Hope you all are doing well. A body scrub is a great way to pamper your body. A good body scrub not only exfoliates your skin but also allows moisturizers and body lotions to penetrate your skin better. Homemade scrubs remove dead skin cells effectively and also give you a nice dose of much-needed vitamins and minerals without any side effects. So without wasting any time, let’s get started!
- Sugar – brown or white
- Cocoa powder
- Coconut oil
- Avocado oil
- Orange essential oil
Take 1 bowl of granulated white sugar.
Add 2 tbsp of cocoa powder to it. Mix both the ingredients well.
Now add 4 tbsp coconut oil to it.
After this, add 2 tbsp avocado oil.
This step is optional. You can add orange essential oil or any other essential oil of your choice to give this scrub a nice fragrance.
Transfer the scrub to an airtight container.
How to Use:
Take appropriate amount of the scrub and massage it on your body in the shower. Leave it on for around 5-10 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. Do not use it on dry skin; always wash the area to be scrubbed with water before using the scrub. Use this scrub twice a week to see best results. Do not use this scrub on your face as sugar particles are coarse and may damage your skin.
