Brown Sugar Pamper Hand Scrub

I made a quick and easy sugar scrub for my poor chapped hands tonight. Winter doesn’t do skin any favours. This is something you can do in an ad break, while the coffee is brewing, or as the wine chills. The reasons for making it are:

  • cheap
  • fast
  • you know what’s in it
  • no stupid packaging
  • makes great pressies for friends

In a bowl, put:

  • about 1.5 cups of brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup of olive or canola oil (or whatever cooking oil you’ve got available)
  • juice and grated zest of one lemon
  • a few drops of essential oil. I like peppermint oil for this, but you could use whatever is in your cupboard. If you don’t have any oil, it’s no big deal.

Mix it all up and put it in a jar. You can see that the quantities are pretty informal. When you use it on your hands, take the time to massage your skin with it. It feels amazing. I then rinse and wash it off with my homemade soap.
