I love DIY beauty projects and DIY body scrub is one of the easier ones that you can make. This DIY turmeric body scrub has the added benefit of using turmeric, which is great as a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Turmeric is also touted as a great ingredient for acne prone skin and can be soothing for irritated skin.
I love sugar scrubs too because the sugar dissolves nicely. Both of the sugars in this are great for exfoliating.The almond oil in the recipe is a great skin softener and it also moisturizes the skin. You can substitute with olive oil if desired. Vitamin E oil further moisturizes the skin and also acts as a preservative.
This recipe uses cinnamon bark essential oil, which has a delicate scent. For skin care, it kills bacteria and promotes healing. If you prefer a different scent, you can substituent for a different oil.
