Bionic Homemade: Super Soft Sugar Scrub for Body and Feet

by JoyceyCouture on August 2, 2010 · 5 comments

Welcome to another installment of Bionic Beauty Homemade with Joycey Couture!

It’s Summertime – shorts and sandals are a must! Treat your body and feet to a homemade scrub with this simple recipe.

The Ingredients… which you probably already have around the house!

  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil, or any lotion, cream, or body butter
  • Optional: Add 2-3 drops of Tea Tree Oil to reduce inflammation, clear eczema, enhance moisture retention, and to soothe and clear the skin

Bionic Beauty's homemade DIY Sugar Scrub for feet

Mix It Up and Use It Up…

  • Mix the sugar and lotion/oil/cream in a bowl.
  • Use the scrub in the shower, or after. Just be very careful while in the shower or on smooth floors since the oil/lotion/cream can make your feet VERY slippery!!!
  • For your feet: Encourage exfoliation by rubbing the mixture into each foot for a few minutes. Continue to massage your feet for a few minutes longer to break up tension and soreness.
  • For your body: Apply the scrub first on your extremities – hands, feet – and work towards the core of your body – up the legs and arms.  Scrubbing towards your heart and core is thought to help increase circulation and assist the body in clearing toxins.
  • Rinse with warm water, PAT dry, and you are done!

Stay Bionic,

Perfect Robyn! Let me and Joyce know how it works for you and if you add anything else to make your “recipe” different. I add some different oils each time depending on my mood. :)

The first batch I made, I did the above as directed. I used by Olay of Olay Body Quench. The smell of this lotion is soooooo clean, I mean you do not need to mix a scent when using this lotion. I can never keep enough at the house both men and women use on face, legs, feet etc.
Of course it goes fast. ~Trust me you like clean smell do this. It came out perfect and no need to buy anymore. Go to any drugstore and buy plastic jars with tight lid. ~~Your done! ~~(of course to make a good amount increase your units and store.) Tell Joyce thanks for me.

When making a batch that you want to add oils, the best thing to do
is find one that really does not have a scent to it. After rummaging through by stash of lotions and potions, I found one, and added
“Rose Oil”. Ahhhhhhhhhh…. I smelt like a rose garden. Needless to say you can spread this from the foot and do your legs also. Really nice,
again “Thanks Joyce”. I am going to try every oil there is now !!!! Since I live in Hawaii we are always wearing rubber slippers, so it wears on your feet. Pedi’s are a must in paradise.
