This week I decided to use fresh cranberries to make a DIY Cranberry Sugar Scrub, because I’ve seen really lovely looking one in the shop, but I wanted to make it myself.
I travel a lot between London and Prague and we can have long, harsh winters that are rough on the skin. Some of my family members have eczema, others just really dry skin. I also have dry skin, and I’ve found that Sugar Scrubs help me. I like to experiment and create my own DIY scrubs, so I was very excited to get these fresh cranberries, and try them in a scrub!
Sugar and coconut oil are staples in my pantry, so I pulled them out and tried a few combinations until I got one that was just the right consistency.
Because this has fresh fruit in it, I store mine in the refrigerator. I wash my hands frequently throughout the day, usually in the kitchen sink, so I just grab the jar and use it after the hand soap on my clean hands, and it keeps my hands looking great.
Cranberry Sugar Scrub Recipe Ingredients
1/2 Cup Cranberry Puree
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
4oz Mason Jar
- Puree cranberries in food processor (or mash them with a fork, until nice and smooth)
- Heat coconut oil in microwave for 30 seconds, to make it easier to mix.
- Combine remaining ingredients with coconut oil in a small bowl and mix well.
- Scoop into a mason jar and seal.
Makes 1 1/2 – 2 Cups of Scrub, should last 3-4 weeks. I store mine in the refrigerator between uses since I used fresh fruit.
