11 DIY Sugar Scrubs for Beautiful and Happy Skin

Sugar Scrub Your Way to Beautiful Skin

There never seems to be enough time to pamper yourself. You’re running all around making sure the world doesn’t fall apart but sometimes you just want to take a break and get yourself a sugar scrub treatment. If you aren’t sure what sugar scrubs are then you are certainly missing out!

A sugar scrub is a compound that contains sugar to help give you beautiful skin. But wait sugar?

Yes, sugar!

Why does sugar work? Because sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. So when you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives, they’ll actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within.

Who would’ve guessed?

One of the best things about sugar scrubs is that you can make your own and you can make them in a variety of scents!

And you aren’t regulated to some basic scents like grape or strawberry. No, no, no!

You can get really creative with your sugar scrub scents and I’ve compiled a list of 11 of my favorite ones.

11 DIY Sugar Scrubs You Can Make Today

You’ll actually be surprised at how easy it is to make sugar scrubs.

They’re actually ideal for Christmas and birthday presents so if you’re going to spend the time to make a container of one, you might as well make a couple extra for those times you need to give your girlfriend something to enjoy.

I do have to warn you though, that all of these scrubs smell delicious but don’t get any wild ideas about eating them. Of course, you’re going to need some containers to store your sugar scrubs and I like to use these hexagon glass jars because they are different and look stylish.

Make yourself some fat bombs if you have the urge to go crazy on the sweets.
