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,
