I love a great homemade sugar scrub recipe, and this Satsuma and honey body scrub offers a thick and lush scrub is just what you need to brighten and polish dull winter skin.
Satsuma and honey sugar scrub
Satsumas are one of my favorite citrus fruits, sweet, seedless with a burst of freshness! They are named after a Japanese province, even though they originally came from China.
This DIY sugar scrub will keep for a few days at room temperature, or you can store in a sealed container in the refrigerator between uses. The coconut oil will harden when cold, so you’ll want to take some out of the jar to let it come to room temp or let it warm in your hands before applying it to your skin. This is a great homemade sugar scrub to use before shaving your legs to buff of dull, dry skin.
TIP: Apply this homemade sugar scrub before, or while in the bath. The richness of the coconut oil will help moisturize your skin. The raw honey is soothing and the Satsuma essence is lifting and happy. How can you go wrong?
Please note, this Satsuma and honey sugar scrub recipe is a bit on the oily side, so be careful on wet, slippery surfaces.
Sugar scrubs are a fantastic way to combat dry skin during the winter months, and to bring fresh skin to the surface all year long. Using a great moisturizing sugar scrub in the shower
