A sugar scrub can help get rid of the lips’ flaky skin, soften rough and dry skin on the body, and remove the dead skin cells on the face. People can do a DIY sugar scrub at home. In fact, you can make your own sugar scrub in about five minutes, using natural ingredients that you may have on hand in your kitchen.

Check out these DIY sugar scrub recipes for smooth skin:

  • Easy lavender scrub – Mixing lavender essential oil with a mildly fragrant sugar scrub will give you an ideal skincare product that your body will love. The sugar scrub can be prepared by mixing one and a half cups of brown sugar and one-fourth cup of almond oil. (You could substitute coconut, olive or grape seed oil if desired). Add eight drops of lavender essential oil for an intense fragrance.
  • Nourishing vanilla sugar scrub – This recipe carries the rich and soothing scent of vanilla. It will provide your face and lips with both nourishing and protective ingredients. Combine one cup of brown sugar, one-half teaspoon of vitamin E oil, a half teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, and half a cup of coconut oil.
  • Coffee sugar scrub – This scrub is rich in antioxidants because of the ground coffee and coconut oil. The coffee imparts a tantalizing aroma and can make your skin firmer while removing the dead skin cells. The scrub can be prepared by combining one cup of ground coffee, a half cup of coconut oil, one cup of brown sugar, a half tablespoon of cinnamon, and one tablespoon of pure vanilla extract.
  • Lemon and honey sugar scrub – This scrub is easy to make and has a fresh scent. The scrub should not be used on the lips because of the presence of lemon essential oil, which could prove too pungent. To make this scrub, mix one cup of cane sugar, a quarter cup of olive oil, two tablespoons of raw honey, 15 drops of lemon essential oil, and 15 drops of lavender essential oil.

Another way to get beautiful and young looking facial skin is through the use of Erase Repair HA. This product is often referred to as a “fountain of youth in a jar” because it supports the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
