Why we love this recipe

What’s not to love about this recipe? It’s simply delightful. Sugar, the main exfoliating agent, helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin.

Exfoliation is essential in any skincare routine, and sugar scrubs are an excellent way to achieve smooth and radiant skin. Here are a few other reasons why we love this scrub:

  • With this scrub, you can help remove dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface of your skin, causing it to look dull and flaky. This scrub will help to improve your skin’s texture.
  • It smoothes out rough patches, softens the skin, and promotes a more even skin tone.
  • Stimulates blood circulation: The massaging action of using a sugar scrub helps stimulate blood circulation, which can promote a healthy-looking complexion. Improved blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to the skin, giving it a natural radiance.
  • It provides moisturization and nourishment to the skin.
  • It smells amazing! The essential oils are incorporated for added fragrance. Essential oils not only add a pleasant aroma to your scrub, but they also offer various skin benefits.

How to Use this Olive Oil Sugar Scrub

It’s super easy to use this olive oil sugar scrub. To use, simply take a small amount and gently massage it onto damp skin in circular motions.

Pay attention to those spots that crave extra TLC, like elbows, knees, and heels. Once you’ve scrubbed away, rinse it off with warm water and pat your skin dry. You’ll immediately notice how soft and smooth your skin feels!

Use your sugar scrub once or twice a week, depending on your skin’s needs. Over-exfoliating can cause irritation, so finding a balance that works for you is important. Avoid using sugar scrubs on broken or irritated skin, as the scrubbing action can further aggravate the area.

Tips for storing the sugar scrub

Store your sugar scrub in a clean, airtight container to prevent moisture from getting in. This will help extend its shelf life and maintain its quality. I love using a small mason jar to keep it airtight.

Keep your sugar scrub away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Heat and light can degrade the ingredients and reduce their effectiveness.
