Supplies Needed To Make DIY Sugar Scrub

I told you this was easy, didn’t I?

How to Make Easy Lemongrass Sugar Scrub

It’s really all about mixing and stirring. Doesn’t get much better than that, right?

Make certain to stir and get it all mixed well as it will start to get harder to stir the more that you stir. You’ll also want to stir to get the green coloring evenly mixed with all the other ingredients, too.

How To Store Homemade Sugar Scrub

The good news is that storage is simple! Once you have it mixed, just store it in an airtight container for up to 6 months. You shouldn’t have to keep it in the fridge or anything like that, which makes it super nice to have in your bathroom to use for washing your hands quickly and easily.

I like to store it in a cute little jar with a lid so that it keeps it as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Keeping the air out when you’re not using it is key to it staying nice and fresh.

How to Use Sugar Scrub

I use this for taking care of my hands and sometimes my feet during the winter months, It’s also gentle enough to use on your body, too. But since this doesn’t make a huge batch, I tend to keep it for smaller areas so it lasts longer.

Just run on gently and exfoliate the skin, then rinse off with warm water. That’s really all you have to do.

If you notice that your skin is starting to look irritated, you might need to give it a break for a few days and see if that helps. This is highly unlikely but something worth mentioning and watching, just in case.

Have fun making up this simple DIY Sugar Scrub recipe! It’s fast, simple, and has an amazing smell! Put it in your bathroom as a reminder to take care of your skin or give it as a fun gift to your family and friends.
