It’s been a harsh winter, and I must admit that my skin has come out of it looking a little worse for wear. I do have a few fallback products that I tend to reach for year after year to help revitalize my skin after the winter, but with my new year’s resolution to try and make the switch from store-bought to homemade, I thought I should try and do something a little different.
I have a love-hate relationship with scrubs in general. Yes, they can help to get rid of dry areas and leave you looking luxuriously smooth. But, if you’re not careful with which ones you use and how often you use them, they can also be incredibly harsh on your delicate skin.
The beauty of making your DIY sugar scrubs is that you have not only more control over the coarseness of the product, but also the scent. Whether you’re settling down for a full evening of pampering or just having a quick scrub in your morning shower, you’re bound to fall in love with one of these recipes.

1. Chocolate Coconut Sugar Scrub
My mom always laughs at me when I buy products that smell like something you’d want to eat, questioning why I would want to smell like food. Well, I love food, so food scents are something that appeals to me most.
I don’t think that even my mom would object to using this Chocolate Coconut Sugar Scrub, even if it did leave her smelling like a chocolate bar. Something I like about this homemade scrub is the consistency of it. I find it incredibly annoying when a scrub is so dry that it crumbles and falls everywhere, wasting half of the tub, so I think that this liquid like texture would be far more effective and efficient.
