It doesn’t take much to really nourish your skin and it’s a powerful practice in reducing anxiety. Your skin is a system of the body called the Integumentary System and needs care just as much as the inside of your body.
I keep this do-it-yourself (DIY) scrub in the shower for when my skin is calling for attention. Today was one of those days. I had lizard legs this morning, so I reached for this scrub.
Take care of the skin you’re in, save money, and make use of something that would otherwise go to the compost or trash. Trifecta!
DIY Body Scrub
1/4 C organic coconut oil
1/4 C sugar
1/4 C coffee grounds
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
A small jar or container with a lid (I use a small plastic container since I leave it in the shower and wouldn’t want broken glass). Also, note, the coconut oil will make the floor of the shower slippery, so please be careful.
AND, it smells and works great!
