Even though I have a few commercial body scrubs in my stash, I like to use a DIY scrub on some days, mainly out of boredom and wanting some novelty. That or to get rid of some ingredients in the kitchen. Anyway, many ingredients can double up as homemade scrubs but without a binder like yogurt or honey, they disintegrate quickly. So the other day I was making my tea with the disposable tea bags and looking at them, I thought hey, these make perfect scrub bags! I must have been inspired by the Jo Lauren Colloidal Oatmeal Bath Bags!
So what exactly is a scrub bag? Well, a bag for scrubbing! More precisely, a bag containing some goodies to scrub your skin. Because of the somewhat abrasive material, I’ll only recommend this for the body.
Ingredients are based on whatever you can find in your kitchen to exfoliate or scrub. Like what I have is almond flour and sugar. I also had some milk powder and I thought, might as well add in too.
The good thing about putting the ingredients in a bag is that the ingredients don’t disintegrate quickly. There’s no need for a binder and I could scrub longer too without making a big mess.
Because of the ingredients used, my skin felt very soft and supple afterwards. If I can find a bag of softer material, I don’t mind using it on my face too.
