I’ve had the most amazing scrubs in my years as a beauty editor. The very best spas tend to make their own scrubs using natural ingredients. You, too, can make a scrub that mimics theirs. This gorgeous honey sugar scrub takes only 3 ingredients and works like magic.
I love this body scrub because it contains ingredients I always have on hand in my home: honey, oil and sugar. Just whisk this up in a bowl and step into the shower.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Warm a jar of honey in the microwave for a few seconds until it becomes runny but not too hot to the touch.
2. Pour about 1/4 cup of the honey (eyeball it) into a bowl.
3. Stir in 2 tablespoons of your favorite oil. You can use coconut oil, sweet almond oil or even baby oil. In a pinch, you could even use olive oil, which is also great for the skin.
4. Add about a 1/2 cup of sugar. I prefer brown sugar, but a basic white sugar would work as well. Mix well.
Step in the shower and turn on the water. Get completely wet. Turn off the shower.
Place some of the mixture in your palms and massage in a circular motion all over legs, arms, belly, butt and chest (you can have your partner do your back). Don’t do this while the shower’s running or you’ll wash off the mixture before you get the full effect.
Rinse off in the shower.
