DIY Sea Salt and Sugar Scrub

DIY sea salt & sugar Hand & body scrub - Easy to make & a must for the summer months to keep in the shower to remove rough & dry skin. Gives you the silkiest glowing skin ever!

It’s that time of year again where I want to use self tanner to look sun kissed all while playing it safe & staying out of the sun & the tanning beds. If you are a self tanner user {I’m loving the St. Tropez self tanner, what about you?} , you know that exfoliating before applying is the number one rule. I can never find a scrub that is exfoliating enough for my liking that is the price I want to pay so I started making my own DIY sea salt and sugar scrub & I happened to make a fresh batch this weekend so I wanted to share my recipe with you. It’s so easy to make, smells & feels amazing, it’s moisturizing, & husband approved too!

ok. So the thing about this hand & body scrub is that it’s not a specific scientific recipe. It’s completely preference. You can choose your ingredients by what your specific needs are.  I wanted my scrub to be a little more rough to remove the long hot summer days & the dead & dry skin so I decided to use sea salt, raw sugar, brown sugar, coconut oil, & for an extra bonus this time I added some Dawn with olay hand renewal cream. I used the lavender scent so the scrub has a calming aroma which makes it perfect to use in the shower after a long hot day. I made my scrub in a small mason jar, but you can use any container you wish. I simply mixed all the ingredients in the mason jar until I was happy with the texture. On this particular batch I chose to have it a little runnier with more of the Dawn/olay soap. If you choose to not use the soap & use the coconut oil {you can use olive oil too!} it will be less runny & more of a firm texture. I chose to use the soap not only for the scent, but also so it would be a great cleanser in the shower. You can add & subtract ingredients to fit your needs. I change up the recipe every time I make it & that’s the best part about this DIY scrub! This particular recipe gives you the smoothest silkiest glowing skin ever. Perfect for summer when we are showing more skin!

Keep a jar in the shower & by your sink & I guarantee you will become addicted to using it. The mason jars & tags are both from good old Target, but you can use what you have on hand. All of the other ingredients can be found at any grocery & you probably have most of them in your pantry already. Have you made a DIY scrub before? What did you use? I would love to hear your recipe & what works for you. I’m down for trying new DIY scrubs & I think if you start making them now, you will become addicted too.

  1. that looks great! I use sea salt with lemon zest and coconut oil, but the raw sugar sounds like a good add-in

  2. Sounds like a great body scrub…and I kind of want to eat it (minus the dawn, of course).

  3. Can wait to try this- I always seem to get really dry at the creases of my nose {ah, the joys of getting older} and am always looking for ways to rejuvenate my skin in those areas. Thanks for sharing. Happy exfoliating!

  4. They have these jars of cocoa butter cream for a couple bucks at Family Dollar and I love mixing it
    with sugar to use in the shower. It makes your skin incredibly soft! I’ve used coconut oil as well but it’s so expensive! I also like banana boat’s summer color for an instant glow. You have to apply it daily but it’s cheap and gives my pale skin a nice natural color :)

  5. Is there a certain amount of each item you use? Or do you just add until you think it’s good to go?

  6. You need to keep few things in mind before choosing the right summer camp.
    If they can only perform a partial motion of an exercise, that is acceptable and is
    still working the muscles. Are you still managing your camp using manual systems.
    I guess it’s possible for this to complete instantly if you’ve already killed Dead Sea
    while rescuing the captured and crucified NCR troopers.
    , and before- and after-care are offered for
    the older age group, as well as at Hyde Park for preschoolers.
    In groups, students will get to know the dolls and act out their own stories for
    the rest of the class. Learning about video game is not limited for computer techies only, it is for
    all kids and teenagers who have a creative mind and
    enjoy playing the games. If you take all these
    factors into consideration, you will be able to have a generator that works more smoothly
    and efficiently. Many parents consider teen camps when they get mad at their teens for disobeying
    them or getting into trouble. Ask for a photocopy of any policies that the camp has in result,
    and be sure and keep that copy safe to refer back to.

  7. Lawat leaf extracts are traditionally used in preventing hair loss, promoting hair growth and
    releaving itchiness and skin inflammation. Zinc absorption and vitamin C intake could be
    synergistic. The Hair Transplant Network gives
    an estimate of $4 to $8 per graft for a FUT procedure and $6 to
    $10 per graft for a FUE procedure.
