Hey Beauties. Tis that time of the year…when you could use some good ole exfoliation! 🙂
Today I wanted to share with you a quick tutorial on how to create your own simple peppermint lemon sugar scrub for way cheaper than the cost of expensive store bought skin moisturizing and exfoliating products. If you have never made a peppermint lemon sugar scrub before, you’re really in for a treat! If there is a scent that always makes me happy, it is a fresh lemon mint scent yummm. I LOVE to exfoliate, especially during the winter months as during this time I’m more prone to dry skin, and want to keep my skin super hydrated and supple. The sugar in this scrub gently exfoliates the skin, the cooling sensation of the peppermint oil helps to soothe itchiness, it nourishes dull skin and improves the texture of oily or greasy skin, and the coconut oil moisturizes. Plus, the lemon zest/peppermint combo is totally invigorating. It will definitely wake you up first thing in the morning. This DIY Peppermint Lemon & Sugar Body Scrub, is a method which can definitely be used year round.
So here is my awesome scrub recipe…
You will need:
- 1 1/2 cups granulated pure cane sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (can use olive oil or almond oil)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon 100% pure peppermint essential oil (optional)
Melt the coconut oil in a small bowl or in the microwave on medium for 15 to 20 seconds just so it becomes slightly melted.
Stir in sugar, mixing until the sugar is thoroughly coated. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and peppermint oil until all ingredients are combined. Transfer into a glass jar. Voila and there you have it, your very own Peppermint Lemon & Sugar Scrub. You can thank me later Happy Scrubbing 😉 !!
