How to make a Solid Sugar Scrub, and creamy sugar scubs with Recipes

 Sugar Scrub Skin Benefits and recipes

Sugar scrubs naturally exfoliate the skin. They remove dead, dull skin cells, revealing
new skin cells, giving you that natural healthy glow.  Once exfoliated, your skin can now
more efficiently absorb moisture allowing it to penetrate deeper. Skin is rejuvenated,
soft and supple. 

Sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into your skin.
That's a good thing.  

Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that encourages cell turnover.
Which means healthy, younger looking skin for you! It cleanses the skin and will not clog pores.

I use brown sugar for a face scrub, it's not as course as white granulated sugar.
I like white sugar for a body scrub.  I do not recommend using turbinado (raw sugar) in a scrub
used on the face or sensitive skin, it's course composition can leave microscopic tears on the skin..   Test for yourself on a small area of skin if in doubt. You can make a solid scrub or a creamy scrub.

RECIPE 1:           Simple 2 ingredient recipe for 
                             SOLID SUGAR SCRUB


1)  3.5oz of unrefined cocoa butter. (if you use refined you lose the gorgeous scent & properties)
2)  2 1/4 Cups of white sugar

HOW to make:
Melt cocoa butter in microwave safe bowl or in double boiler.
Measure out your sugar (brown or white) in large bowl, pour melted butter over it and combine well.
Once combined, pack into your mold, I use the mini brownie mold sold at Hobby Lobby. This recipe will fill it one time. I toss an organic rose bud in the mold before filling for that pampering touch.


You can also use candy molds and small soap molds
 for your solid scrubs.
Don't want to make your scrubs yourself,
you can purchase them from me
in my shop, click HERE.



HOW TO USE: 
Wet skin with warm water and gently rub solid sugar scrub over skin in a circular motion. Can also be used as a lip scrub.  Rinse and pat dry.

Can be used as a bath melt:  Drop into warm bath water and allow to melt. 
Pick up scrub while in tub and gently rub over skin for a home spa treat!
