Natural Beauty: Moisturizing Body Exfoliator
August 3rd, 2014
This little bowl might not look like much but it’s contents is amazing! This moisturising exfoliator is my favourite natural beauty product – it honestly makes your skin happier than anything else, which is so perfect for summer. I use a mixture of sugar and oats to create the scrub. They work so well together as the sugar is quite course and a little tougher on skin, while the oats are gentler on the skin and so stop it from getting irritated. I mix the sugar and oats with some coconut oil and apple cider vinegar, as they both work to smooth, soften and moisturise the skin while you scrub so that your whole body looks and feels deliciously soft after you use this.
For an all body exfoliation
– 6 tablespoons of granulated sugar
– 4 tablespoons of oats
– 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
– 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
Simply mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. When you’re in the shower wash your skin then turn the water off, rub this all over your skin and then rinse off and feel awesome! I try to do it once a week to keep my skin happy, and it’s best to use the exfoliated as soon as you make it – otherwise it gets a little dry as the oats absorb all the liquid. I do use this on my face too, just be gentle as it’s quite an intense scrub!
