How much money would you say that you spend on skincare products every year? Hundreds of dollars, right? Believe it or not, the vast majority of those skin products contain chemicals that can become toxins in the body, actually hurting your overall skin health rather than helping it. That’s one of the reasons why we suggest creating your own DIY Skin Sugar Scrub!
In this video, we are going to be talking about a super-effective and healthy Sugar Scrub that you can make yourself in no time at all. By using this scrub, you will be avoiding harmful chemical on your skin while also promoting skin health through natural ingredients. Plus, you will be saving yourself a ton of money!
Sugar scrubs are a fantastic way to rid your body of dead skin cells, boost collagen production beneath the skin, clear out build up in your pores, and reduce overall acne and inflammation. Not only can you use it on your face, but you can use it all over your body.
In our DIY Sugar Scrub we make it with coconut oil, brown sugar, honey, and our favorite essential oils.
The first ingredient is coconut oil. We’ve talked about the benefits of coconut oil in the past, but it can be especially great for your skin. It’s antibacterial and antiseptic properties can help keep your skin clean and clear. The second ingredient in the Sugar Scrub is, unsurprisingly, sugar! Sugar is healthy for your skin when applied directly to it. Sugar is terrible for your skin when it is eaten. In other words, sugar is good for your skin, terrible for your gut. To double down on the sweet, this Sugar Scrub also contains honey. Honey is a natural healer, great for acne and rashes. It also helps to lock moisture into your skin.
The final ingredients in this DIY Sugar Scrub are up to you. We use essential oils in our Sugar Scrubs to address a variety of different symptoms. You can add whatever essential oils you wish to treat your specific skin conditions. Some great options include tea tree oil, wild orange, lavender, and frankincense.
After you make the scrub, it should safely last one or two months (if you don’t use it all first!)
Remember, minimizing the toxins and chemicals that you are exposed to on a daily basis is a surefire way to improve your overall health. So in the future, try cutting out the chemicals and enjoy fantastic skin health by creating your own skincare products!
