what is body scrub, how to it, and how to use body scrub

The human skin undergoes a set of biological changes throughout the course of life, because of physiological and external responses.

And both of these factors interchange with one overlapping the other during a person's lifetime, leading to the dysfunction of the skin's natural self-protection mechanism and repair capability.

And therefore, in order to stay healthy and beautiful as you age, this delicate sense organ (skin ) requires an effective and proper supportive care.

And one of such supportive care is the use of body scrub.

What Is Body Scrub

Body scrub is an exfoliating agent used in beauty care to reveal the natural look and beauty of skin by removing dead skin cells, eliminating free radicals, and fighting against micro-organisms such as fungi and bacteria.

The dead skin cells make skin appear somehow dull and lifeless. And with the use of right body scrub, the dead skin cells are removed naturally, which gives a new life and look to the dull and lifeless skin. And also, this allows other new skin cells to regenerate and your make your skin looks refreshed, silky, smooth, soft, and young-looking.

How To Make And Use Body Scrub On Your Skin

Below are procedures to make and use body scrub on your skin with home natural DIY body scrubs:

Examples of natural exfoliants for the face include:

  • baking soda
  • finely ground sugar
  • finely ground oatmeal

DIY recipes for facial scrubs Acne-friendly baking soda and honey scrub

This facial scrub recipe, with its anti-inflammatory and oil-reducing ingredients, is well suited to acne-prone skin.


2 tbsp. baking soda
2 tsp. honey
1 tbsp. aloe vera gel
1 tsp. finely ground sea salt
1/2 tsp. vitamin E oil
3 drops of tea tree oil


Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, and mix them together well.
After washing your face, apply the scrub mixture to your skin with clean fingers. Use light, circular motions with your fingertips to smooth the scrub all over your face. Think of the scrub as a delicate facial massage. Continue the gentle, circular motions for 1-2 minutes.

Allow the scrub to sit on your skin for an additional 2 minutes.
Rinse the scrub off your face with lukewarm water.

Apply an oil-free moisturizer — yes, even acne-prone skin can benefit from a light moisturizer — after rinsing.

Moisturizing sugar scrub

This facial sugar scrub uses oils that can nourish and moisturize your skin after you’ve washed the scrub away. It may be especially beneficial for dry skin.


1 cup finely ground white or brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut or jojoba oil


Combine the sugar and oil in a mixing bowl, and mix together until they’re well blended.
After washing your face and hands, apply the scrub mixture to your face. Use gentle, circular motions to smooth the scrub all over your face for 1-2 minutes.

If you are done, wash the scrub off your face with lukewarm water, and gently pat your skin dry.
Use a gentle moisturizer on your cleansed skin.

Because the skin on your body tends to be thicker and less delicate than the skin on your face, you can often use slightly coarser exfoliants.

Some popular natural exfoliants include:
•brown sugar
•coffee grounds
•coarsely ground sea salt

A word of caution: Hold off on using sea salt if you have a cut on your skin. The salt may irritate and burn an open wound.

DIY recipes for body scrubs Oatmeal body scrub

This oatmeal body scrub helps soften your skin thanks to the skin-soothing beta-glucan compound that’s naturally present in oatmeal.

This scrub is great to use in the shower or bath once the warm water has already softened your skin.

• 1/2 cup coconut oil or jojoba oil
• 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
• 1 tbsp. brown sugar
• 2 chamomile tea bags


Grind the oats in a food processor until the oats have a fine dust-like consistency, then pour into a mixing bowl.

Combine the other ingredients (empty the tea bags) with the ground oats, and mix until everything is well blended.

Apply the scrub all over your body using gentle circular motions, but be sure to avoid your face.

Once you’ve finished applying the scrub, rinse it off with lukewarm water.
Towel or air-dry your skin before applying a moisturizing body lotion or oil.

While in the shower or bath, apply the scrub to your body using gentle circular motions, but be sure to avoid your face.

Because your lips are more delicate than the skin on your body, you’ll want to use different ingredients than you would for a body scrub.

Examples of natural exfoliants include:

• finely ground sugar
• cinnamon
• finely ground coffee

Additionally, you’ll want to include some ultra-nourishing components to a lip scrub.

Examples include:

• olive oil
• vitamin E oil

You may additionally wish to feature a scented part to form the scrub additional appealing.

If you have any pimples or blisters on your lips, hold off on exfoliating until these are cleared up.
DIY recipes Vanilla coffee lip scrub

This vanilla coffee lip scrub combines nourishing moisturizers, like oil and honey, with exfoliating ingredients such as finely ground coffee and sugar.


• 1 tsp. finely ground coffee
• 1 tsp. coconut, olive, or jojoba oil
• 1/2 tsp. honey
• 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
• 1 tsp. finely ground white sugar


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and blend till thoroughly combined.
Apply the scrub to your lips with clean fingers, rubbing in circular motions for about 1 minute.

Gently rinse off the scrub with lukewarm water.
Apply a moisturizer, such as petroleum jelly or lip balm, after exfoliating.

Sugar lip scrub

This DIY lip scrub uses sugar as the main exfoliant, and combines honey and oil to nourish and soothe the skin on your lips.


• 2 tbsp. sugar
• 1 tbsp. olive oil
• 1/2 tsp. honey
• 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well blended.
Follow the same directions outlined above for the vanilla coffee scrub.

As with anything that’s applied to your skin, there’s always a risk that you may have an allergic reaction to one or more of the components. This is especially true for essential oils or exfoliants themselves.

It is recommended to do a patch test on a small area of your skin to ensure you don’t get red and itchy from an ingredient.

Be careful of any natural exfoliant that’s not ground well. If an exfoliant, like coarse sea salt, granulated sugar, coffee grinds, or oatmeal, has jagged edges it could scratch or damage your skin.
