How to DIY Your Own Body Scrub and Exfoliant

There is no better way to remove dead skin cells and get clean skin left behind than a face scrubber or body exfoliant. It’s just abrasive enough to do the work but not so sharp that it damages the skin or poses a risk to your skincare.

Whether it’s a sugar scrub or coffee scrub, most types of body scrubs and exfoliants will get it done. That said, you may not want to run out and buy a body scrub. Maybe you want to make your own. There are lots of DIY recipes for body scrubs and body exfoliators. Here are a few favorites of ours that we think are most effective.

DIY Recipes

For a brown sugar and honey body scrub, mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil. The coconut oil is imperative as it helps to loosen the mix.

For a sea salt and oil body scrub, combine 1/2 cup of sea salt with 1/2 cup of an oil of your choosing. Like with these other recipes, if your DIY body scrub isn’t to the consistency you like, blending in more of a certain ingredient can help to reformat what you’re putting together, achieving the type of body scrub you want.

For a sugar and olive oil body scrub, mix together 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of olive oil. This is a very basic body scrub that is a great starting point if you’re looking for a simple body exfoliator recipe.

For a coffee and coconut body scrub, mix together 1/2 cup of coffee grounds with 1 tablespoon of warm coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of hot water. If you’re a big coffee fan, you will be absolutely blown away by how good this feels over the skin.

These DIY recipes work the same as any commercially-available product. It’s just a bit of work putting them together. For anyone on a budget or with limited funds, trying a DIY body scrub recipe can be a fun experiment. If you don’t like how it feels though, it’s very easy to buy an exfoliant online through skincare sites like Lierre.
