HOW TO: Impromptu Body Scrub+Reuse Unused Body Butters
I was about to do my long bath ritual last night, then I found out that I already ran out of body scrub. Bam! End of the world for me haha! Seriously, a body scrub is one of my weekly treats so I make sure to include it whenever I have the chance to spend some quality time with myself in the shower.
What to do, what to do? Since body scrubs are just gritty humectants in my opinion, the obvious choice was to grab a body butter and some raw, ground coffee. Most DIY body scrub tutorials would suggest oil, particularly Olive oil, in lieu of body butter/lotion but nah, that's too messy in the shower, not to mention Olive oil is a lil' pricey and I'd rather use it on food!
If you have any unused body butter in your dresser, this tutorial will show you how to put it into good use by turning it into a body scrub.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Body butter or body lotion
Click READ MORE and know how to whip up this very cheap yet effective body scrub!
STEP 1: Prepare your small plastic container and plastic spoon. I prefer something with cover so I could create a batch that's good enough for two showers.
STEP 2: Using the tail of the plastic spoon, scoop out some body butter. If you're using lotion, that's easier because you just have to pour it into the container. I prefer using body butter because it feels more exquisite. :)
STEP 3: When you've finally transferred the body scrub base into the container, even out the surface of the body butter (doesn't have to be perfectly even) to make way for the ground coffee bits.
STEP 4: Pour a spoonful of ground coffee onto the container.
STEP 5: Mix, mix, mix. Mmmm..This looks like Tiramisu to me!
STEP 6: Gradually increase the amount of ground coffee if you want a grittier scrub-go ahead, indulge because you won't be charged for it! From Tiramisu, it became Chocolate Peanut Butter!
STEP 7: Voila! We now have a very, very, very affordable body scrub! The smell of fresh coffee was very energizing! :)
STEP 8: From Tiramisu, to Chocolate Peanut Butter, to Chocolate Mousse! :) Anyway, I suggest that you whip up an amount that's good for one to three uses only so as to keep everything fresh.
So when you're just at home, try out this homemade body scrub and treat your skin in the shower! Hope you like this tutorial! :)
