Ingredients Needed

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Scale to weigh quantities
  • Large bowl
  • Small whisk
  • Small cup or container
  • Container to store your DIY Strawberry Scented Body Scrub

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

Steps: DIY Strawberry Scented Body Scrub

1- Start by putting 150 grams (5.29 oz) of foaming bath butter in a large bowl.

3- Add 4 grams (0.14 oz) of coconut oil. If the coconut oil is semi-solid due to cold temperature, melt it in a bain-marie (hot water bath). A bain-marie is made by placing the bowl containing the semi-solid coconut oil in a larger pot of hot, steaming water. This will gradually heat and melt the oil. Stir while the oil is melting.

How To Use: DIY Strawberry Scented Body Scrub

To make the most of your Barbie-Inspired DIY Strawberry Scented Body Scrub for radiant skin, follow these steps:

  1. Wet Your Skin: Start with damp skin in the shower or bath.
  2. Apply the Scrub: Take a generous amount of the scrub and apply it to your skin. The foaming action will create a soapy lather. Avoid introducing water into the scrub container to maintain its freshness and longevity.
  3. Choose Your Method:
    — By Hand: If you prefer a gentle exfoliation, use your hands. Massage the scrub into your skin with gentle circular motions.
    — With a Loofah: For a slightly deeper exfoliation, apply the scrub to a wet loofah and use it to massage your skin. The loofah’s texture will enhance the scrubbing effect.
  4. Rinse Thoroughly: Rinse off the scrub thoroughly with warm water, ensuring no residue is left behind.
  5. Pat Dry: After rinsing, pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
  6. Moisturize: Finish your routine by applying your favorite moisturizer to lock in the goodness.

You can enjoy this spa-like experience up to three times a week to maintain that radiant Barbie-inspired glow, whether you choose to scrub by hand or with a loofah. Happy pampering!
