It’s no surprise that here at Chic Trends we love DIY’s, especially if they’re a much cheaper version of a beauty favorite. The one thing we love even more than a great DIY is glowing skin. Summer is coming to end so what better way to start the colder season than with perfectly polished skin?

If you’ve got these 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes, you’re already on your way to the easiest DIY body scrub.

What you’ll need:


½ cup of soap (grate you’re favorite soap so it’ll melt easier)
¼ of your favorite oil (coconut, almond, jojoba, etc.)
¾ cup of granulated sugar
Essential oil of your choice (completely optional!)

Now follow these steps:

Step 1. In a bowl, combine the soap and the oil and mix well. Heat in the microwave for 10 seconds. Stir the mixture well and heat it up for 10 more seconds until the mixture is liquefied.

Step 2. After heating the mixture, add the sugar and combine thoroughly. If you would like a bit of fragrance, now is the time to add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

Step 3. In a silicone ice cube tray, pack the scrub in well. Freeze it for about 20 minutes and package in an air tight container after the scrub has set.

And that’s it! A quick body scrub that will make your skin soft and polished.
