I’ve been making this simple sugar scrub with ingredients from my pantry. It’s just 1/8 cup white sugar and 1/8 cup olive oil. I use it in the shower to scrub away the dead, flaky skin. Those of you who have experienced a hot, dry Yakima summer know exactly why that’s necessary.
This scrub is also great to use after you have been using self-tanner for a few days. It gives your skin a healthy looking glow. And no more flakes–at least for the day.
Homemade Sugar Scrub
- 1/8 cup white sugar
- 1/8 cup olive oil
- Work the mixture into your skin in a circular motion paying close attention to those extra dry spots
- Rinse off the sugar
- Air dry or lightly pat dry. The remainder of the oil will absorb into your skin leaving it soft and smooth.
- Do this once or twice a week
