Three DIY Holiday Body Scrubs for Glowing Winter Skin

Hey everyone!! This season is the time to up that exfoliation game and get any dead skin off as we shift to the colder, much dryer weather. Our skin is constantly impacted by several external factors. Whether it be our diet, exercise, climate, etc., I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for healthy skin. Your skin is the largest organ you have! I’ve found that these three body scrubs below make for the best smelling and most exfoliating scrubs. I really liked how the almond oil made my skin feel, as well. After I do a body scrub, I like to put Africas’s Secret by Alaffia on. You can find it here on Amazon, or at your local health food store.

Benefits of these scrubs include:


better circulation of blood vessels and lymph

internal detoxification

smooths the skin

enhances absorption of moisturizers

prevents ingrown hairs


1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

2 tbsp coconut oil

a splash of almond oil

PEPPERMINT PATTY (my favorite)

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp cocoa powder

a few drops of peppermint essential oil

2 tbsp coconut oil

a splash of almond oil


2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp ground coffee

1/2 tablespoon almond milk

dash of vanilla extract

2 tbsp coconut oil

a splash of almond oil

***careful using this one in the shower…the ground coffee can get kind of messy!

p.s. if you’re allergic to coconuts, just use almond oil!
