How To Make A Sugar Scrub
Pamper your skin, exfoliate and moisturise at the same with a sugar scrub. Make your own following this simple easy-to-follow steps in this video.
Today, I'm going to show how to make a sugar scrub. We're going to make a pink vanilla sugar scrub. Main ingredient is sugar.
This is just regular granulated sugar but you could use caster sugar or brown sugar instead. I'm going to weigh it into the bowl and I'm going to put in, around about 800 grams of sugar. It doesn't have to be exact; you can make this up as you go along.
Now, any oil will do. The oil is going to help moisturise. I've chosen coconut oil.
Most of the other oils are gold in colour which would have an effect on your final scrub, but the coconut oil is clear and I'm going to add, around about, 60 grams. And if I feel, by the time I finished, that's too greasy I could add more sugar to counteract that. I've some glycerine here.
I don't need much glycerine and I'm just going to put in, around about, 15 to 20 grams. I'll just give that a stir before we add the colour and the smell. And the oil has been absorbed into the sugar but I think I need a little bit more oil in there.
I like my scrub to be slightly more moisturising than that. So, if I just pop it back onto the scale, I think another 15 grams of oil will do the trick and it's quickly being absorbed into the sugar, but that's a much better consistency. But when you're making a scrub, you can change the consistency as you're making it.
Let's add our vanilla fragrance oil, first of all. I need to add, around about 4 grams which is most of this little bottle. I like the smell of vanilla so I want to put a fair amount in, but if you want to bring the amount down and only put in, 2 grams, that would be fine.
Sugar and vanilla - I feel like I ought to be eating it, not rubbing it on my body. I got pink mica here, which is a skin safe colour and if I add a lot I go very pink. So, I'm just going to add the tip of my teaspoon here.
Sprinkle it over my sugar and it's matching the bowl now. Make sure it's evenly distributed through the scrub. Now, that looks very tempting.
All I need to do now is to put it in its pot. We'll just pop it in the pot. Still looks edible, still smells edible.
I can't wait to be using this. But, for those of you who prefer an oilier scrub, you can add more oil. For those of you that don't want too much oil floating around on their sugar, I think proportions I've chosen here are perfect.
To use it, I would need to scoop some out into my hand and then rub over my body and then rinse it off as normal. One of my favourite products. And that's how you make a sugar scrub. .
