Coffee, Lavender & Sugar Scrub

This is actually one of the homemade exfoliators that I use all of the time. The calming effects of lavender, the scrub of the coffee grounds and the sugar make this exfoliator one of the best out there! Seriously ladies, if you are looking for something to calm your blemish-filled skin, this is the homemade exfoliator for you!


Coffee, Lavender and Sugar Scrub is one of the many amazing homemade exfoliators that are available for those looking for an effective and affordable way to improve their skin. This exfoliator is made with calming lavender, scrubbing coffee grounds and sugar, making it a great choice for those with blemish-prone skin.

The coffee grounds in this exfoliator work to scrub away dirt, oil and other impurities from the skin while the sugar helps to gently exfoliate dead skin cells. The lavender helps to soothe redness and inflammation while providing a calming aroma. This combination of ingredients helps to create a powerful exfoliator that is both gentle and effective.

To use this exfoliator, simply wet your face and then rub the mixture onto your skin in a circular motion. Make sure to avoid the eye area as it can be too harsh for this delicate area. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. You can use this exfoliator up to three times a week for best results.

For an extra boost, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the mixture. This will help to further soothe and nourish your skin while providing a pleasant scent.


Sugar & Olive Oil

Sugar and olive oil create one of the most popular homemade exfoliators out there! All you do is take some sugar, add in some olive oil and you got yourself an incredible, skin-softening scrub. The combination of the oil and sugar makes a fantastic softening agent that also will scrub away all of those dead cells.


Sugar and olive oil make a great combination for a homemade exfoliator. The sugar helps to gently scrub away dead skin cells, while the olive oil provides a softening agent. This combination is gentle enough for all skin types, and can be used on both the face and body.

To make this exfoliator, start by mixing together one part sugar with two parts olive oil. You can use any type of sugar, such as white, brown or raw. The olive oil should be extra virgin, as this will provide the best results. Once the mixture is made, use it to gently scrub the skin in a circular motion. This will help to remove any dirt and impurities, as well as dead skin cells.

When using this exfoliator, it is important to be gentle and to not scrub too hard. This will help to prevent any irritation or redness. After scrubbing, rinse with warm water and pat the skin dry.

This exfoliator can be used up to twice a week for best results. It is also important to follow up with a moisturizer, as this will help to lock in the moisture and keep the skin hydrated.


Salt & Lemon

If you've been having a lot of problems with oily skin, don't worry, ladies! This is one of the homemade exfoliators that is made for oily skin! The lemon juice will wipe away all of that oil while the salt will scrub away everything else. Try it, ladies, it really works!


Strawberries & Honey

I actually am a huge, huge fan of strawberries as well as honey and this super sweet exfoliator is incredible! Not only does it soften up any rough skin that you have, but the strawberry seeds work wonders for clearing away any and all dead skin.


Strawberries are not only delicious to eat, but they also have amazing benefits for the skin. They are rich in vitamin C, which helps brighten and even out skin tone. The seeds of strawberries are also a great natural exfoliant, gently removing dead skin cells and revealing a smoother complexion. Honey, on the other hand, is known for its moisturizing and antibacterial properties, making it the perfect addition to an exfoliator. Together, strawberries and honey create a powerful combination that not only exfoliates but also nourishes and hydrates the skin. This homemade exfoliator is not only effective but also safe and gentle for all skin types.


Smashed Strawberries

If your skin is soft enough yet you are having some problems with oil, you definitely want to try this out! Just take some strawberries, smash them in a bowl and put them all over your face. Rub them in a bit and you'll notice just how quickly that oil is removed.


Epsom Salts & Water

Epsom salts are some of the purest salts in the world! They also feel great when you slip into a bath of them, right? Well ladies, if you're really looking to brush away those dead skin cells and truly reveal the softness of your skin, you've got to try just a little Epsom salts and water. It'll make all of the difference!


Mixing Epsom salts with just a splash of water creates a paste that can do wonders for your skin. Gently massage this blend onto your face in circular motions to slough off dead skin and improve circulation. The magnesium in the salts can help reduce inflammation and may assist in flushing out toxins. For an extra touch of spa-like luxury, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Lavender or chamomile can turn this simple exfoliating routine into a calming, aromatherapeutic experience that leaves your skin glowing and your mind at ease. Remember, a little goes a long way—so pamper yourself wisely.


Honey & Sugar

Honey has so many different uses in the skin care world and I gotta say, mixing it with a little sugar makes a fantastic scrub! This scrub will not only soften up your skin, but it will make it glow and look radiant.


Brown Sugar

Brown sugar is another homemade exfoliator that is sure to soften up your skin quickly. Now, you can either use a brown sugar paste (brown sugar and water) or just straight brown sugar. Either form will work wonders!


Sweet & Sour Scrub

I mentioned a salt and lemon scrub earlier, but why not sweeten things up a bit with sugar? You can use this fragrant scrub on your face and body. You'll need 1/2 of a fresh lemon, 1/2 a cup of granulated sugar, a tablespoon of olive oil and organic honey. Mix those ingredients together and store it in a plastic container. You can add or subtract the amount of olive oil depending on what you prefer, also.


Coconut Oil & Sugar

This is another super easy, 2-ingredient scrub that works wonders on skin. Take a tablespoon of coconut oil and melt it in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Next, add 3 tablespoons of white sugar, combine and scrub!


Tomato & Sugar

I'm on a roll with the sugar scrubs so I figured why not keep going? Grab yourself a tomato and a tablespoon of sugar. All you need to do is slice the tomato in half and dip the fleshy side in the sugar. Next, use the sugar-dipped tomato to rub on your face in circular motions. Leave the sugar and tomato on your face for about 10 minutes and rinse off.


Honey & Oatmeal

A honey and oatmeal exfoliator sounds good enough to eat and works great on skin. Grab a 1/4 cup of oatmeal, a 1/4 cup water and 2 teaspoons of honey. Throw the oatmeal in a blender or coffee grinder to to grind it. Next, add the water and honey and scrub those dead skin cells away.


Pumpkin Pie Scrub

Speaking of eating, this is another exfoliating scrub that sounds tasty! For this exfoliator you'll need 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 a cup of coconut oil, 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil and 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spices (or just 1/2 tsp cinnamon). Mix it together and you're ready for pretty, polished skin.


Sea Salt & Baby Oil

This is another easy peasy homemade exfoliator that your skin will love. All you need is a cup of coarse sea salt and a half cup of baby oil. Mix it together in a bowl and keep it covered for 24 hours. Once the 24 hours is up, give it a good stir and apply.


Papaya & Oat Scrub

Papayas might not be in season right now, but this is a good recipe to file away for later. Papayas make a superb scrub ingredient because they contain enzymes which are natural exfoliators. If you've ever over scrubbed your skin with something harsh, try using papaya or pineapple to do it naturally. For this exfoliator you'll need a half of a papaya, two tablespoons of oatmeal and a tablespoon of almond oil. Blend the papaya and oatmeal separately, then add the remainder of the ingredients, mix and apply. It's best to use this as soon as you make it and not store it.

I actually think that making homemade exfoliators is so much fun and can be great for a spa night at home by yourself or with your girlfriends! Seriously, try all of these homemade exfoliators out and let me know how it goes! Ladies, what exfoliators do you use now?
