We created the Health Hacks on a Budget video course series to make it as easy as possible for everyone to save time and money while living a healthy life. In this series, we share simple recipes, easy tips, and educational information to help you and your family thrive.

The best way to be kind to your skin, save money, and have a ton of fun in the process? Whip up your own DIY face scrubs and masks with items already in the kitchen!

Like we said, your body absorbs 60 percent of what you slather on it, so why not take the nourishing properties of incredible, edible ingredients to a whole new level and feed them to your skin? As weird as it sounds, you'll get a kick out of treating your skin with food.

In this video, Sara Snow shows how to make the most amazing, skin-softening scrub of our dreams, with just three ingredients available at Thrive Market for 25 to 50 percent less than supermarket prices:


½ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cocoa or cacao powder
¼ cup grapeseed oil

Plus, we've got a one-ingredient facial you won't believe. Watch the video to discover this nutritious skin secret!

The best thing about making your own skin care products: Once you have these staples in the house, you'll be able to make many, many batches. No more shelling out big bucks for a single tub of scrub.

Prefer to let the experts formulate your skin care lotions and potions? No problem. We've got skin-pampering natural facial and body care products just for you.

This is one video in a series that's free for all Thrive Gives recipients. See the rest of the videos here. Applying for a free membership through our Giving program is easy—just click here.
