If you’ve got 2 tablespoonfuls of sugar, you’re well on your way to a heavenly, all-natural scrub! All you’ll need to add to the sugar is 2 tablespoonfuls of coconut oil and 3 drops of vanilla extract. Mix the ingredients together, apply to wet skin, and exfoliate to your heart’s content. We couldn’t believe how satiny-soft our skin felt afterward.

DIY cosmetics can be affordable and easy to make, and when you choose cruelty-free ingredients, there’s no danger that cruel tests on animals were involved. DIY cosmetics also make perfect holiday gifts. We suggest making a big batch and decorating some small bottles with paint or ribbon for an adorable vegan gift for everyone at your holiday gathering.

Looking for a product that’s beyond your DIY skill level? Thankfully, hundreds of beauty companies are cruelty-free, and many are entirely vegan.
