Natural Beauty: The Best Body Scrub Recipe May 16, 2017
All good things come from the kitchen. And we’re not just talking about food. We’ve teamed up with the lovely, glowy skinned people behind Clean Beauty Co to show you that a luxurious beauty regime is all about feeding your skin with natural, active ingredients. They have created the best body scrub recipe for us that you can create from the contents of your kitchen cupboard! The all-natural ingredients of this body scrub will promote soft, healthy-looking skin and leave you smelling like a sweet tropical coconut grove.
Zest is Best
Lemon and lime are the hero ingredients here; the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) that naturally occur in the fruits act as a non-abrasive exfoliator and cleanser, buffing away the rough, dead skin cells, leaving your skin glowing. We’ve opted for a dual approach with both pink himalayan salt and sugar as the abrasive scrub – a power duo that will help to shift particularly dry and coarse patches of skin
The salt is incredibly detoxifying, helping to draw out toxins and impurities, stimulating microstimulation which will leave your skin glowing from tip to toe. Finally, coconut and olive oils are a powerfully hydrating duo, softening and moisturising the new skin left behind.
- 1 tbsp Pink Himalayan Salt
- 1 tbsp Cane Sugar
- 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- Juice of half a lemon
- Juice of half a lime
- Combine all ingredients and stir into a thick paste.
- Apply to clean skin, ensuring mixture is evenly spread all over. If you have time, leave to sit for 15 minutes to allow the citrus juice to work its magic.
- Massage skin well as you rinse the mixture off
