DIY Pampering

Am I the only one that sees a DIY sugar scrub on Pinterest and then wants to simultaneously eat it AND slather myself in it?

*crickets*

Just me?  Fine then.

I’ll have you know that I made two such sugar scrubs today and not only do they give you luxuriously smooth skin, but they do in fact taste…ok.  Like, they’re edible, but truthfully not as delicious I fantasized they would be.  So, rest easy, you won’t resort to wolfing down your sugar scrub when you go on a rebellious sugar/carb binge.

DIY Lemon Sugar Scrub

DIY Vanilla Sugar Scrub

They look good enough to eat, right?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A container to hold your scrub.  I used 8 oz. canning jars, so my ingredient measurements will be based on that.  You’ll need to work out the appropriate amounts based on your container size.  But, mostly I just eye-balled it.  Or, more appropriately, finger tested it.  I mixed everything together then rubbed it between my finger tips and added a bit of this or that depending on if I wanted it smoother or rougher.  This is not a science, I promise.
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, per 8 oz container
  • 1/8 cup of olive oil, per 8 oz container
  • Juice of one Lemon for the lemon scrub
  • 1 T of vanilla for the Vanilla scrub

I mixed my ingredients right in the little jar. I didn’t fill the jar completely.  I left a little bit of room because my only concern with these cute little jars is that I will be a klutz in the shower and spill the scrub everywhere if it is too close to the top.

I tried the vanilla tonight and I swear, I’m not just saying this, my skin feels AMAZING.  It’s, like, buffed and shiny and smooth and I smell yummy, too!  I can’t wait to give the lemon a whirl. I think it will be very refreshing in the morning.

Now all I can think about is what other flavor combos to try!  Any ideas??
