Ice Cream Inspired Body Scrub

Do you have a sweet tooth? These 3 DIY body scrubs will make your skin look and feel delicious.

Each recipe starts with a sugar base. I used cane sugar and light brown sugar for mine.

Strawberry Sugar Scrub:

  • 1/2 cup blended strawberries
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup grapeseed oil

The addition of pureed strawberries gives a natural anti-inflammatory, and antioxidants properties that treat burns, protect your skin from UV rays, and delay ageing. Strawberries are packed with alpha-hydroxy acid that can help you get rid of dead skin cells.

Vanilla Sugar Scrub:

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Sugar Scrub:

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup light brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup grapeseed oil

Cocoa is also good for the skin. These properties help to soften, clear, and detoxify your skin. Raw cocoa powder can also increase the elasticity of your skin, which helps with fine lines, wrinkles and reduces the appearance of scars.

Over all, Body Scrub has many benefits like,

  • Promoting efficient circulation and skin cell turnover.
  • Removing dead cells from the skin's surface.
  • Smoothing and softening rough, dry skin.
  • Drawing out impurities and clearing congestion.
  • Freeing ingrown hairs and smoothing razor bumps.

Store these in air tight jars for up to a week (because there is natural ingredients in the strawberry).

*As always, before using new products on your body be sure you don't have an allergies to the products. Patch test before using. (:
