Rose sugar body scrub
Time to nurture that tired skin
Rose sugar body scrub is an excellent way to boost your skin after the spring months. The weather has been up and down, changing from hot to chilly and windy within one day. All these factors challenge the skin and make it more dry than usual. Natural ingredients body scrub is a wonderful way to remove any impurities and old cells and leave your skin fresh and glowing! The rose sugar body scrub recipe I’ll share bellow is really easy but efficient way to moisturize, exfolilate and regenerate your body. All you really need is 3 simple ingredients!
I absolutely love coconut oil as an ingredient, in the kitchen orin natural beauty products. It’s the signature scent of coconuts as well as many properties which help to take care of the skin. It hydrates, cleanses, nourishes and has antibacterial features that help to purify skin and make it glow. I’ve already gone into more depth about this in my other DIY homemade cosmetics article on honey coconut oil hair mask. You can also use the coconut oil for delicious whipped cocoa butter body butter!
Rose Body Scrub
- Coconut oil
- Rose petals (fresh)
Mix a three tbl spoons of coconut oil, add two tbl spoons of sugar (I do like to use honey instead but for this recipe the sugar works best. The granulated structure of it functions as a peeling and helps to beautifully exfoliate the skin.) and lastly a few leaves of fresh rose petals. I used a lovely pugét I didn’t want to let go of yet. But it was slowly fading away so I made use of it instead of throwing it away or drying it for decoration.
To make the peeling most efficient, clean your skin first with water to moisturize it and remove any initial impurities on the skin. Apply the scrub on the next layer of the skin where you can easily remove any dead cells. That’s why it’s good to use the scrub when you’re taking a shower or a bath.
Apply small amount of the mixture on your face or body and massage the skin using gentle circulating motion for about 3 minutes. Rinse afterwards and enjoy your silky smooth toned skin!
You can repeat this procedure weekly. The mixture is good to use for 1-2 weeks if kept in a refrigerator.
