Sugar scrubs are a treat for the skin, polishing away dead skin cells without the drying effects of a salt scrub. Widely available at most department, health and beauty stores and pharmacies, prepared sugar scrubs can be quite expensive. If you love the skin benefits of a sugar scrub, but find the cost a bit prohibitive, try this wonderful peppermint scrub that takes only two ingredients and mere minutes to whip up.

Things You'll Need

  • Small plastic bowl with lid
  • Spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap

Making the Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Measure one cup of granulated sugar, into a small plastic bowl.

Add one-fourth cup of Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap to the sugar.

Stir well with a spoon.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can use a reusable, resealable bowl or a re-purposed butter tub.
  • Scoop the sugar scrub into your hands, and begin massaging the skin, working up a good lather. Pay particular attention to rough spots like elbows, knees and heels. Rinse away thoroughly to reveal softer, smoother skin.
  • Sugar scrub may be used two times per week. Any left over sugar scrub can be saved. Simply place the lid on the container and store in a cool, dry place.
  • Apply moisturizer to seal the skin, after using the scrub, to keep it from drying out.
