Coconut & Lemon Sugar Scrub For Radiant Skin
Delicious, hydrating and refreshing, this scrub is perfect for achieving that luxurious glow. Transport yourself to summertime at the beach with this coconut scent. The lemon does a great job of toning your skin, and it's anti-bacterial. The coconut oil softens the skin, as does the sugar that gently scrubs away the dead skin cells. Finally a healthy use for sugar :)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons coconut milk
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
Melt the coconut oil by putting the jar in a bowl of hot water...it doesn't take much heat to melt coconut oil.
Stir in coconut milk and sugar, mixing until the sugar is thoroughly coated. Stir in lemon juice and lemon zest until all ingredients are combined. Transfer to a glass jar.
To use, massage all over dry skin before showing. Rinse thoroughly, and cleanse.
