I am a huge fan of DIY beauty for many reasons. Being able to create beauty products yourself is a big deal. I love knowing what is in the things I make and the affordability factor is amazing. I mean, I could definitely go out and buy a hand scrub for $20+ or I could create a DIY Hand Scrub with the stuff that is already hanging out in my kitchen for pennies on the dollar. I think that everyone has dish soap and sugar, so you could basically consider this a freebie.
So, the things you need for this DIY are:
Sugar – I used Tate + Lyle Organic Pure Cane Sugar. This is the white sugar and its chunkier than most other sugars out in stores, so it makes for a better exfoliation.
Dish soap – I am using the one with Vitamin E. It is a very moisturizing formula and I love anything that includes Vitamin E.
Container – If I am going to have something sitting on my kitchen sink I want it to be pretty so I am using a blue tinted Ball Mason jar!
You can make however much you want with this. For the picture here I used 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
To that sugar I added 1/2 a cup of dish soap. You may need to add more, so start with less always. Consistency is something you need to play with. It could turn out too runny so add more sugar. The grittiness is actually all up to you and your preference.
And there you have it ladies and gents. An easy, SUPER EASY, DIY Hand Scrub. You more than likely didn’t have to spend a dime to make this because you already had these ingredients sitting in your cupboards. IF you had to purchase these things you would spend about $5 but using not even a 1/10 of it. Also, because of the specific ingredients I used you will get exfoliation, cleansing AND moisturization.
I hope you love my DIY Hand Scrub recipe. DIY Beauty is fun. It is easy. It is affordable. Exfoliation and moisturization all wrapped into one 2-ingredient scrub.
