DIY: Treat Your Skin to a Sugar Cookie Body Scrub

By Pia Bhattacharya, SELF Magazine

Tis' the season for hot chocolate by the fire, snuggly sweaters and scrumptious desserts. Because we love our tasty treats, here's a quick recipe for a deliciously sweet sugar cookie body scrub. It'll leave you with smooth, polished,
skin
--and it smells good enough to eat!

What you need:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. ginger

What to do:
  1. Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl, except for the vegetable oil.
  2. Pour in the vegetable oil a little at a time, stirring the mixture as you go.
  3. When finished, the consistency should be thick and all ingredients should be completely mixed in. It should smell just like a sugar cookie!

Whip up a few jars of this sweet-smelling scrub at once. Add bows and a label and you've got some great stocking-stuffers!
