DIY Brown Sugar Moisturizing Scrub

Yesterday i uploaded my February Favorites of the month video and in it i mention a brown sugar scrub which i want to share with you.

Body scrubs is one thing that i refuse to buy from the store because one can easily make their own with ingredients from their kitchen cupboards. I am super excited to share this brown sugar scrub recipe. Ever since i started incorporating natural ingredients into my skincare i seem to have developed an addiction to it {oh, yeah its that good}

So recently I have been really into making my own scrubs and  my skin seems to be loving the outcome!

Ok so let’s get started you will need the following ingredients:

1/4 cup brown sugar

2-3 tbs EVOO (i like for my scrub to be oily) so add as little or as much as you want!

1 tbs Honey

a couple drops of vanilla extract~ Mix the above ingredients and store in an air tight container.

It should look something like this

~Use it on damp skin and once you apply scrub lightly in circular motions for about 30-60 secs.

~Rinse it off with warm water and pat dry.

You skin should be feeling soft and moisturized :)  {at this point i normally apply my eye cream and head off to bed}

This is one of my absolutely favorite scrubs, do you have a favorite scrub?leave me a comment telling me which one is it!

        Salaam Mayya….oh my, this is a very easy scrub recipe…i can get used to this everything of that in my cupboard now.

        btw, the word ‘beras’ means rice grains…(it’s in Malay)..and’s a great scrubbing ingredients. when we were younger, our mums will do this scrubbing with rice grains for the whole body once in a least my mum did.. :)
