall off and get all yucky.
You can also label the top of the jar as well with some marker or a printed label will do just fine as well.
This scrub is simply divine! I love how deeply moisturizing it is. I love to use it in the shower as well this way it’s easier to wash off while you still retain all the moisturizing benefits. Below, you can see just how grainy the raw sugar is and the wonderful layer of argon oil along with it.
After I wash it off, my skin feels so wonderful! Since I am always in a state of either furniture painting, crafting, cooking, or cleaning – my hands take a beating and suffer so much from it. That’s why I use this scrub on my hands daily. You can see below how moisturized my hand is right after this scrub. I am so thrilled with it! Now, I don’t have to spend money on scrubs when I can make my own!
Be sure to make one of these scrubs for yourself or for a gift. I promise you, you will love it as much as I do!
