It goes best for the super soft glowing skin. This DIY homemade body exfoliator recipe has been personally tried and tested with excellent results. So without wasting any more time let's start with the ingredient list of this homemade body scrub recipe.


Homemade Whitening Body Scrub Ingredients:

  • Sugar - White or Brown - 1 big cup. Prefer using organic brown sugar if you have delicate, sensitive skin.
  • Milk Powder - 2 Tbsp.
  • Olive/Coconut/Almond Oil - half cup.
  • Use any suitable oil as per your skin type, best if extra virgin olive oil since it's super moisturizing and Nourishing. People with acne prone oily skin can use extra virgin coconut oil.
  • Honey - Organic pure honey  - half cup.
  • Strawberry Essence  - just 8-10 drops.
  • Coloring Red - Red, Pink or any of your choice - 2-3 drop. Using more drop could stain your skin, so limit it to 2-3 drops max.
  • Ingredients for Extra Skin Lightening (skip if you have sensitive skin).

The method of making this sugar face and body scrub is super straightforward and quick. Few ingredients, few simple steps and you are got to go. So let's start.

  1. Grind sugar in a blender so it's slightly granulated. It is no need of using sugar as whole because it might be little harsh for sensitive skin. Just slightly blend sugar to medium size and not into fine powder because we want its little rough texture for that gentle exfoliation.  The medium thickness granules are just perfect for that everyday gentle exfoliation.
  2. Mix sugar, milk powder and oil blending well to form a smooth paste.
  3. Add honey and the essence of your choice and mix well.

  4. Now add lemon juice and baking soda (skip if sensitive skin), and mix well.
  5. In the end, add your favorite coloring agent to add a nice colorful look to your DIY Homemade Sugar Scrub for Face & Body. I like using red and pink colors; you can use any like green, blue if you want to have the cool refreshing look. That's it now you have your own Homemade Scrub.
  6. Now just pour this in any glass jar and viola you are done.
