Green Tea Sugar Scrub
It’s summer time and that means we’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors. Our skin is exposed to so many harmful UV rays on a daily basis and it’s up to us to care for our delicate skin. One of the best ways to care for your skin is by using a sugar scrub to rid off dead cells and make your skin glow all day long. Sugar scrubs can get very expensive. Today I’m going to show you how to make your very own Homemade Green Tea Sugar Scrub that can be used on a daily basis. My sugar scrubs are easy on the skin but effective enough to remove dead skin cells. With a combination of ingredients I’m sure you already have in the pantry you’ll be on your way to making Homemade sugar scrub in a matter of minutes.
What you need:
- 2 Cups of Granulated Sugar
- ¼ Cup Refined Spectrum Coconut Oil
- 2 Green Tea K-Cups or about 6 Tbsp. (You can use any green tea you have on hand)
- Small mixing Bowl
- Airtight Storage Container
Grab your small mixing bowl and pour in your sugar and your green tea and stir it up until it’s all mixed together. Once you have an even mixture pour in your coconut oil slowly and start stirring. You want to stir the sugar scrub mixture until all of the sugar and tea is coated in the coconut oil and you have a sugar scrub look. Once you’re happy with the mix and the consistency spoon your Homemade Sugar Scrub into your air tight container and apply the lid.
When you’re ready to use your sugar scrub, just get your skin damp and grab a handful and scrub it onto your body. A little goes a long way and you’re going to love the smell of the green tea, yum! After your have applied the sugar scrub just rinse off with warm water and pat skin dry. This Homemade Green Tea Sugar Scrub will last for up to 6 months in your airtight container.
