Homemade body scrubs with just Sugar
Shout Hallelujah !!!!!!!
We have found the best remedy for various issues concerning the body, whats the cure? Its SUGAR !!!! What we all have in our houses but prefer to stuff our body system with it or keep away from it because of health issues can now be used to your own advantage.
Here are some of the remedies:
1. BANANA BODY SUGAR SCRUB
When the bananas are gradually becoming brown, grab those beauties and put them to use. This one skips the oil and relies purely on the benefit of banana and the gently abrasive sugar.
- 1 ripe banana
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract or your favorite essential oil (optional)
Smash ingredients together with a fork into a chunky goop. Don’t over-mash or it will become too thin. If you want a banana scrub for your face, reserve some of the banana and mash it separately without sugar. In the shower, pat the sugar mixture and gently massage over your body. For your face, gently massage plain banana there, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off with warm water.
2. SUGARY MINTY LIP SCRUB
For soft lips, this quick treatment is the ultimate treatment to make you a smooth kisser. Blend a bit jojoba or olive oil with caster sugar (also known as superfine sugar; you can also make your own by putting regular granulated sugar in the food processor for a minute) and a touch of peppermint or vanilla extract. Place some of the paste on your lips, massage and lick off.
3. VANILLA COCONUT BROWN SUGAR SCRUB
Coconut oil is subtly fragrant and slightly miraculous. This one is a super moisturizer, and can practically double as dessert.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix ingredients together. Rub on skin while in the shower, massage, and rinse.
4. CITRUS SALT AND SUGAR SCRUB
This will wake you up, great for the morning shower or after sports.
- 1/2 cup sea salt
- 1/2 cup oil of your choice (jojoba, almond, olive, whatever)
- 1 teaspoon citrus zest (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit or a mix)
Mix ingredients together. Rub on skin while in the shower (avoiding eyes) and rinse off.
