Homemade beauty has become the latest craze. How can it not be when you achieve smooth, youthful looking skin by making sugar scrubs with ingredients you already have in your kitchen cabinet?

We picked out these 3 sugar scrub recipes for remarkably softer skin on your lips, hands, face and body.

Matcha Green Tea Sugar Scrub

Thanks to the antioxidants in matcha green tea, this scrub is a powerhouse for your skin. It also contains chlorophyll, a powerful detoxifier known to remove harmful toxins and damaging radicals. Matchs is great for wrinkle-prevention and decreases sebum production that causes acne.

1 ½ cup sugar

2 tsp. matcha powder

2 green tea bags

1 cup coconut oil

Honey and Brown Sugar Scrub

This scrub has antibacterial properties that help fight acne and moisturizes skin. Brown sugar is a natural exfoliator and humectant that absorbs moisture and deposits into your skin. It also protects your skin from harmful toxins.

1 cup brown sugar

¼ cup olive oil

1 tsp. raw honey

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Vanilla Rose Sugar Scrub

This heavenly rose-vanilla scrub leaves your skin feeling soft. Anti-aging, acne treatment, healthy skin promotion, anti-inflammatory, and naturally fragrant are just a handful of reasons why you should make this.

1 ½ cup sugar

¾ cup coconut oil

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

10 drops rose essential oil

¼ cup chopped roses

Making a Sugar Scrub

The basic method is simple. If one of the ingredients call for coconut oil, whip until creamy before adding additional ingredients. For other oils, combine with sugar, herbs, tea, flowers, and essential oils. Scoop the mix into a glass jar. The scrub should last for several months if kept in a cool, dark place.

A natural source of glycolic acid, sugar helps your body produce new skin cells and breaks down dead cells. Sugar scrubs can be used on your lips, face, or limbs. Be sure to test the scrub on a small area first (sensitive skin may have a reaction to the abrasive quality of sugar). Wait 24 hours before scrubbing large sections of your body.
