DIY: Honey and Brown Sugar Scrub

Fall is probably my favorite season. I get to layer some of my favorite pieces and accessories together to create killer outfits, I get to watch the leaves change colors, and don’t get me started on pumpkin spice.
However, the cooler temperatures can be a bit harsh to my skin and lips. As hard as I try, it seems like I can never escape dry hands and slight cracking of my lips. Simple lotions, creams and chapsticks won’t do, no matter how expensive or “dermatologist recommended” they may be.
I am determined not to become a victim to dry skin this fall, so I did my research and figured out exactly what I need to do: exfoliate!
Exfoliation is such a key part of skin care. It removes the dead skin cells and brings out the new ones, which leads to smoother feeling skin. Exfoliation can also unclog your pores (bye-bye, breakouts!), even out your skin tone, make you look younger and allow your moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into your skin.
With all that being said, I decided to do a little DIY project and make my own honey & brown sugar scrub. With a little help from Pinterest, I was able to go right into the cabinets at home to create a jar of yummy-smelling, skin-healing wonderfulness.
The sugar scrub only requires four ingredients, and seriously took less than 10 minutes to make! Want to make your own? Here’s the recipe:
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup olive oil
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. Honey

  • Mix all ingredients together in a jar or air-tight container
  • Apply to face, hands, lips or anywhere else on the body where needed

As always, remember to take of yourself both inwardly and outwardly! Happy fall!
