Christmas is Coming quick. good gift DIY: Warm Vanilla Brown Sugar & Coconut Body Scrub This brown sugar scrub smells absolutely amazing! It's definitely the perfect treat for skin that's begging to be pampered. Not only is it a wonderful exfoliant, but thanks to the coconut oil included in this recipe, it's very moisturizing to the skin as well.
Without a doubt, one of the best things I ever did for my skin was to start making my own scrubs. The stuff at the store is chock full of stuff that's bad for your skin - all sorts of chemicals and alcohol. Yuck. Do your skin a favor... Go out and buy a mason jar. Add coarse sea salt, olive oil, almond oil, and if you can find it - jojoba oil. Use daily. Love your skin again. I add the olive oil and jojoba oil first to the salt and then add as much almond oil as I need to make it smell great. When you get out of the shower, your skin will be smooth, silky and you shouldn't need lotion. In the summer, you can add a little coconut oil for a tropical smell! ~ Constance :)
Pinner said: My daughter showed me this years ago :) "Seriously your skin will never feel or look better! Can be simplified to 3/4 coffee grounds, 1/4 brown sugar and a dash of olive oil to bring it into paste form... YOU MUST TRY! Exfoliates, fights cellulite, gets rid of the red bumps on the backs of arms, moisturizes, the works!"
