Today I have a really cool DIY coming your way. As I mentioned before, I always reserve some time on the weekend to pamper myself. This usually involves a long shower where I start my skin care routine off wit a good peeling to get rid of dead skin cells. Although I love buying very effective products for that matter, I also got into whipping up things in the kitchen myself to use on my skin. And starting it off with a Lip Scrub last year, I now thought I would take it a step further by mixing up some of my favourite foods and turn them into a heavenly smelling body scrub. This natural orange coconut scrub is not only as effective as the store-bought stuff, it is also super easy and quick to prepare. Bonus? The coconut oil in this scrub nourishes the skin and makes it oh so soft. Scroll down for recipe.
What you need:
1 cup/250g raw sugar
zest of 1 orange
5-6 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
Put the sugar in a bowl and a mix with the orange zest and coconut oil. Stir well and put into a sealable container. Get in the shower, massage it into wet skin and shower off.
