DIY Skin Scrubs You’ll Want to Try ASAP

It’s that time of year again. When your normally smooth skin turns positively reptilian, what are you to do? Fortunately, you can make an at-home face (or body) scrub to exfoliate and hydrate the skin using ingredients you probably have in your pantry at this very moment. These at-home skin remedies take minutes to make and leave your skin feeling utterly smooth and moisturized.

The hardest part of the whole process will be trying not to eat the delicious-smelling products before using them on your face or body. Once you see how easy it is to make these scrubs, you’ll begin giving them out as hostess gifts at every occasion, or even start your own Etsy shop.   


Strawberry “ice cream” body scrub

Fruit enzyme exfoliation is fantastic for cell-turnover in the skin. Try this strawberry scrub year round, but it will certainly be a hit during hot summer months.

Brown sugar plumping lip scrub

Because you deserve a good scrub from head-to-toe, especially during chapped-lip season.

Lemon and poppy seed scrub

Lemon juice and lemon oil are fantastic for any dark spots or hyperpigmentation on the skin. Try this skin-brightening formula that is always in season.  

Pumpkin and coconut scrub

You don’t have to wait until pumpkin spice season for this delectable scrub. It may not look like it from the picture, but this is basically a pumpkin spice body scrub.

Matcha, cucumber and mint mask

Green tea is great for the skin, inside and out. If you’re a matcha addict, why not try the good-for-you green powder as a topical anti-aging treatment as well as ingesting it?

Blueberry lemon body scrub

You may want to eat this while you’re making it, but try to resist for long enough to give your body and antioxidant-packed rubdown.
