It’s time to get your skin ready to face the summer months. After the cold season, dry skin needs moisturizing. Our favorite expert is the coconut oil. Mixed with grapefruit, this oil is a good addition to any mask, much cheaper than those found in stores.
The ingredients needed for this sugar-based and grapefruit scrub are: 1/3 cup of coconut oil, 12 drops of grapefruit oil, 2 teaspoons of almond oil and 1 cup of granulated sugar. Soften the coconut oil in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Add the grapefruit and the almond oil and mix. Finally, add sugar and mix.
If you take care of it properly, it can last up to a month. To do this, place the mixture in a glass jar with a tight lid.
How to use
Coconut oil solidifies slightly but will return to its soft texture when’ll make contact with your palms. To use it, massage gently in a circular motion all over your body while you’re taking a bath. This will help remove dead skin cells, will improve circulation and will moisturize the skin.
