Summer is definitely a pretty great time of year. A favorite, thanks to all the beach vacations and time we spend in the sun. With these rising temperatures often comes more skin on show, and thus, more intensive beauty rituals. One of my beauty rituals that is reintroduced in full force during my summer routine is exfoliation. Being fair, I can usually get away with less exfoliating in the chillier months. Most of my skin is covered up anyway. But once Summer comes around, my skin, brutalized by the heat, sun, and sweat, definitely needs a bit more TLC. Thankfully, I’ve got an easy DIY Brown Sugar Body Scrub to help us all out. All you need is your SkinOwl Body Oil and a little brown sugar to keep ashy, dull, and even peeling skin at bay.
Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipe
As I mentioned before, this recipe is effortless to recreate. Here’s everything you need:
- SkinOwl Body Oil
- 1 cup of Brown Sugar
First, measure out your brown sugar into a small mixing bowl. I prefer brown sugar because it has fine granules which are soft and gentle on the skin. This way you can scrub away dead skin cells without causing any damage to the delicate skin’s surface. Next, add as many squirts of SkinOwl Body Oil as you need to get to the consistency you want. I used 12 squirts. Then, mix until thoroughly blended. Your scrub should be the consistency of dough and should hold its shape when compressed or squeezed. Finally, put your finished scrub in a sealed container and it will hold over 6 months. I recycled an old SkinOwl Beauty Steam jar.
This Brown Sugar Body Scrub is a must have addition to my shower routine. My favorite way to use it is to exfoliate my legs before I shave. It’s also great to prep your skin before fake tanning or even going out in the sun. Exfoliating will help your tan stay longer. Plus, the SkinOwl Body Oil adds amazing extra benefits to the scrub with its antioxidants and pure plant oils which rejuvenate the skin. It also helps visibly reduce the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles, and dark spots!
