DIY 3-in-1 Exfoliating Scrub

DIY 3-in-1 Exfoliating Scrub

Looking for an all-natural, easy-to-make scrub that can be used on your lips, face, and body? This DIY 3-in-1 organic scrub is the perfect solution! Using just a few simple ingredients, you can create a versatile exfoliant that will leave your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.


  • 1 cup cane sugar: Acts as a gentle exfoliant to remove dead skin cells.
  • 1/2 cup raw local honey: Moisturizes and nourishes the skin with its natural antibacterial properties. For a vegan option, use 1/2 cup olive oil instead.
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil: Adds extra moisture and helps bind the ingredients together.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract: For a pleasant scent (optional).
  • 1-2 drops essential oil: For added fragrance and skin benefits (optional). Lavender, peppermint, frankincense or tea tree oil work well.


  1. Combine Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cane sugar, raw honey or olive oil, and coconut oil. Mix well until you have a consistent, gritty paste.
  2. Add Scent (Optional): If desired, add the vanilla extract and essential oil. Stir to combine.
  3. Store: Transfer the mixture into a clean, airtight jar. Store in a cool, dry place. The scrub should last for several weeks.

How to Use:

For Lips:

  • Application: Take a small amount of the scrub and gently massage it onto your lips in a circular motion for about 30 seconds.
  • Rinse: Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
  • Frequency: Use 2-3 times a week for soft, smooth lips.

For Face:

  • Application: Apply a small amount to damp skin. Gently massage in circular motions, avoiding the eye area, for about 1 minute.
  • Rinse: Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.
  • Frequency: Use once a week to avoid over-exfoliating, which can irritate the skin.

For Body:

  • Application: In the shower, apply the scrub to damp skin. Gently massage in circular motions, focusing on rough areas like elbows, knees, and heels.
  • Rinse: Rinse off thoroughly with warm water.
  • Frequency: Use 2-3 times a week for smooth, glowing skin.

Benefits for Different Skin Types:

Dry Skin:

  • Benefits: The combination of honey and coconut oil (or olive oil) deeply moisturizes and nourishes dry skin, helping to soothe and repair flaky or rough patches.
  • Usage Tip: Follow up with a rich moisturizer to lock in hydration.

Oily Skin:

  • Benefits: Cane sugar exfoliates and removes excess oil without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. Honey’s antibacterial properties help reduce breakouts.
  • Usage Tip: Use sparingly on the face and rinse thoroughly to avoid any residue that might clog pores.

Sensitive Skin:

  • Benefits: The gentle exfoliation from cane sugar, combined with the soothing properties of honey or olive oil, helps reduce irritation and redness.
  • Usage Tip: Test the scrub on a small area first and limit usage to once a week.

Combination Skin:

  • Benefits: This scrub helps balance the skin by exfoliating dry areas and controlling oil in more greasy zones.
  • Usage Tip: Apply to the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) more frequently if those areas are oilier.


  • Patch Test: Always perform a patch test on a small area of your skin to ensure you don't have any allergic reactions to the ingredients.
  • Moisturize: Follow up with your favorite moisturizer to lock in hydration.
  • Avoid Overuse: Exfoliating too often can irritate your skin, so stick to the recommended frequencies.

Benefits of Using This 3-in-1 Scrub:

  • Natural Ingredients: Free from harsh chemicals, this scrub uses natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin.
  • Customizable: Easily adjust the ingredients to suit your preferences or skin type.
  • Cost-Effective: Save money by making your own scrub at home with simple pantry staples.
