Sugar Scrub DIY Recipe


This coconut oil and sugar scrub DIY recipe was created to offer people with more sensitive skin an alternative facial scrub to the one I previously posted.

The scrub makes use of raw unprocessed sugar to provide the gentle exfoliation, while the coconut oil removes all traces of makeup and dust from your skin.

When it comes to putting products on the face I like to keep it as basic as possible and keep the processed items to a minimum. Hence the raw sugar used for this facial scrub. You can, however, use normal white sugar or brown sugar if this is your preference or find raw sugar hard to come by. Raw sugar crystals are smaller and finer than normal white sugar and allow for a gentle exfoliation of dead skin cells without being too abrasive.

The coconut oil and baking powder take care of removing toxins, dust, and makeup off the surface of the skin. Also, due to their antibacterial properties, they also help cleanse the skin and keep acne at bay. Coconut oil is wonderfully delicate and also very nutritious for our skin, therefore an ideal ingredient for skin care.

This coconut oil and sugar scrub DIY recipe is ideal for anyone looking for a gentle and effective skin exfoliant.  I do not recommend using a face scrub more than 3 times a week or even less if you have sensitive skin.
