The past couple of weeks I’ve shared ways to combat dry skin naturally during these cold months and a few organic skincare products you can use to help your skin retain moisture. Now this Easy Sea Salt & Coconut Oil Scrub will help you exfoliate and moisturize your skin at the same time, creating your very own spa like treatment at home. I always see expensive scrubs in stores, but it’s actually really easy to make your own, costs less, and lasts longer.
Coconut Oil has a wonderful smell and it’s good for your skin. It soothes dry, itchy, irritated skin and can alleviate many common conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Sea salt gently removes dead skin cells and Coconut Oil aids in rehydration of the body. The combination of the two leaves you with smooth and soft, moisturized skin. Use the scrub liberally in the bath or shower and rinse clean.
To make this Easy Sea Salt & Coconut Oil Scrub you need:
Medium to large sized jar
About 1 1/2 cups of Sea Salt
About 1 1/2 cups of Virgin Coconut Oil
First you need to heat your Coconut Oil so that it can become a liquid. Coconut Oil is normally a solid until it reaches 75F. You can warm it in the microwave for about a minute, or on the stove top.
Here is the Coconut Oil in it’s full liquid state.
Next fill 3/4 of the jar with the Sea Salt.
Then you are going to carefully pour the Coconut Oil into the jar of Sea Salt.
Mix well and add more Sea Salt and Coconut Oil if necessary to balance out the oil to salt ratio leaving you with a beautiful Sea Salt & Coconut Oil Scrub ready to use!
