Make an All Natural Body Scrub Exfoliate with Sugar vs Salt vs Oats ... and 1 more
Edited by Rebecca Kelsey Sampson, Doug Collins, Eng
Body scrubs are some of the easiest natural beauty products to make because the possibilities are endless. In this wiki, I will show you several different ways to exfoliate your skin naturally so that you can get baby soft skin.
Exfoliation is great for peeling away old layers of skin, leaving you softer, but is also good for maintaining an even tan, getting a deep clean, and for shaving prep.
All of the below methods are easy to follow and can be used to make a simple or elaborate scrub by just adding a few ingredients. Adding essential oils, for example, can make any scrub feel more luxurious or store bought.
General exfoliation tips:
- Body exfoliation can be messy, so I recommend doing so naked in the shower (with a hair catcher on the drain to catch debris if you have a shower that clogs easily) for easy cleanup.
- Only do scrubs once a week or your skin will feel raw from repeated use.
- If you have sensitive skin, test each scrub on a small area of your body first to check for possible irritants.
Method 1: Exfoliate with Sugar
Sugar is the perfect exfoliant because of its fine texture. It's so fine that it can also be used on the face.
