DIY Body Scrub: 3 easy ways to make recipes for Healthy-looking Skin

What comes to mind when you think of pampering your skin, which has been damaged by the harsh sun’s rays, or getting rid of the dullness caused by dust particles blocking your skin pores or heavy pollution robbing your face of its radiance? Exfoliation, according to beauty experts, is the finest technique to eliminate dead skin cells, renew your skin, and restore your natural glow.

DIY Body Scrub: 3 easy ways to make recipes for Healthy-looking Skin

It’s easy to get caught up in our hectic daily routines, leaving us with a million things on our to-do lists but insufficient time to focus on our own health and beauty. Thankfully, body scrubs come to the rescue, gently exfoliating and polishing your skin to reveal a smoother, more lustrous version of yourself beneath the surface.

When selecting the correct type of body scrub for yourself, it’s critical to keep two things in mind: First, determine your skin type, and then select the appropriate ingredients for your skin type. There are many different types of body scrubs available, but some are simply too pricey, while others include harsh chemicals or unknown components that may irritate your skin over time. What is our solution? Of course, you can make your own!

We’ve compiled a list of three of the greatest DIY body scrubs to help you glow in no time. As our scrubs are completely handcrafted, you can feel assured that you’ve only utilised safe and well-known ingredients.
So let’s get started with recipes of homemade DIY body scrubs mentioned below:

DIY Body Scrub: 3 easy ways to make recipes for Healthy-looking Skin

Recipe for Lemon Body Scrub

Steam-distilled lemon essential oil is required for this preparation since it is free of furanocoumarins, which might induce sun sensitivity. Furanocoumarins help to increase UV light absorption, which is beneficial to lemons but not to skin. They’re found in cold-pressed lemon essential oil, which can cause skin to absorb too much UV rays and burn if applied 12 to 48 hours before going out in the sun.

Ingredients-

Take 1 cup sugar
1/3 to 1/2 cup carrier oil
Coconut oil and honey (optional)
30 droplets of lemon essential oil (steam distilled)

How to make It-

Stir in 1/3 cup carrier oil with lemon essential oils and if you’re using coconut oil, start by melting it over low heat. Coconut oil is recommended for better results.

Now, add honey (if you are using it) to your scrub and whisk it in with the carrier oil.

Fill a bowl with cup of sugar, then pour the oil mixture over it. Check the texture after mixing with a fork until everything is well incorporated. Add a bit more carrier oil if it’s too crumbly, and a little more sugar if it’s too runny.

That’s it fill a clean, sealed jar halfway with your homemade body scrub.

How to apply-

Scoop 2-4 tablespoons from your jar using a spoon. The ingredients will remain for months or longer if stored properly, which is why you don’t want to add water or germs to the jar.

In your palms, place the scrub. Apply in a circular motion over your entire body, concentrating on rough places like elbows, knees, and heels, until the majority of the crystals disintegrate. Because this scrub can make the shower slippery, use additional caution while using it on your feet. Personally, I would only use my feet in the bath. Also, always use body scrub on healthy skin; avoid sensitive or swollen regions.

After rinsing with warm water, pat the skin dry. Apply a moisturiser after that. Once a week is recommended, while some skin types may benefit from more frequent treatments (2-3 times per week).

Recipe for Coffee Body Scrub (Antioxidant Value and Fights Cellulite)

Coffee combined with vanilla or other fragrant oils creates a really relaxing and calming sensation while also exfoliating to your skin. Coffee’s antioxidants are said to combat cellulite and help prevent premature ageing.
Coffee grinds have a sand-like texture that works well as an exfoliator in DIY scrubs. The grounds assist to revitalise and promote circulation by gently removing dead skin cells. Exfoliates can also fill and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite momentarily.

Ingredients-

A half cup of freshly ground coffee (Fresh grounds are preferred, but dried used grounds would suffice.)
A half cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon extract de vanilla

How to make It-

Combine 1/2 cup freshly ground coffee and 1/2 cup brown sugar in a mixing bowl.
Add 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to the coffee mixture.
Mix until everything is well blended.
That’s it fill a clean, sealed jar halfway with your homemade body scrub.

Recipe for Peppermint Body Scrub

This Peppermint Sugar Scrub tastes as good as it looks! If you want to make a quick homemade gift, double or triple the recipe. Making this DIY dish in bulk is simple and economical. Furthermore, the scrub is just as good as, if not better than, the more expensive sugar scrubs found in specialty stores. This recipe makes a great “wake up scrub” because it’s both refreshing and invigorating.

Ingredients-

2 lbs. sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil or other carrier oil — depending on desired consistency, you may need more.
Food colouring in the colour of red
Essential oil of peppermint

DIY Body Scrub: 3 easy ways to make recipes for Healthy-looking Skin

How to make It-

Fill a medium mixing bowl halfway with sugar.
Stir in the coconut oil until it reaches the desired consistency.
Several drops of peppermint essential oil should be added to the mixture.
Make two equal amounts of your sugar scrub mixture.
One of the servings should have a drop or two of food coloring added to it (but not too much!)
To get a “candy cane” look, alternate pink and white layers of colored sugar in a mason jar. To condense the sugar between layers, press it down with a spoon.

How to apply-

  • Scoop 2-4 tablespoons from your jar on your palm using a spoon.
  • Rub the mixture gently over your entire body, avoiding the eyes.
  • Turn it on for a few minutes.
  • Rinse systematically.
  • After rinsing with warm water, pat the skin dry. Apply a moisturiser after that. Once a week is recommended, while some skin types may benefit from more frequent treatments (2-3 times per week).

If no essential oil is used, the shelf life is over a year if it is scooped out with a clean spoon to avoid introducing water and bacteria into the container. If essential oils are used, I suggest utilising it within 3-6 months to avoid the oils oxidising.
