Healthy and beautiful skin can be one of the features that boost your confidence. When your skin looks fresh, it is natural that you feel good on the inside too. A healthy, glowing, and fresh skin may appear like a distant dream that can only be achieved by cosmetic surgery or regular visits to expensive salons, but that is not entirely true.
To make your skin look fresh and healthy, you should follow some healthy skin care home remedies. There are a lot of home remedies for skincare on the internet, but here I’ve extracted one solution for all the problems and that is to make your own magical sugar body scrub at home.

A sugar scrub blesses your skin with every essential ingredient:

If you feel that your skin wants any of the above advantages, then follow the steps to make your own smoothing sugar body scrub at home:
Ingredients You Need
Sugar scrub is a highly inexpensive remedy. However, all the ingredients used are natural and highly beneficial for the skin. What you need is:
- 1 cup of sugar
- ½ cup oil (olive, almond, or coconut oil)
- ½ teaspoon vitamin E oil (optional)
- 15 drops of lemon essential oil
How to Make
Take a bowl and add all the ingredients. Mix them well. Vitamin E oil is used as a preserving agent in case you want to store the scrub.
You can use any oil you want but olive oil, coconut oil, and almond oil work best.
Buy good quality lemon essential oil. You can use any essential oil but because this is a lemon sugar scrub, we are using lemon essential oil. It has a beautiful scent.
Store the scrub in an air-tight container and place it in a cool and dry place. Don’t expose it to high temperatures.
How to Use
Take a spoon of scrub in your hand. Apply it to the area where you want to use it on your body. Scrub gently in a circular motion. Scrubbing in a circular motion is more beneficial than back and forth motion. Keep scrubbing for 10 to 15 minutes and then let it sit for 3 to 4 minutes. Wash the area with lukewarm water and dry it with a clean towel. Use this scrub twice a week on your whole body and let it do its magic. This scrub is all you need for healthy skin.
