Sugar scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and nourish your skin, but they can be expensive to buy. Fortunately, making your own sugar scrub at home is easy and affordable and today we’ll show you how. 

Did you know that sugar is a natural exfoliant that gently removes dead skin cells, revealing the fresh and smooth skin underneath? This can help to improve the texture and appearance of your skin, and may also help to unclog pores and reduce the appearance of acne.

Second, sugar scrubs are typically made with oils like coconut or olive oil, which can help to moisturize and nourish the skin. These oils can penetrate deep into the skin to provide long-lasting hydration and help to prevent dryness, flaking, and itching.

Third, sugar scrubs can also be infused with essential oils, which can provide additional benefits for the skin. Some essential oils, such as tea tree oil, can help to fight acne, while others, such as lavender oil, can help to soothe and calm irritated skin.

Overall, sugar scrubs can be a great addition to your skin care routine, helping to exfoliate, moisturize and nourish your skin for a healthy, youthful-looking appearance.


  • ½ granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup of coconut oil or olive oil
  • A few drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)

How to Make:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar and coconut oil or olive oil. Mix well until you get a coarse, sandy texture. If you want to add a scent to your scrub, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil. 
  2. Mix everything together until well combined.
  3. Store your sugar scrub in an airtight container or jar.

How to Use:

To use your sugar scrub, simply scoop out a small amount and gently massage it onto your skin in circular motions. Be sure to avoid sensitive areas like the eyes and lips. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. Use the sugar scrub once or twice a week to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth.


Note: Want to make your scrub even fancier? You can also add herbs like rosemary or dried flowers like roses to the blend to take it to the next level. 

Enjoy your homemade sugar scrub and pamper yourself with a spa-like experience at home.
