15 Delicious DIY Body Scrub Recipes for Your Smooth Skin Needs

beauty-legs-lotion-3146-e1534924825571.jpgWanna achieve smooth skin while smelling like a literal SNACK? No seriously, you can smell like a snickerdoodle cookie, a mimosa (for all my brunch loving queens), an apple pie or a vanilla pumpkin latte. Body scrubs are another skin care regimen that turned our world around for the better. Think of it as another mandatory step to add to your weekly skin care routine. Like once a week you’ll do a facial mask, body scrub better be added to that lineup. According to Huffington Post: “Scrubs should only be used two to three times a week, and rubbing in a circular motion is most effective as it helps to free ingrown hairs and is less abrasive than a back and forth movement.”

The benefits of body scrubs are so astounding and effective that you would think it would cost you a fortune to make with all kinds of fancy ingredients that you probably would have a hard time pronouncing. I have never been more happy to tell you that you’re WRONG. Body scrubs only contain very few affordable ingredients including sugar, honey, essential oils & more!

While those ingredients won’t be costing you practically anything, you do have to invest a little more in containers to put your body scrubs in. I highly suggest those mini mason jars, which can literally be found ANYWHERE. Alright skin care scientist, get ready to step into your lab and create these 15 delicious smelling body scrubs. It’s time to feed your addiction for smooth skin and DIY projects.
