Coconut Oil Exfoliating Scrub
Coconut oil and saw salt are such versatile products--in the kitchen and as a beauty product! This exfoliating scrub will leave your skin silky smooth and moisturized.
According to huffingtonpost.com, commercial moisturizers contain lots of water, which makes you feel like your skin is being moisturized. But as soon as the water dries, your skin becomes dry again. Also, many commercial brands of moisturizers contain petroleum-based ingredients that can suffocate the skin. In contrast, coconut oil provides deep and real moisture. It helps strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cell on the skin's surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture. It also great for shine and as a natural moisturizer for your hair.
Sea salt will not only help detoxify your skin, but will help exfoliate dead skin cells as you rinse it off.
To make the scrub, combine 3 T. coconut oil to 1 T. sea salt. Enjoy!
For an extra special foot treatment, massage into feet and cover with socks before bed!
