I’m not a fan of winter weather.
I need warmth and sunshine.
My body revolts. My skin feels rough and blah.
Which is why this is a good time of year to use a sugar scrub. Sugar scrubs help remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving your skin softer and smoother, without causing pain. They are great for those of us with sensitive skin that gets irritated by abrasive beauty products.
You apply a sugar scrub to wet skin, rubbing in a circular motion, and then rinse off.
I usually look at this type of body treatment as a little bit of pampering, like a mini spa at home. But while there are sugar scrubs you can buy, you can also make one pretty inexpensively.
This mandarin honey sugar scrub was a recipe sent to me by Halos and I’m sharing it as part of #HalosFun.
Super easy to mix up, stores in your fridge, and if you wanted to, you could put it in a pretty container and gift it. I kept mine for myself, so I just used what I had. It softens my skin and smells amazing!
Halos Honey Sugar Scrub
- 1 Halos mandarin
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Zest and juice the Halos mandarin.
- Combine the sugar, coconut oil, and honey with the zest and juice from the mandarin. I used a fork for this and it worked well to stir and sort of mash and combine. You can adjust the amounts of sugar and coconut oil to change the texture if you want, but these amounts were perfect for me!
- Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator between uses(it will keep for a few days at room temperature). Let it reach room temp before applying it to your skin.
I was sent some Halos goodies as part of #HalosFun but I’m sharing this only because I really liked the diy sugar scrub and wanted to pass it along to you.
