Beyond the dreamy scent, vanilla plays the antioxidant card, fighting off free radicals and keeping your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. It's skincare with a side of sweet.

The DIY Vanilla Body Scrub Recipe:

Here’s everything you need to make your super scrub at home. And we’ve kept the recipe to three simple ingredients.


1 cup brown sugar
½ cup organic coconut oil (or your fave carrier oil)

1. Mix it Up:
In a bowl, combine brown sugar, melted coconut oil, and that heavenly vanilla extract. Stir until you've got a dreamy, fragrant blend.

2. Whip it Real Good:
Whip it like you mean it! This scrub should have a consistency that's just right – not too dry, not too oily. Adjust your sugar or oil if needed.

3. Seal the Deal:
Transfer your mix to an airtight jar. Pro tip: It's Instagram-worthy, so don't forget to give it a mini photoshoot before sealing, and of course, tag @makemyshave 😉

What are the skin benefits of exfoliating?

Exfoliation is a skincare superhero, offering a range of benefits for your skin.

Beyond creating a smoother, brighter complexion by sloughing off dead skin cells, regular exfoliation plays a crucial role in addressing specific concerns.

For those battling cellulite, psoriasis, or eczema, gentle exfoliation provides relief by removing dry, flaky skin and stimulating blood flow.

It's a champion in the fight against ingrown hairs, preventing irritation by keeping follicles clear.

If body acne is a concern, exfoliation unclogs pores and reduces the buildup of oil and bacteria.

Additionally, this skincare ritual contributes to reducing redness in stretch marks, promoting even skin tone. The key is to choose the right exfoliant for your skin type, be gentle in application, and make it a consistent part of your routine.

Ultimately, exfoliation unveils your skin's natural radiance, helping you put your best glow forward.
