DIY Homemade Sugar Scrub

1 of 2

Here’s a great natural way to pamper your skin- a homemade sugar scrub. The combination of oil and sugar in this recipe exfoliates your skin, seals in moisture, reduces clogged pores, removes fine lines, and leaves your skin smooth and soft.

Regular exfoliation allows face masks and other nourishing creams to penetrate deeper into the skin. White sugar, in particular, is excellent for exfoliating delicate skin as it helps remove dead skin cells gently. Plus, being a humectant, it adsorbs moisture from the air to hydrate your skin.

An exfoliating scrub should also include a moisturizing ingredient to prevent skin irritation and dryness. Extra-virgin olive oil is used in this recipe.


In addition to moisturizing, it helps fade blemishes and improves skin texture. The antioxidants in this oil provide anti-aging benefits. Moreover, it is good for all skin types, including acne-prone skin.

Essential oils add a nice, soothing fragrance that promotes rejuvenation. Orange essential oil, for example, has a fresh citrus smell that calms your mind and relieves stress. In addition, it soothes dry, irritated, acne-prone skin; increases blood flow; and promotes collagen production for skin repair.

  1. I love this recipe!!! I used Lemon to begin with but I can’t wait to try the other stuff. I used it on my face once and it was awesome, just be gentle.

  2. I made this for my friend’s birthday yesterday and she loved it! i paired it with exfoliator gloves, a face washer and wrapped it up all nicely. Very cute hahahaha.

    1. I have always used extra virgin olive oil w/sugar..never have thought of essential oils..probably for smell…. works great on elbows and knees too..

  3. I’m also using this scrub on the rest of my body. I’m 48, but people told me numerous times that I look 34! This is excellent!

  4. Hi, I used salt and olive oil to scrub my skin. But now I will use sugar and olive oil. Thanks for the recipes. I will definitely give u a feedback on wether it worked or not. Thanks.

  5. All I use is fine sugar and a squeeze of lemon. I use that as a scrub on my face. It smells delicious!! Then, right before I’m ready to rinse, I sprinkle some baking soda into my hands and rub that on my face. It tingles and feels great! After you rinse your face it is as smooth as a babies bottom.
