Sometimes I have the most random natural skin care ideas in my head… I was thinking about a body scrub the other day. The spring is finally here and it’s warmer and sunnier. Soon enough it will be the flip-flop, shorts and t-shirt season! We still have some time to get ready and here is one random DIY body scrub I thought of a few days ago. It’s quick to make, easy to use and feels very nice. And, I think, it’s my new favourite!
you will need approximately:
20g ground rice
40g coconut oil
The amounts can vary, you can put more/less coconut oil, the same with the honey, just see what works best for you. Gently mix the ingredients until you form a smooth paste.
Massage the scrub into your skin. Exfoliate for a few minutes. The coconut oil will nicely melt and moisturise while honey sloughs off dead skin cells leaving your skin soft and fresh. Wash the exfoliator off and enjoy your evening or morning!
You can use salt or sugar instead of ground rice, feel free to experiment. You can also add a drop or two of your favourite essential oil or mix in fresh strawberries. That should work extremely well here. Your scrub will smell like summer!
This exfoliator is very gentle. If you want it to be slightly rougher, just soak the rice in water and then grind them.
