We love our friends at Scrub Inspired and we recently had the chance to meet up and learn how to make your own scrub! The weather can take a toll on our skin and sometimes we need some help to slough off and exfoliate our skin.
Step 1: Start with your base
The base of your scrub is your foundation. Grab some sugar from your pantry, it can be any type of sugar depending on your skin type and what experience you want. For sensitive skin we'd suggest brown sugar.
Step 2: Add moisture
Can't just be rubbing dry sugar on your skin. Add some avocado oil, it absorbs wonderfully into the skin and is a great moisturizer.
Step 3: Select your Tea
If you're looking for a softer, less harsh exfoliant- feel free to pulverize your tea a bit for a finer texture. We suggest our Turmeric Tonic, turmeric is great for brightening skin and detoxifying pores. Beware- don't use a heavy hand with the tea, less is more!
Step 4: Get creative
This is the fun step where your creativity can shine. Add in some fresh fruit juices, essential oils, fresh herbs, fruit zest- you can create any scent pallet your heart (and skin) desires. Remember to be mindful of the consistency of your scrub- you want to be able to rub it on your skin but also not too moist that it falls apart.
Step 5: Store your Scrub
Reuse & Recycle. Clean out any small jar you have at home ( such as a mason jar) that has a lid.
You're all set! How easy was that? Now you can spoil yourself with homemade scrubs and have your girls over for an evening of Sipping 'n' Scrubs DIY party.
