Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub

03 Apr 2019


This sugar scrub moisturises and provides a healthy glow when used regularly.  Brown sugar is also a source of B vitamins due to its molasses content, and combined with Vitamin E it is an antioxidant that can prevent and reverse signs of photoaging of your skin.

Sugar Scrub Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup almond oil
  • ½ t vitamin E oil
  • 1 t real vanilla extract
  • 1 airtight jar

What to do...

  • Mix ingredients together
  • Spoon into airtight jar
  • Use a spoon, popstick, or tiny spatula to spoon out mixture
  • Do not get water into the jar, because it could introduce bacteria
  • Use the sugar scrub about twice per week

When choosing a sugar to use in your scrub, consider the following:

  • Brown sugar is softer than granulated sugar, better for sensitive skin
  • Raw sugar is coarse, so usually for body use
  • Do a small patch test if you aren't sure how your skin will react
  • If your skin requires something a little gentler, grind the sugar finer (in a pessle or with a rolling pin)
