    DIY Spring Spa Treatment

    Last updated 11 months ago

    Treat yourself to fresh Spring skin without stepping foot from your home.  Spring is a time for rejuvenation and renewal, and this do-it-yourself Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub is the perfect treat to refresh your skin.

    Body scrubs are important to exfoliate your skin, removing dead skin cells. Using natural oils allows your scrub to dually act as an exfoliant and moisturizer. Here’s all you need to make your own Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub, from

    • 2 1/2 cups sugar in the raw
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 4-5 tablespoons vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup almond oil

    After mixing the ingredients, apply a small amount to a washcloth and scrub gently in a circular motion.  Be careful not to apply too much pressure, which may cause skin irritation and scratches.  After applying, rinse off and apply your favorite moisturizer. 

    This body scrub will also make an excellent homemade gift! Package in a mason jar and wrap with ribbon or twine.

    The Spa at Turf Valley, located in Ellicott City, MD, offers a variety of relaxing spa treatments, including massages, facials, and body treatments.  If you’re in need of a spa day away from home, call 410.203.2755. Stay connected with Turf Valley on Facebook and Twitter for more spa treats!
