Sundays are for DIY skincare recipes, and today I’m coming at you with a DIY Vanilla sugar scrub.

This skin exfoliant was one of the first homemade skincare posts I published on this blog.

I only just started blogging when I wrote about it.

And because I was really broke, I didn’t even have ingredients to make it or take good pictures.

And as time went on, I started buying ingredients and made more DIY skincare products, but I never updated this post.

Let’s get started.

How to use your vanilla sugar scrub

As always, I encourage you to wash your skin before you exfoliate it.

And that’s because it is the best way to get maximum benefits from your scrub.

Plus, if your skin is dirty and you exfoliate – especially with an oily scrub – you would only be coating your clogged pores with oil.

If you don’t believe me, gently scratch your skin and look at the dirt collected in your fingernail.

So make sure to wash properly with or without exfoliating gloves before your scrub.

Steps to use the body scrub

  • Before you take a shower, scoop the amount of scrub you need into a small bowl you use in the bathroom.
  • So that you won’t have to use your wet fingers.
  • Also, the leftover scrub in the original container would be safe and preserved for your next use.
  • Next, apply this DIY vanilla sugar scrub all over your clean skin, and exfoliate gently.
  • Then rinse it off after several minutes, and dab the water off your skin or leave it to dry up on its own.
  • I would not apply moisturizers to my skin.
  • But you can if you want to – especially to your elbows, knees, and heels.
  • Put on your clothes, and go about your business as usual.
  • Make sure to wash the oil in your bathtub or shower to prevent slipping accidents.
