Brown Sugar Body Scrub

A good body scrub can have you feeling better in no time flat. There are a number of homemade body scrub options that can really help you feel better and improve your health. In particular, a brown sugar body scrub is a great way to really improve your skin. 

Here are a few things to consider in general when it comes to natural body scrub recipes. 

Homemade Body Scrub Options 

Although sugar isn’t very good for eating, since it causes you to incur all sorts of health problems, it can actually be quite good for your skin. Sugar can be safely used in homemade body scrub recipes, if you care about exfoliating. In general, a DIY body scrub is a great way to save money. 

The basic recipe usually contains the following:  

* 2 parts of sugar, which can be either white sugar or brown sugar.

* 1 part oil, which can be almond oil, olive oil, or coconut oil.

* ½ teaspoon of Vitamin E oil or Vitamin E gel from a handful of capsules.

You can add various combinations of ingredients to change the nature of your own body exfoliator scrub. For example, I have a coffee body scrub recipe that comprises a cup of coffee grounds, 1 cup of coconut oil, a few drops of lemon essential oil, a few drops of orange essential oil and a half cup of coconut sugar instead of using the other types of sugar such as brown sugar. 

But, sugar is still great to use for exfoliating rubs, because it’s organic in nature and it will take care of the outer layer of your skin in a way that is soothing and not overly abrasive. 

This is also why sea salt body rubs work well. It is easy to learn how to make body scrub products and body exfoliator scrub products, just by looking online and then mildly altering the recipe, while following the same instructions. 

Overall, a good sugar body scrub or any other kind, can go a long way to helping you feel better and making your skin look great. The key is to experiment until you're using the scrub that you find the most comfortable out of all the different potential options.
