So spring is right around the corner and soon our elbows, knees and everything else will finally see the light of day. This means that keeping the skin soft shiny and moisturised will be a weekly ritual for me. During the warmer months I tend to exfoliate more often and what better way to exfoliate than with brown sugar and coconut oil.
Today I made a small batch since I had some brown sugar left and and needed a soothing body scrub. I just took about half cup of brown sugar and 2 spoons of coconut oil and mashed together and voila a brown sugar and coconut oil scrub. This scrub leaves your skin feeling so supple and leaves a great shine also. If your elbows or knees tend to be darker you can add about a teaspoon of fresh lime juice to help lighten the skin on your knees and elbows.
You can use any type of sugar I tend to favor brown sugar for my scrubs. Happy scrubbing.
