Every winter it is the same, my skin starts to take on a dull appearance and sometimes has little dry patches here and there that just don’t look so great. So, here is my new fix for winter skin. Funny thing is that with just 3 ingredients…it is easy, fast and tastes great if it drizzles down your lips while you are using it!
2T coconut oil (solid at room temp)
!/2 cup raw cane sugar (it is much more course)
2-3 drops peppermint essential oil
That’s it! I just mixed it up and store it in a small mason jar to use as needed (usually 1-2 times a week). Just go easy as you do not have to scrub hard, the sugar crystals do most of the work. I do cleanse after the scrub or the coconut oil can leave a film on your face, but it is very moisturizing!
Please note when making this scrub. I used a very high quality essential oil. Do not make this with a health food store grade essential oil as you will likely find a skin sensitivity issue (many of the less costly oils are cut with synthetic ingredients that can cause skin irritation).
