It can be tempting to spend a lot of money on a nice body scrub, but did you know you can make high-quality scrubs from the comfort of your own apartment for much less? This week, Nantucket Gate Blog is here to share with you some of our favorite skin scrub recipes. Keep your skin happy and healthy this time of year by making one of these!

Green Tea Scrub

Are you looking for something to help your skin to feel more rejuvenated? This green tea body scrub might be just what you need. Not only will this scrub leave your skin feeling soft and moisturized, but it will also help to tighten it up and reduce any scarring that you may have. You’ll need coconut oil, green tea bags, and white sugar.

Coconut Oatmeal Scrub

Perfect for scrubbing your hands or for any other other part of your body, this coconut oatmeal scrub will exfoliate your skin and leave it feeling as smooth as ever. It also has brown sugar in it, so if you are hoping to remove facial blackheads, this might be a great option! Just make sure to keep the scrub away from your eyes.

Honey and Blueberry Face Scrub

This face scrub is filled with ingredients that can do wonders for your skin! Since blueberries are filled with both Vitamin C and antioxidants, this scrub is a great way to treat your skin to all these nutrients that you usually save for the inside of your body. On top of that, honey is a natural anti-inflammatory, and so it is a great way to keep your skin calm and blemish free.

Coffee Foot Scrub

Don’t let the color of this scrub scare you away, because it will do wonders for your feet! The two main ingredients are coffee ground and bananas, and when combined, they will both tone your feet and get them smooth at the same time. This scrub is perfect as you prepare to start showing off your feet in sandals again, or for any time you want to make your feet feel like a million bucks.
