Glowing Unicorn Sugar Scrub

2/3 cup sugar
pastel food coloring
dash of liquid coconut oil
pinch of gold mica powder

Divide the sugar into as many different colors as you would like, I went with 4 colors in addition to the white. Add just one drop of food dye for each color you would like to make, more than this might be too much. Stir or cover and shake well to fully mix the color through. Follow these steps for each color that you want.

Then carefully pour each one into a dish, add the mica powder and then gently swirl or stir in the colors together two twice, then add the coconut oil. Add just enough oil to let the sugar clump together.

This is best used as part of a bath or while showering by rubbing the sugar scrub in soft circles on your skin, being careful when stepping out of the bath to ensure you do not slip. Pat dry and lightly moisturize after to complete your luxurious at home spa treatment.

    I have never done a sugar scrub before but this technique seems very easy to do at home. I am looking for a new skin treatment so this might be just the thing I need.
