Homemade DIY Apple Pie Sugar Scrub Cubes

I saw a meme on Facebook a few days ago that had Michigan’s “actual” seasons…from summer to “false” fall, then “last summer” then “real” fall.

Y’all. It’s so true! Last week it was in the 60s here, and this week we’re topping out at 80 degrees. My sinuses and my skin aren’t having it.

I’ve got cracked cuticles (ow!), rough knees and elbows (even though I’m moisturizing every.single.day!), and a constant runny nose. And since it seems like these temperature swings aren’t going to stop anytime soon, I have resigned myself to treating the symptoms, starting with my dry skin.

Because that ish hurts, Y’all!

*If you truly want this to smell apple-y, you can purchase a soap scent that smells like apple pie and use 5-6 drops in place of (or with) the essential oils. 

Directions For DIY Apple Pie Sugar Scrub Cubes

Grab a silicone mold (I suggest a 10-15 count mold like this one), and gather all of your ingredients.
Sprinkle the granulated sugar over the bottoms of each mold cube, and set the mold aside.

Once it’s melted, allow it to cool for about a minute.

Add the vitamin E oil and essential oils. Stir to fully incorporate the oils.

Freeze your mold for an hour to allow your sugar scrub cubes to fully harden. Once the sugar scrub cubes are hard, you can pop them out of the mold and store them in an airtight container in a cool dry space.

How to Use Sugar Scrub Cubes

To use your apple pie sugar scrub cubes, you’ll want to grab one or two and bring them with you into the shower or bath. Wet the area you’d like to exfoliate, and gently rub the cube on clean, damp skin to exfoliate.

The sugar exfoliates, while the shea and coconut oil help moisturize (which is awesome).
Rinse any residue off, and you are good to go!
I actually keep a little jar of these next to my bathroom sink, so that I can exfoliate my hands (and moisturize) after I wash them. Now, I don’t do this daily, probably every two to three days.
