DIY: Organic Facial Scrub


I've had the pleasure of having a facial at one of the finest spas in the world, but let me tell you,  NOTHING and I do mean nothing, beats the simple facial scrub recipe I am about to give you. I'm serious folks....you can thank me later after you try it. It'll leave your skin glowing and feeling silky smooth. As added bonuses the mixture is easy to make, cheap, and organic. So here's what you need to do to make a small batch:

  • Mix 1 tbsp of melted coconut oil with 2 tbsps of pink himalayan sea salt (I get this at Homegoods)

Yep, that's it. After applying it to your face and lips rinse with warm water and wipe clean with a dry towel. Sea salt is rather abrasive, so only exfoliate up to once a week. Now go pamper yourselves!

    1. Gam, I'm a recent convert to coconut oil. I can't believe how useful it is.

  4. I have sensitive skin so anything unperfumed is vital. I'm giving it a try. It would be perfect for my poor, tired feet : ))
