DIY Sugar Scrub

We can all relate to the dry, flaky skin that the harsh winter months bring. And us  women are always determined to not let jack frost keep us from the silky smooth skin we all long for this time of year, so we resort to expensive scrubs or exfoliating spa treatments. Well let me tell ya a secret! I have the best sugar scrub recipe that is only 4 ingredients and costs UNDER $10! Yup you read that right ladies.

2 cups brown sugar

Step 3: Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. If you choose to do so add the coffee grounds at this point. Transfer the scrub into a cute container and BAM! You have a great DIY sugar scrub.

Keep this in the shower or bathroom for easy exfoliation and use it 1-2x a week for best results!  Also tie a ribbon around it and it makes for an easy and inexpensive present.

Happy Scrubbing 🙂
