DIY Body Scrub
To say i’m obsessed with this easy DIY green tea and coconut oil and sugar scrub is an understatement. This recipe will remove dirt and leave your skin hydrated, soft and moisturized. The slightly abrasive textures of the dry green tea leaves and sugar are both great exfoliators to banish dead skin cells. No wonder every major beauty brand is rushing to include these two ingredients in their formulations. Coconut oil is one of my favourite natural beauty ingredients. It’s filled with vitamins and minerals, which locks securely into your skin and is very moisturizing. Lets begin, you will need:
- 2 Green Tea Bags
- 3 Tbsp Coconut sugar
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
You can substitute the coconut sugar with white sugar and the coconut oil with olive oil if you wish.
If you have sensitive or cracked skin do not over exfoliate as you don’t want to further irritate your skin.
Add green tea and sugar in your container.
Heat your coconut oil in your microwave for about 30 seconds.
Don’t over heat your oil as you don’t want the sugar to completely dissolve. Pour and mix everything together.
Voila, you have yourself an amazing scrub. Gently rub and exfoliate for a few minutes and then rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a towel. Make sure you tightly seal your container when you have finished and this scrub will last in your fridge for a month.
