During summer citrus flavoured ones work well as the zing of the citrus feels cooling on the skin, but come winter time and I like ones with sweet honey scents, like this brown sugar, honey and almond oil scrub. Here's how you can make your own.
- Half a cup of soft brown sugar - brown sugar is gentler than white sugar so it's good even for sensitive skin.
- Two teaspoons of honey - honey is naturally high in antioxidants and helps skin retain moisture.
- Two teaspoons of essential oil - I used almond oil as it contains vitamin E and is super moisturising on dry skin, but you can use other oils too like olive, rosehip and walnut. I buy my oils from Priceline or other pharmacies and they're all fairly cheap, usually less than $10.
- Small jar or container - I used an empty Dolmio pesto sauce jar!
