I always love to share my DIY recipes. I believe that the power of nature can do anything. In winters our skin becomes dry, flaky and rough. I love to scrub my skin with some effective natural ingredients. So I have prepared this coconut milk and cinnamon scrub. It absolutely feels spa-like when I use it. I can’t believe that I made this amazing scrub! But yah, I did. Let’s get started!

Coconut Milk: Due to its rich and creamy consistency, it works as a great moisturizer. It deeply moisturizes the skin and keeps it hydrated. It is rich in Vitamin A and C, and contains a lot of proteins. These factors provide a smooth and radiant skin. It can treat sun damage, and can provide a great relief from the pain of sunburn.

1. You need to crush the cinnamon in fine medium beads. This is a body scrub, not for face. Here I am using medium scrubbing ingredients.
2. Mix 2 spoons of coconut milk and 1 tablespoon of crushed cinnamon together. Consistency should be little thick creamy. I always prefer a liquid coconut milk cream.
3. Add some lemon juice into the mixture and combine them nicely.
4. Now add 4-5 drops of vanilla and 1 spoon of honey. Mix all the ingredients well.
5. The super creamy coconut milk scrub is ready to use now. It smells so good and also very creamy.
I had no idea about the skincare benefits of coconut milk before I tried this. I generally use coconut milk as a hair care product, but it is just as good. Its thick and creamy formula gives a very soft skin. I have dry skin during this season and it becomes rough. I need a scrub which can also provide super hydration. Coconut milk is totally effective for dry skin, and cinnamon works best as an exfoliator.
Overall this body scrub makes my skin buttery soft and fresh. It can totally make it smooth and all the dry and dead cells are gone. Cinnamon keeps the blood circulation smooth in its own way. Also it has a very nice smell which keeps skin fresh and lively. Here I am using lemon and honey too. They work as skin lightening ingredients. These two ingredients make skin glow and help to remove the suntan also. It never feels oily after application either. This is so easy to prepare; all the ingredients are always available at home.
It provides a very clean fresh skin which is highly nourished. I am amazed with the staying power of the softness. It’s very long lasting. Actually coconut milk can challenge all the long lasting moisturizer. As a body scrub, you may use this any time. Hope you like this super creamy scrub. Try this. 🙂
