I love making my own body scrubs at home. They are so simple to make and they make the most amazing gifts!
This Peppermint Almond Sugar Body Scrub is perfect for the holiday season. You can make a whole batch then jar them up and hand them out as little gifts for the holidays. Add a candy cane or some chocolate and you have your self a nice little special touch.
The mix of the peppermint and almond to me are the perfect combo of scents. It’s like Christmas in your shower.
Why This Peppermint Almond Sugar Body Scrub Is Great For Your Skin
Using a sugar scrub is great for your skin. Its fine texture makes for a great exfoliator without clogging your pores. Sugar scrubs are my favorite for my sensitive skin. I never get irritated and a bonus I always have some on hand.
The peppermint oil is not only a favorite holiday scent but also great for your skin to help cool and soothe your sore muscles.
I love the smell of almond anything but it too has great benefits! Almond oil helps with clearing out your pores to help prevent future acne. It has a high amount of vitamin E which helps with fine lines and wrinkles = yes, please!
Coconut oil has been a beauty secret for a long time now. It is great for skin and hair due to its moisturizing benefits. I love using coconut oil on both my body and hair from time to time, it helps keep everything moisturized without it being too heavy.
