The world's easiest DIY body scrub - just 2 ingredients!

Hi again!

We've all looked at those Pinterest sugar scrubs and then spent a good half an hour pouring oils and flavours and colours into a big jar and mix mix mixing. But here is a DIY to take ALL the work out of it, finished in about 88 seconds and scented with something other than lemons and mint leaves that won't leave your walls covered in chunks of oily sugar!

All you need is sugar and shower gel.

That's it!

If you've got a delicious shower gel you love (have you tried Dolly's mixtures yet?) why not use it as a body scrub too?

The type of sugar you use will depend on how thorough you want your scrub to be and how much mess you're willing to clean up afterwards! Bigger granules will fly around, smaller granules will stick to the shower gel and your skin.

big granules = better scrub, some mess
small granules = softer scrub, no mess 

If you looking for a really thorough scrub brown sugar is the one; big hard granules that will make layers of dead skin disappear. Personally I hate mess and am happy to just use a little bit more sugar so I choose caster sugar.

I make 1 application at a time, that way I can choose a different scent each time and it won't start stinking after being stuck on my shelf for 3 weeks!!

Take 4 teaspoons of sugar and drizzle in enough shower gel to make a thick paste, you don't want it too runny as your skin will already be wet and will water it down anyway.

I'm using caster sugar + Dolly's Mixture's shower gel in Pina Colada and it's divine!

The sugar dissolves so won't clog up your drains and it really is the easiest and cheapest way to get a delicious body scrub to leave your skin silky soft. Don't forget to moisturise afterwards!

Enjoy!
Ciao for now
