DIY Body Scrub

OK, so to be honest, I am not usually a big fan of DIY projects for several reasons: I do not have the necessary patience, energy or skills. I could never make a clock from scratch (DIY clocks do exist!) or some other complicated stuff and most of the time I do not even bother because the bought version is definitely better than what I can come up with. 

However, I like making my own body scrub. It takes about 5 minutes to make, it requires only 2-3 ingredients and it is a healthier version than the bought one. 

Here is a photo of my recently made rose scented body scrub:

Basically what you need to do is mix 1 part salt or sugar with 2 parts oil. That's it! You've just made your own body scrub! You can also add a few drops of essential oil in it , I usually use orange or cinnamon. 

I have made body scrubs with all 3 versions of oil and I think the olive oil is the best option, it is the most hydrating. After using this body scrub in the shower, you don't even need a lotion afterwards! Your skin is already silky and soft! 

Do you use to make some of your beauty products yourself? Which ones?

Founded in 2012, Ladylike is a blog that covers lifestyle, fashion, travel, healthy eating and relationships.

The blog is called Ladylike because I love being feminine. What can I say more?

Thank God I am a woman!
