I’m hopping on a plane today (yippeee) for a special shoot in the sun, which means that it’s important for my skin to be looking the best that it can. Not only that, but I really don’t want to be peeling as soon as I arrive home. The best way to soften, smooth and prep my skin for the sun? Body scrub!
Yesterday was a huge rush and when I came to scrub I realised that I didn’t actually have any to hand. There was little time to go to the shops so I decided to use a little DIY and it actually turned out to be rather great (and really easy)…
If you’ve seen my homemade cocktail video (feel free to click right here if not) you’ll know that I’m no DIY pro. Yet, as disasterous as the process usually is, the results tend to be pretty good! There were no mishaps here, even with my track record and it was as simple as one, two, scrub!
All you need to do is…
1. Grab a dollop of raw coconut oil and a proportionate amount of Himalayan sea salt- a tea spoon should be enough.
2. Mix together.
3. Apply to skin and rub in circular motions.
4. Rinse off.
Your skin will be left smooth, flake free and super soft. You can even feel the coconut oil working its moisturising magic for a couple of hours after getting out of the shower! A natural body scrub that your skin will thank you for.
Give it a go and let me know what you think! x
