Sugar Cane Body Scrub

Exfoliating your skin is essential for removing dead skin cells clogging the skin and exposing new skin cells beneath.  This will allow your skin to absorb moisturizing products more easily and will leave your skin looking fresh and glowing.  I love to use homemade sugar scrub in the shower at least once a week. Just fyi, it is best to exfoliate before shaving, rather than after shaving to prevent undue irritation to the skin.  Here is my recipe for homemade sugar cane scrub:


½ cup organic pure cane sugar

½ cup brown pure sugar

3 ½ Tbsp. jojoba oil


Mix the sugars together in the jojoba oil in a bowl and then place in an airtight lid for use in the shower, bath or by the sink.  This scrub can last up to six months in an airtight lid.  You also can add to it essential oils of your choosing, such as lavender, for fragrance and to act as a natural preservative.
