DIY Brown Sugar Body Scrub

Keeping your body exfoliated is so important. It will help your moisturizer do it's work (it can't penetrate through all that dead dry skin), improve circulation and leave your skin fresh and glowing.

Exfoliants are so easy to make at home and should be part of your regular beauty routine. I use mine in the shower as they tend to be a bit messy and it makes for easy clean up.

You can use any oil you like but my preference is coconut oil as it makes such a lovely moisturizer and there's no smell. I start with a half cup.

Next you add in your brown sugar, you can vary this depending on how "gritty" you want it. This is a half cup which is lovely for hands and not too harsh to use on the lips, but I would up it to three quarters to a full cup for a really good body scrub.

Next I added in a half a teaspoon of vanilla. This makes it very sweet and almost cookie dough smelling...yum! If you prefer you can omit the vanilla and replace it with your favourite essential oil.

Give it a good mix and you're done, it's as easy as that.

After that all you need is a cute container to store it in and you're good to go.
