Super Easy DIY Body Scrub5:00 AM
I have been looking at a LOT of Pintrest.com lately and finding TONS of DIY everything.. Well the make your own body scrub caught my eye.
I'm always on a search for a good body scrub and I feel like I finally found one I love!
The ingredients can vary from different sugars,oils and fragrances but this is what I used..You can customize it to what you like best.
What you need:
*Pure Mint &Peppermint Extract
*100% Pure Olive Oil
*Container for scrub
Since this is my first time trying this I didn't find any cute jars since it is just for me, I don't need something fancy! I bought some small ziploc containers that I mix the scrub right in.Then once it's all mixed I can put the lid on and it will stay moist.
The amount is just kind of random, just depends how much you want to have. Since I am using a 236 ml bowl I filled it 3/4 full.
Next add the olive oil on top of the sugar, again the amount is just depending on how much sugar you use, you just need to saturate the sugar with oil
Next add your scent! You don't need very much, just a little spill out of the bottle worked for me
Stir it up and it is done!
This was a fairly strong scrub, definitely do not use it on your face and if you have sensitive skin test out a little bit before you just use it.
This seriously made my hands feel so soft after!With a slight smell of peppermint =D I made my boyfriend try it as well and he thought it worked pretty good too!
Since I am using olive oil it is great for helping maintain the elasticity of skin,heal dry brittle nails and soften cuticles.
Have you ever tried a DIY Scrub?
