I have dry and sensitive skin which means I get redness on my face quite easily and flakiness in the month of winter. :/

Oh wait, this post is not about my skin! Let’s talk about the approaching Mother’s Day gift instead.

Getting a Mother’s Day gift for me as a child revolved between faux pink roses or handmade cards. After all it was the thought that counts!

Unlike my sister and I who are skincare product fanatics, my mum’s beauty regime is fairly simple, almost under moisturised in my book ha!

When I go through the Homemade book and found this super easy dry skin scrub, I was sold with the idea that this would be make a really affordable and thoughtful Mother’s Day gift.

This scrub is super moisturising! I used this as part of my hand care regime. After all my hands need some love with all the dish washing I have to do at home and blog post prep.  If the man in your life is into the “art of shaving”, this scrub works great as a pre-shave, according to my beloved. (FYI – The idea of a pre-shave is to assist with a cleaner shave with less irritation.)

Mother's Day Handmade Gift Idea: 3 Ingredients Dry Skin Scrub

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract or peppermint extract

Instructions

  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together until well incorporated.
  • Transfer to a clean and airtight glass container to sow breakdown of the oil.
  • In the shower, massage this mixture gently over damp skin. This will exfoliate and moisturise the skin at the same time. However, it is important that you do not use on broken, irritated or scarred skin as well as avoiding the eyes.
  • Store the mixture in the refrigerator for 6 months to a year.

Notes

You will need an airtight glass container. Adapted from Homemade: Over 700 Everyday Items That Are Easy to Make and Will Save You Money
