How to Make a Vanilla Sugar Scrub

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup oil (almond [6], olive or coconut [7] work best)
1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil [8]
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract [9]

  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. You can add more or less oil to your liking.
  2. Store in an airtight container. Since this recipe doesn’t contain any preservatives, it’s best if it’s used within a month or two.

What Sugar to Use in a Sugar Scrub

Great question! Because it’s a little finer, so less abrasive, I use white sugar for facial or lip scrubs. Brown sugar, which is a bit more coarse, is best for body scrubs. Raw sugar, which is the coarsest sugar, is nice to use for hand and foot scrubs.

How to Use Your DIY Sugar Scrub

If you’re short on time, massage the scrub all over your body and rinse during your normal shower routine.

SAFETY NOTE: Be careful while using your sugar scrubs on your feet while in the shower. The oils contained in scrubs can make your feet slippery.

How Often Should You Use a Sugar Scrub?

If your skin is healthy and firm, you can use a sugar scrub a couple of times a week. However, if you have sensitive or thin skin, limit a good buffing to once a week. If you have any concerns, you can test an area of your skin before you use it on the rest of your body.  

NOTE: Due to the fact they don’t have any preservatives, sugar scrubs usually keep a month or two in an airtight container.
