The DIY Summer Body Scrub

The following is a guest post from our friends at The Beauty Department.

It's super important to exfoliate in bathing suit season, when you want your skin—and, like, lots of skin—to look vibrant, soft and glowy. A good body scrub's essential, but sometimes they're extremely expensive, especially for something we can't help but slather on by the fistful.

So this season we'll be making our own body scrub, using all-natural ingredients like coconut oil, raw cane sugar and rose petals. With that fresh, organic formula and an adorable mason jar as a container, it'll make all our showers feel a little more luxurious.

For a complete step-by-step guide to making the body scrub, please visit Thebeautydepartment.com.
