Sugar Scrubs for Soft, Glowing Skin

Warm weather is here in the Sonoran Desert, we haven’t quite hit 100 yet but we know it’s coming… and with the warm weather it is time to dig out the shorts, tank tops and sandals.  Are you ready to show some skin?

One of the best ways to remove flaky, dry skin to uncover your fresh, glowing skin is with a sugar scrub.  Just a minute or two at the start of your shower to rub a fragrant mixture of oils and sugar into your skin gently exfoliates and leaves behind a silky, soft layer of highly conditioned skin.  Or, if you need a little extra punch to your scrub try a sea salt scrub, perfect for those stubborn heels and elbows.

You can easily make a basic sugar or salt scrub at home using ingredients your probably have on hand already.  All you need is some oil, sugar or salt, and fragrance (if desired).  Here is a recipe to get started with:

Basic Vanilla Sugar Scrub

2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp vanilla extract

Mix thoroughly and use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  This recipe should last for 1-2 uses.

Daisy G’s takes this basic scrub to a different level with our exclusive blend of oils, butters and special ingredients.  We use sunflower oil because although it is a light oil that rinses off without feeling too greasy it is highly conditioning with a high level of vitamins and nutrients for your skin.  We use shea butter for even deeper conditioning, and cocoa butter for both the antioxidants and for a thicker scrub.  We also add vegetable derived emolients and emulsifiers to keep the scrub from separating.  Finally, we understand that you will be using your scrub in the shower, so we add a skin safe preservative to keep you safe.  Our scrubs are paraben free, formaldehyde free, vegan and not tested on animals (our cat and dog politely declined our request to use them for testing).

Whether you make your own scrub or use one of Daisy G’s we know you will be happy with the results and ready to show off that glowing, silky soft skin!  Follow this link to shop for your favorite Daisy G
