The end of July is approaching, but summer weather is far from over for many of us! Basically everywhere I’ve lived, August is decidedly part of summer. Where we currently live in Hawaii, September is usually our hottest month of the year. With several more months before I can reasonably expect to see nighttime lows consistently “dip” into the mid-70s, summer is definitely still on my mind!
With plenty of hot weather ahead, I decided to put together a roundup of delicious sugar scrub recipes for summer. These sugar scrub recipes have bright, summery scents and are the perfect way to exfoliate and rehydrate your skin after a day in the sun or plane trip for vacation. I hope you enjoy these 12+ sugar scrub recipes for summer!
