Hello Kings and Queens,
Don’t you sometimes want to scrub away the frustration from a long week and have an at home spa day ?
Me too ! In fact, I make it my business to reserve time for self wellness and down time at least once a week. Unplugging is essential to a balanced life and it can really help recharge you mentally.
At home spa days are an awesome way to recharge especially when you don’t have time or funds to visit the spa of your choice. Because let’s face it, going to the spa once a week disrupts the coins… So lets try and make that habit once a month.
But in between time below is a recipe for a body scrub that will leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed while GLOWING !!!
I swear by this. It’s natural, organic and made with ingredients most likely in your kitchen !!!
- 2 cups of brown sugar
- 1/2 of grounded coffee beans
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1/4 of olive oil
- 1/4 coconut oil
Mix dry ingredients first, then add wet ingredients stirring until it’s a consistent mixture.
The dry ingredients will make it a very rough consistency which is responsible for exfoliating the skin. This will help remove the outer layer of dead skin cells that our bodies naturally shed leaving it silky smooth. The lemon will help skin absorb vitamin C and serve as an acidic natural skin brighter, for those hyper-pigmented areas. Plus lemons are antibacterial and they can help treat acne. The coconut oil and olive oil will restore the moisture that’s being stripped from the exfoliation, and this is what helps add that healthy glow.
If you have leftovers put a top on it and leave it in your shower. It should last at least one week. Or sit it by the sink and use on hands daily after washing.
I hope y’all enjoy. Please leave questions or comments below and tell me how you like it or what you would’ve done differently.
