The Beauty Locker: A store bought salt scrub and a DIY sugar scrub!

I love to exfoliate! It just makes my skin feel so clean and fresh. Today I want to share my two favorite scrubs, one you buy and one you can make at home.

imageMy favorite store-bought scrub is a Lavender Salt Scrub from Trader Joe’s. It’s only $5.99 and it’s better than high priced versions I have tried. I keep it in the shower and use it before I shave my legs. I feel like a get a really close shave if I exfoliate first. I also like to use it after a super sweaty workout. It makes me smell good. Stay tuned to the blog… I might be giving this container away to a follower!

imageSo, if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, or you want a great DIY scrub recipe, here is a great one. I found this recipe on Pinterest at Jillee’s One Good Thing blog. You only need two ingredients and a jar with a lid. Buy a bag of granulated sugar  and Dawn Ultra with Oil of Olay.  If you want the exact recipe, refer to the link above.  I’m not really a fan of measuring and preferring eye-balling things, so I usually wing it.

imageFirst, get a jar and fill it approximately 2/3 full with sugar.

imageThen, add the Dawn liquid soap and stir. Keep adding sugar and Dawn until you have the right consistency.

imageOnce you have the right mixture, make sure you put the lid on the jar. The sugar will harden and make it difficult to use if you don’t seal the jar. This scrub is great because the Dawn soap produces a great lather and your hands feel super smooth after each use. I keep my jar right next to my kitchen sink and try to use it at least once a day.

This sugar scrub makes a great gift or party favor. Smart and Final has cute plastic containers in their food section or you can pick up cute jars at the 99 Cent Store or Dollar Tree. Make a cute label for the jar or container with instructions for use and you are done.

Homework: What is your favorite exfoliation product?
