While there are hundreds of options for sugar scrubs in store, if you are on a budget or simply get a thrilled out of DIY projects we have a sugar scrub recipe for you. At Satori Laser, we recommend that our clients use an abrasive scrub on treated areas to aid hair loss about one week after each treatment–this is when the hair begins falling out, so a sugar scrub is a good way to help the process along. And what’s even better is that you can customize it to your own liking.
What you’ll need:
-1 cup of sugar. Either brown or white sugar will work.
-½ cup of either coconut, olive, or almond oil
-½ tsp of Vitamin E oil (optional)
-½ tsp of vanilla extract, cinnamon, or lemon (this is just for the scent–the choice is yours!)
Then simply throw everything together in a bowl and mix. This scrub will last you up to two months and is incredibly easy to make with things you already have in your kitchen. If you have particularly dry skin and stubborn hairs, use white sugar, as it will be more abrasive than brown; however, if your skin is sensitive, use brown.
There are a ton of other fun recipes for different flavors of sugar scrubs all over the internet. Check out Pinterest if you really want to get creative. This is just a simple guide to get you started, but there is a lot more you can do to customize your scrub to your liking.
