How to Make your Own Body Scrub for Soft Skin
During these cold days we have a great excuse to spend more time indoors, focusing on self-care and in particular, maintaining radiant, healthy skin.
Regularly exfoliating in winter can have lots of benefits. Delicately rubbing the skin with a gentle scrub helps remove dead skin cells. These dead cells can harden and make your skin look dry and flaky. By scrubbing your skin gently, you reveal the new and dewy skin hidden underneath.
Another benefit from scrubbing your skin is that it will stimulate circulation and cellular regeneration! This will give your skin a younger and firmer appearance.
Still not convinced? Here we have a simple DIY recipe you can whip up by using goodies that you might already have in your pantry!
- ¼ cup sea salt
- ¼ cup ground coffee
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- optional: pinch each of ground nutmeg and clove (for scent)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until combined. For best results, apply to clean, damp skin in the shower. Don't forget to hydrate after exfoliating with a nourishing body lotion or oil for seriously soft skin.
