When my skin is dry and dull it usually means it needs some exfoliating. One of my favorite homemade body scrubs to make is my homemade blackberry sugar scrub. It is made with natural exfoliating and skin brightening ingredients and it is very easy to make.The natural exfoliating and skin brightening ingredients needed to make this nourishing blackberry sugar scrub are 1 cup of pureed blackberries, 3 cups of white sugar, ½ cup of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil. These ingredients can be found in your local grocery store and should be pure and organic for them to work properly when it comes to exfoliating and brightening up the skin.
The blackberries in this scrub contain powerful antioxidants and vitamin C in them to help nourish the dry dull skin. The sugar in the scrub helps exfoliate the skin while the oils help moisturize and soften up the skin so it does not become dried out.
The way to make the blackberry sugar scrub is by taking the pureed blackberries, sugar, olive oil and jojoba oil and placing them into a small mixing bowl. Then you can take a spoon and combined the ingredients together until they are all combined together to form a gritty oily pinkish purple scrub that smells just like sweet blackberries. After you can place the homemade blackberry sugar scrub into a jar or container and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. The homemade blackberry scrub will stay good for up to a day or two.
The best way to use the blackberry sugar scrub is by getting into the shower and soaking my body down with warm water for a good 5 minutes. After you can take a handful of the scrub and massage and rub it into your skin in circular motions from head to toe until your skin is well exfoliated. Once you have exfoliated your skin with the scrub you should rinse down with plenty of water, pat your skin dry and apply a moisturizing body cream to help soften, moisturize and protect the skin. After your skin will be soft and glowing instead of dry and dull.
I do hope those of you who make the blackberry sugar scrub have an easy time making it, and those of you who use it like what it does for your skin. I wish you all the best with keeping your skin bright and soft instead of dry and dull.
