My favorite and most used homemade body scrub: Coconut and Brown Sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar or white cane sugar
1 Tablespoon of Coconut oil (Olive Oil is a wonderful substitute as well)
Dime-sized amount of gentle liquid face or body soap (to help with scrub consistency)
Blend all ingredients together, scrub onto skin for a couple minutes and rinse off!
Brightening face scrub/ mask: Baking Soda Polish
1 Tablespoon of baking soda
Quarter sized amount of mild liquid face soap
squirt of lemon juice
Mix all ingredients to get a paste like consistency (add more baking soda if it is too fluid). Gently massage onto wet skin, and leave on face for 5 minutes. Rise off with warm water and pat skin dry. You will have soft, brightened skin all day!
Feel well, so you can be well.
Cheers and indulge on a budget!
