DIY Body Scrub: 4 Top Tips to Take from Good to Great!
There are plenty of effective body scrubs on the market that you can purchase for big bucks. But every once in awhile, it can be fun, beneficial, and inexpensive to follow the steps to make your own DIY body scrub. Of course, you want to make sure that it’s as effective as possible when you’re going with a homemade concoction. We spoke with the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics to help you make sure your DIY body scrub is as effective as it can possibly be.
#1 Add in Some Coffee
When picking the exfoliating ingredient for your DIY body scrub, coffee is always a strong choice. Natural coffee grounds just have the perfect exfoliating texture: Fine enough to treat the face right, yet coarse enough to give your body the aggressive rubdown that it needs. And the blend of antioxidants and caffeine provide a bounty of beneficial impacts for your skin. If you’re feeling lazy, let the experts do all the work and try: Callysse’s Buffing Coffee Scrub.
#2 Use the Right Oil
You’ll need a carrier oil to make your DIY body scrub just the right consistency. So it’s important to choose wisely when picking one. Coconut oil, almond oil and olive oil are all excellent choices with a nice scent, nice consistency and a variety of added beneficial effects for the skin.
#3 Make It Smell Nice
Though essential oils may not be an active ingredient in your DIY body scrub, the nice scent that they impart adds to the relaxation of the treatment. This alone provides added benefits on its own. Vanilla, lavender, mint, citrus and others are all excellent choices. Consider how they pair up with the other ingredients in your scrub.
#4 Be Aggressive
Finally, don’t be afraid to choose an exfoliating agent with a little more oomph to it. Particularly if it’s intended to be used on the body and not the face. Sea salt, coffee and white sugar are all excellent choices that will leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
