Updated: Oct 25, 2023



Marie’s fantastic Brown Sugar and Coconut Oil Facial and Body Scrub’s granulated particles exfoliate your skin, clearing away dry and dead skin cells effortlessly. This scrub helps create smoother, softer, healthier skin and as a bonus offers a youthful glow. We’ve even personally experienced this scrubs ability to heal acne and reduce the visibility of scars.


Brown sugar and Coconut Oil is gentle to the skin making it ideal ingredients for sensitive skin. These ingredients are also affordable for every DIY’ers budget.

Having a regular skin care routine is important for everyone; female and male alike. The most important elements of your skin care routine should include exfoliating and moisturizing. Using our brown sugar and coconut oil facial and body scrub will help to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin.

Coconut Oil is a Great Base for the Exfoliation Properties of the Brown Sugar:

If you are into DIY skin care products, like Marie and I are, you will love this combination. Just mix 1 cup of coconut oil and 2 cups of brown sugar together using a food processor. While in the shower apply to any skin that can use exfoliation and moisturizing and then rinse with warm water.


I absolutely love how the warm shower water dissolves away the sugar crystals. All I need to do is scrub … scrub … scrub and then viola, I have incredibly soft and moisturized skin.


Storage Tip: Store your scrub in a glass jar with an airtight and moisture-proof lid. I, Emmaline, love to store mine in a small jar with cute white jar lid.

Did you have any idea that putting fat and sugar on your face would be such a wonder product? If this scrub is not yet part of your daily skin care routine, here are the reasons why it should be.


The Main Benefits of Brown Sugar and Coconut Oil to the Skin:

  1. Both Brown Sugar and Coconut Oil are Rich In Antioxidants. Studies claim that brown sugar can eliminate harmful free radicals. Coconut Oil also has antioxidant components, and when used on the face can help boost your nutrient factor and fight against environmental stressors that accelerate signs of aging.

  2. Brown Sugar Contains AHA: Cane brown sugar is rich in Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). Alpha Hydroxy Acid compound can penetrate your skin and can break down the compound that binds the skin cells. This promotes cell regeneration and rejuvenation. We all want to look younger!

  3. Brown sugar and Coconut Oil both have anti-bacterial properties and brown sugar has added glycolic acid that keeps your skin radiant and healthy.

  4. Brown Sugar Exfoliates Your Skin Without Damaging It: Brown sugar is much softer than white granulated sugar. So, it gently exfoliates your skin without damaging it.

  5. Coconut Oil is Anti-Microbial: Meaning it is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory for the skin. Basically it is one of God’s most wonderful creations.

  6. Coconut Oil Hydrates the Skin: Coconut oil is made up of fatty acids which help to reduce dryness and allow your skin to retain moisture.

  7. Coconut Oil Protects the Skin: Coconut oil provides a protective barrier, helping shield skin from environmental toxins and dirt that you’re faced with everyday.

  8. Coconut Oil Smooths the Skin: Rub some coconut oil onto your skin and you’ll immediately feel its soft, smoothing effect. And over time it can actually help to improve texture.

  9. Coconut Oil Minimizes the Look of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Coconut oil can actually help to diminish the signs of aging when used regularly. It soaks into skin and makes those little lines and wrinkles appear far less obvious.

  10. Coconut Oil Calms Temporary Skin Redness: Coconut Oil has a soothing, calming effect and can help reduce temporary redness when it rears its “red” and angry face.

  11. Coconut Oil Absorbs Easily: Coconut oil smooths into skin easily and swiftly, providing instant hydration and protection.

  12. Coconut Oil Soothes Irritated Skin: If your skin is prone to irritations or is highly sensitive, coconut oil can help reduce discomfort and provide soothing relief.

Now that you know what wonderful substances brown sugar and coconut oil are and what they will do for your skin, it is time to make our fabulous Brown Sugar and Coconut Oil Facial and Body Scrub and use it to keep your skin hydrated. This scrub will lock in moisture so your skin never feels dry again.
