10 DIY Body Scrubs to Make You Glow
These simple and affordable scrubs will make your skin feel amazing.
Strawberry & Coconut
Berries are often used in DIY body scrubs for their helpful antioxidants and vitamins. This all-natural recipe calls for coconut oil and sugar. Afterwards, we can guarantee that you’ll smell delicious.
Blueberry & Lemon
Similarly, this blueberry and lemon scrub is refreshing with a delightful scent. If you plan on using it right away, you can use fresh berries (refrigerate immediately), but otherwise use freeze-dried ones ground into a powder.
Lemon & Coconut
Nothing will get you in the mood for self-tanner quite like a body scrub that smells like a tropical cocktail. Using a body scrub before you apply your self-tanner creates a more even application.
Pineapple & Black Lava Sea Salt
Need something powerful for dry heels and elbows? Don’t let the sweet scent of this scrub fool you. It’s actually a powerhouse in disguise. Remember to moisturize with a balm or lotion afterwards.
Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
DIY body scrubs also make fabulous bridesmaid gifts or favors for a bridal shower. This pretty pink scrub uses a variety of essential oils to create a warm, floral fragrance. Feel free to substitute your favorites.
Brown Sugar & Vanilla
Rough day? After an exhausting day at the office followed by a workout at the gym, your weary self could probably use a relaxing bath. Pair a gentle sugar scrub like this one with an epsom salt bath soak. With baby-soft skin, you’ll feel like a million bucks afterwards.
Chocolate & Hazelnut
Fan of Nutella? This DIY body scrub smells rich and decadent. To get your feet into strappy heel-worthy shape, use this coconut oil-based scrub before pedicures.
Brown Sugar & Vanilla
This delicious-smelling body scrub isn’t going to help any cookie dough cravings. But it is perfect for brides with more sensitive skin. It’s whipped, sugary texture won’t be as coarse as a salt scrub.
Cucumber & Basil
If you are a bride that prefers to avoid sweet scents, try a more herbal blend with cucumbers and basil. Use it directly from the refrigerator to maximize its cool, refreshing effects.
Add a lip treatment to your body scrub routine with one of these simple recipes. And the idea of storing travel-sized amounts of scrub and balm (whether for lips or body) in a contact lens container is absolutely brilliant.
