Sugar scrubs were my "gateway project" into DIY self-care, because they're so easy to put together and inexpensive. I do a body scrub at least once a week, and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and unbelievably hydrated. I even think my skin looks brighter afterwards. All you really need is oil and granulated sugar, and you can infinitely customize them to suit your preferences. You can make a basic scrub with just a one-to-one ratio of oil and sugar, but if you want to experiment, I've put together a few of my favorite combinations for you to try. They might also make inexpensive holiday happies.
