20 days to Christmas. Yes that’s right, and if you are still wondering about Christmas gift idea then I am here to save you. A perfect last minute gift that is -personalized, quick and will be loved by everyone. How about homemade body scrub? Everyone buys body scrubs from Lush cosmetics and the body shop and pays lot of money, why not make one for yourself.
Coffee Sugar Body Scrub. Yes. No preservatives or harmful chemicals- just some ingredients from your kitchen pantry. Coffee- I chose the cheapest one. Take any coffee powder. Coffee is supposed to tighten and tone your skin. Coffee is also great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and of course the smell is to die for.
Next ingredient is sugar. I used white granulated sugar. If you have sensitive skin I would suggest that you go for brown sugar. Sugar acts as great exfoliator and removes dead skin.
Coconut oil- I used KTC cooking coconut oil. I believe that coconut oil that is suitable for cooking is the purest. When ever you scrub or exfoliate you need some moisture and coconut provides enough moisture and nourishes the skin. For, that festive touch be creative- pack in fancy bottles or monsoon jars.
1 cup coffee granulated
1 cup white sugar
5 tablespoons coconut oil
Take a mixing bowl and mix everything togather. The consistency should be like of wet sand. Not to dry and not to runny.
That’s it. Fill it any jar or bottle and you can use it .
