Vanilla and coconut oil body scrub

Vanilla and coconut oil body scrub

Exfoliating has always been an important step in all skin-care treatments.
If your skin has become a little rough, or has darkened due to pollution or exposure to dust, a body scrub can rejuvenate your skin by removing the rough layer and leave it soft and smooth. The basic ingredient for this body scrub recipe is coconut oil, a plant-based oil that has the property to clean away dirt and dead skin cells, giving your skin a silky texture and bright color. It is a unique substance: it is solid and white at room temperature, but melts into a clear oil with just a couple degrees of warmth.

To prepare this scrub you will need one cup of coconut oil; if the temperature is not warm, you may need to heat it up in a saucepan over low fire, stirring with a wooden spoon until it liquefies. Then, pour the liquid coconut oil into a small mixing boil, and stir the following ingredients: 2 cups of white sugar, 3 tablespoons of honey, and one tablespoon of pure vanilla extract. You can use a fork or your hands, in this case you will be also exfoliating and moisturizing them.

The combination of coconut oil with a grainy material such as sugar is perfect, because it improves the effect. Sugar is very effective as an exfoliator, and we have already talked about the moisturizing and softening properties of honey. Adding pure vanilla extract will make this sweet mixture the everything smell heavenly.

This scrub will successfully scrape off excess dead skin and clean out whatever substances have blocked the pores without leaving the skin feeling irritated. You can also transfer you mixture to pretty mason jars and give it as gifts.
