Keep your skin silky smooth with this oatmeal milk and honey sugar scrub! This DIY dry skin oatmeal milk and honey sugar scrub recipe will leave your skin feeling moisturized and hydrated this winter. You only need 4-ingredients to make this hydrating sugar scrub recipe. If you are in need of a way to keep your skin from feeling chapped and dry, this sugar scrub is a must for you.

I tend to have dry skin in the colder months the most. I will find dry patches on my knees, elbows, and my hands get chapped from time to time. Having a soothing oatmeal milk and honey scrub really helps lock in moisture so when I am out in the elements they don’t just suck all the moisture out of my skin (or so it feels). If you too want silky smooth skin and want a homemade exfoliant, here is a straightforward and easy recipe to follow for a homemade sugar scrub.

Oatmeal Milk and Honey Sugar Scrub

Each ingredient in this oatmeal milk and honey sugar scrub recipe offers different components to help protect your skin from the harsh elements. You can use this sugar scrub recipe all year round. I will break down what each ingredient brings to the scrub, and how it will help your skin.

  • Sugar | Sugar is going to act as the exfoliant in this scrub. As you massage this sugar scrub into your skin, the sugar granules will help pull away any dry skin and act as an exfoliant to really help soften your skin.
  • Olive Oil | The olive oil will help protect and hydrate your skin. Olive oil is also great to use to help protect your skin from the sugar granules in the scrub. If you didn’t have a lubricant like olive oil it would be harsh on your skin.
  • Honey | Honey can help soothe irritated skin, offer moisture to your skin, and can even help treat puffy eyes and eczema. It offers a soothing aspect which is nice.
  • Skim Milk | Using milk in your sugar scrub is a must. The lactic acid in your milk will help remove dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling super smooth and soft. A little milk is needed but goes a long way. The alpha-hydroxy acid in the milk is why it is so effective for your skin.

 Are Sugar Scrubs Good For Your Skin

Sugar scrubs offer different benefits than say a salt scrub. Sugars offer natural humectant properties, which will result in a more hydrated skin after, vs salt.  This sugar scrubs also don’t strip your skin of the natural oils, so it is better to use a sugar scrub over a salt. Sugar acts as a natural exfoliant for your skin.

How to Make Your Oatmeal Milk And Honey Sugar Scrub Recipe

How Often Should I Use The Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrubs are not something you want to use every single day. This milk and honey sugar scrub can be used 2-3 times a week. Just rub in circular motions for the areas you are wanting to exfoliate and hydrate. If you are using this on your face be aware of your eyes.

The reason you do not want to do this daily is the abrasive aspect of the sugar. If you are always scrubbing your skin it can actually damage your skin over time. Limit it to a few times a week, and go from there. If you feel you need this more often, leave the sugar out of the recipe and soak in the tub with the milk and honey.
