Winter is here! Which means it’s time to indulge your skin and take a break from the cold and windy world outside.
For the Face ~ Clarifying Grapefruit Scrub
1/2 grapefruit, 1/2 cup sugar, coconut oil
Juice half a grapefruit and mix with sugar and coconut oil. You can do a quick melt-heat of the coconut oil in the microwave, 10 secs or less is usually enough. Note: be careful with this scrub if you have sensitive skin and avoid the eye area.
For the Body ~ Glowing Tumeric Body Scrub (reduce scars and stretch marks!)
1 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons tumeric, coconut oil
Mix sugar, tumeric and oil. Apply liberally in the shower!
1 tablespoon brown sugar or superfine caster sugar, 1 spoonful of honey, 1 teaspoon coconut or olive oil
Mix sugar, honey and oil right before gently rubbing on lips. Wash off and apply lip balm (Aquaphor is a classic favorite)
1/2 cup sugar, peppermint oil
Mix sugar and a few drops of oil, best if used in conjunction with a warm footbath which has the added benefit of relaxing the whole body
