9 Homemade Body Scrubs To Keep You Smooth All Summer

It has never been more crucial to exfoliate than now, when tanning season is at its peak. With one of these all-natural, homemade body scrubs, you can display your softest, most luscious skin. Instead of using store-bought products and rubbing harsh chemicals into your pores, try one of these recipes to enhance your golden glow.

1. Lime & Sea Salt Scrub

This lime and sea salt scrub will awaken your skin while leaving you smelling like a fresh mojito (virgin, of course). If you enjoy citrus foods, you will prepare this simple recipe on a weekly basis. Lime is an anti-aging substance that can lighten dark spots, and sea salt is loaded with minerals like calcium and magnesium that help with acne and blotchiness.

2. Sugar Scrub with Vanilla Latte

This one is for the people who love vanilla lattes; this freshly ground vanilla coffee scrub will energise you and make everyone around you crave a cup of joe. The combination of coconut oil and caffeine will keep your skin looking young and healthy.

3. Strawberry Coconut Body Scrub, which is all-natural

This all-natural strawberry coconut scrub will quickly leave you smelling like an island paradise. This anti-aging scrub is made of fresh dried strawberries and is loaded with antioxidants.

4. Sugar Scrub with Eucalyptus

All the nature girls here love the minty fresh scent of eucalyptus. It’s magical – antibiotic, deodorizing, great for achy joints, and most importantly, cooling for these hot, muggy days! Pick something calming.

5. Blueberry Lemon Body Scrub

This pretty blue scrub would make a great gift – it looks so picturesque in the container. And the freeze dried blueberries providing that lovely color are packed with nutritious ingredients to make your body look its most radiant.

6. Citrus Green Tea Body Scrub

A cool cup of iced green tea is always refreshing to slug down on a hot July day, and when your pores soak that in, they reap benefits like increased circulation and firmer skin, and neutralized free radicals. Who doesn’t need to tighten up a little?

7. Whipped Grapefruit Mint Sugar Scrub

While grapefruits are the pretty in pink perfect citrus fruit of the warmer months, the lovely blush hue from this scrub actually comes from beet juice (avoid the food coloring to stay all natural) and the whipped texture makes it so fluffy and yummy to apply. It has undertones of peppermint and looks like a summer morning – why not try it out?

8. Ultimate Skin Scrub with Frankincense Essential Oil

This calls itself the ultimate scrub, and it lives up to its name. Probably the most complex to whip up on this list, this one keeps skin radiant while it calms. Frankincense, Ylang Ylang, and lavender uplift the skin, while grape-seed oil tightens pores and stops skin from getting clogged, as well as aiding in skin regeneration. Check out the other powerhouse oils that make up this scrub.

9. Natural Vanilla & Pumpkin Spice Salt Scrub

Yeah, this is more of a Fall scent, but some people are really missing their pumpkin spice lattes out there! And the summer often flies by faster than we think, so soon enough, you’ll be whipping out this pumpkin pie scented scrub – in the meantime, you can try out other pie flavors
