It happens to the best of us. We go through the time and effort to shave our legs, pits, and everywhere in-between, just to step out of the shower with still bumpy legs, or worse, the dreaded strawberry skin. I don’t know about you, but if I am going to use my precious energy on shaving, I want to step out of the shower with Instagram filter smooth skin. With this new homemade sugar scrub technique your skin will not only look better, but feel silky smooth, and it’s very likely that the things you need to do this, are already laying around your house.
What you need:
1 ¼ cups of sugar OR coarse salt (any salt or sugar will do, but the coarser the better)
½ cup oil (You can use coconut oil, olive oil, baby oil, any kind of oil you want.)
1 Lemon (OPTIONAL)
A few drops of your favorite essential oils (OPTIONAL)
What you do:
Saturate the area in question for a few. I recommend doing this at the end of your bath or shower.
Combine oil, sugar, and essential oils in a bowl. Mix well to create a body scrub.
Cut your lemon in half and dip into the scrub, if you are not using a lemon you can apply the scrub with your hands, or anything else.
Use circular motions to massage the scrub into your skin using your lemon, or your hands.
After your skin has been properly scrubbed to perfection, begin shaving as normal. I recommend shaving with the scrub still on, but you can rinse it off if you would like.
For even better results, Repeat as needed and top it off with your favorite lotion, or a little coconut oil after drying off.
VOILA! Super smooth and summer ready legs.
What does it do?
Body scrubs have taken over! This DIY sugar scrub exfoliates and hydrates your skin, removing any dry, or dead skin before you shave. The results are the softest, smoothest legs you have ever had. This recipe is perfectly safe to use anywhere on your body. This technique is perfect for men too! No more scratchy faces.
The first time that I personally used this technique I was absolutely blown away by the results. Get a little jar and bring your scrub with you when you travel. Switch it up and try using different types of oils, scents, and ratios to create a custom scrub that is perfect for you. You will never have to deal with prickly, red, or dry legs again! Awesome right?
