I like to try new scrubs as often as I can. One of my newest resolutions is to try a new scrub each week.
Until now I was able to keep it…but let’s see how long I will be able to do so.
For this weekend I wanted to try a simple and gentle scrub I wanted to make for a while now. As I had all the ingredients in my kitchen I start working.
The scrub is based on 3 ingredients: coconut, lime and sugar. This is way I choose to call it coconut lime scrub.
You will need the following ingredients
- 1 ½ cup sugar;
- ¼ cup coconut oil;
- 2 limes – you will need the zest ( 3-4 teaspoons) and the juice (4-5 teaspoons).
Using a grater, grate the limes until you obtained about 3 teaspoons of zest. Then juice the limes until you obtain about 4-5 teaspoons of lime juice.
The next step consist in mixing all 3 ingredients together until everything is well incorporated.
Like for any homemade product, feel free to adjust the quantities you use. For example, I choose to use a little bit more sugar as I wanted my coconut lime scrub to be a bit more exfoliating. If you want to make a mild scrub then use less sugar. The same with the coconut oil – adjust the quantity as per your needs.
This scrub can be used only for your hands, or for your feet. But also you can use it for a full body scrub like I did.
It smells delicious and will make your skin look perfect.
