DIY All Natural Lemon & Green Tea Body Scrub

My skin does not behave well when the weather changes. Especially when the weather becomes cooler (the weather in Delhi is changing and becoming cooler) , my skin becomes drier . It becomes dry and scratchy , so I have to give it some extra care to keep it calm and moisturized. Though I also use scrubs that I have purchased from different brands , but my love for DIY products would never die. I try to make my own bath and body products whenever I get time and have ingredients that I need available at my home.

I made this Lemon and Green Tea body Scrub last year to treat my dry skin during winters and it did work for my skin. It removes the flaky skin without ripping off moisture from my skin which is really helpful as my skin is extremely dry and scratchy during winters .
This time I made it quite early to keep my skin healthy from the beginning and I thought to share this recipe with you all. If you have dry/flaky body skin , this scrub will be useful for you !

INGREDIENTS

The scrub is SUPER easy to make with just four ingredients!!

1/2 Cup Sugar

Sugar acts as an exfoliator. Since I did not want huge grains of sugar. I blended it for just 2 seconds in a blender , so that it has a bit of powdery texture.

2 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil (You can also use Olive Oil)
Coconut oil is known to speed up wound healing, and be extremely effective in increasing hydration and reducing water loss in seriously dry skin. It makes skin feel nourished after shower.

10 Drops of Lemon Essential Oil
It nourishes skin deeply. You can substitute it for lemon juice but then use the scrub within two-three days.

1 Tablespoon Green Tea
Green Tea is known to improve skin complexion and fight aging signs . If you want you can skip this. I added it for extra nourishment.

PROCEDURE

Mix all the ingredients with powdered green tea and sugar. Store it in a jar container and you are done. Use it once a week during cold weather.

After scrubbing I want my skin to absorb its benefits . So , rather than washing it straight away , I let it be on my skin for 10-15 minutes and then wash.

This scrub can be stored for 3-4 weeks if it is kept away from water.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

  1. Nice DIY 🙂 I make my own body scrub which is quite similar to yours. I mix sugar, coconut oil, olive oil, honey and some lemon juice. And sometimes i mix green tea, sugar, coconut oil and few lemon drops and use it as a facial scrub and trust me it just make my skin super soft. I store the one for body but i do not store facial one, i just make it in less amount (taking 1 teabag as a base) and use it right away. Now i m looking forward to ur diy 🙈🙈 as soon as i finish mine i will make this one for me.
