I absolutely love cucumber and I find it amazing that I can include it in my beauty routine as it offers so many great benefits for your skin. Here is an easy Cucumber Sugar Scrub that you can make yourself.
This feels like such a summer sugar scrub to me, and even though summer is almost over here in South Africa, I know for a lot of my readers it will start soon, so I decided to share this recipe with all of you today.
The key ingredient of this sugar scrub is cucumber, which has some amazing benefits for your skin. Cucumber is really great as it helps to soothe your skin, reduce redness, swelling and gives you a glowing complexion!
2 Teaspoons crushed cucumber
8 Teaspoons sugar
2 Pinches olive oil
Combine all the dry ingredients
Add in the olive oil, crushed cucumber and use a fork to mix
Put scrub into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
*This mixture makes enough for 3-4 uses. I prefer to make smaller quantities to use at a time. If you want more of the scrub, simply adjust the quantities of the ingredients accordingly.
* Add sugar to the scrub until the consistency is to your satisfaction.
* For a pinch I use my pinch measuring spoon
* I blend the cucumber with a hand blender
* This is more of a watery scrub
So why not try this refreshing natural scrub for yourself? I would really love to hear if you tried it and what you thought, so please leave me a comment below!
