Summer’s coming. Is your skin ready? Is it nice and soft?
I bet you did too much for others during the holidays. I bet you feel a little tired and maybe you want some pampering. Well, here’s a great way to treat yourself to something lovely and relaxing.
Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub will help exfoliate your skin, because it removes dead skin cells leaving you with nice soft smooth skin.
This Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub makes a fabulous gift too! Place the sugar scrub in a pretty glass jar, like this one and you have a lovely gift. Or, a great gift to keep for yourself!
These are really simple ingredients that come together quickly.
Notes on Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub:
This Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub can be made with sugar or Kosher salt. I decided to make mine with sugar because the nice people at Dixie Crystals sent me some lovely sugar for working on the Cookies for Kid’s Cancer project. In addition, sugar granules are generally smaller and gentler than salt, which can cause microscopic tears in the skin. Also, because of sugar’s natural humectants properties, sugar scrubs tend to be more hydrating than salt scrubs.
Vitamin E oil will help reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles, so I highly recommend that you use it.
If your pipes are old or fragile, or you have a septic system, you may wish to leave the lemon zest and lavender flowers out of the sugar scrub. Or, you can place a strainer (like this one) over the drain to catch the solid pieces.
Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub with Lavender Flowers Recipe:
- Mix all ingredients together, and store in an airtight jar.
- To use: in the shower or bath, begin with wet skin using warm to hot water, which will help soften the skin. Using a damp washcloth, sponge, or your hand, apply the Lemon Coconut Sugar Scrub in a circular motion over your skin. Enjoy the softness.
I used the recipe card because I like the layout, but I don't mean for you to eat this. It's for use in the shower or bath.
