Exfoliating is one of the best things you can do for your skin. As we age our skin does not slough off dead skin cells as efficiently as it once did. Being an Aesthetician I am no stranger to glycolic peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments. In fact, I’ve had my fair share of professional exfoliation on my own skin. The results were great as long as I didn’t over do it, but the amount of chemicals I let seep deep into my pores was crazy!
Originally I made a scrub using raw organic sugar but I found that the granules were just too large. So now my recipe calls for regular sugar and good ole coconut oil! I add essential oils for added benefits. So, are you ready to exfoliate?!
Tea Tree Lavender Lemon Sugar Scrub
1 cup sugar
Mix ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a jar
It’s that easy!
Now that you’ve made your scrub be cautious-over exfoliating may seem like a good idea in the moment but you will be sorry-be gentle and only exfoliate 2-3 times a week. If your skin feels irritated stop immediately. It is best to exfoliate in the shower or right after. Hot water and steam loosen skin so gently exfoliating will go a long way!
FYI-this scrub can be used anywhere on the body! The coconut oil is so healing and leaves a layer of nourishing oil behind so it’s great for all skin!
Enjoy the glow!
