DIY Sugar Body Scrub

In Australia it is summer at the moment and that means a lot of people will be applying a self tan lotion and want a smooth base to create an even looking tan .The best way to achieve a smooth base for your tan is to exfoliate your skin first with a good body scrub to remove the layers of build up dead skin. Alternatively you can use a exfoliating glove where you can apply your body wash first and the glove turns it into an instant exfoliator, these are great for travelling and only cost a few dollars. If you have never tried exfoliating your skin I find these two ways cheap effective alternatives to buying a body scrub and I find works just as well.
Honey is a natural bacterial that nourishes the skin and olive oil is especially good for dry skin or sensitive skin and the sugar works as an exfoliate.
I have been using this natural homemade body scrub for years, it works so well and all you need is three ingredients to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. It is great to use in both summer and winter as the olive oil moisturisers dry skin.

For the Scrub: In a cup mix 3/4 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup of white sugar and 1 tablespoon of honey until all ingredients are combined. Once you get in the shower dampen you skin first then apply with your hands in a circular motion then rise off thoroughly.

Say Hello to smooth skin!
