Take Care of your FACE this Fall with this Simple Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub
Do you need an easy way to keep your face moisturized during the cooler months? This easy pumpkin spice sugar scrub will help add some moisturizer to your skin. It doesn’t have to be pumpkin spice scent – I just liked using it for the season. But anything goes. In fact, the sugar and coconut oil is fine as a stand alone. But seasonal flavors are welcome. Essential oils are a great addition to sugar scrubs too.
Why Sugar and Coconut Oil?
Sugar acts a natural scrub with it’s coarseness. Coconut oil adds moisturizer to your skin. It has such great benefits. I shared a whole bunch of it’s uses in this post. Mixing both together is an easy way to get your face clean and moisturized without using harsh chemicals. Plus you’ll save money since you may already have both ingredients in your pantry (at least the sugar). Who doesn’t?!!
Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub Recipe
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Spice (more if you like)
Note: If you don’t have pumpkin spice then mix 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp cloves and a dash of all-spice.
- Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl
- Place in a tightly covered glass cosmetic jar or mason jar
- Use as needed – I like to use this sugar scrub almost weekly when I have it.
- Add some sugar scrub to your hands, wet it a little and rub it all over your face. Gently massage.
- Rinse with warm water.
- No need to moisturize right after since the coconut oil will be a natural moisturizer:)
If you use dark brown sugar, the mixture will turn very brown once the coconut oil and spices are blended with the sugar. And it will smell wonderful too. It’s fast and easy and you’ll have an all-natural face cleanser and moisturizer to help keep your face less-dry during the cooler months. My face always feels so soft after using this scrub. I just love how nice and brown it looks when it’s newly mixed. It looks like something to eat (I mean, you could technically eat it, right?)
This is how it may look if it lasts a few weeks. Not as vibrant as when the sugar was totally wet from mixing with the oil but still brown and awesome for your skin.
