Tea Tree Body Scrub

What It Does: Body scrubs do more than remove dead skin cells – they can also moisturize dry skin and fight acne! Coconut sugar has just the right amount of coarseness to gently exfoliate the entire body, especially your heels. Jojoba oil moisturizes without clogging pores and mimics the sebum your body creates, helping to restore balance to dry skin. Tea tree oil fights acne with its antimicrobial properties.

  •  ⅓ cup coconut sugar

Almond Face Scrub for Dry Skin

What It Does: Winter can be brutal on fragile skin, causing the lips and face to become cracked and flaky. This face scrub for sensitive skin uses ground almonds to help gently exfoliate. Almonds contain vitamin E, an anti-inflammatory, calming redness and increasing moisture. Coconut oil adds an extra dose of moisture, hydrating skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Almond Face Scrub for Dry Skin

Recipe by: Jennafer Ashley

Tools

  •  Small jar
  •  Spoon to mix

Ingredients

  •  ⅓ cup ground almonds
  •  ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  •  Stir ingredients together in a small jar. After removing makeup, gently rub a quarter-sized amount onto damp face and allow to set 2 minutes. Rinse and pat skin dry to allow coconut oil to absorb into skin. Use twice a week.

Citrus Face Scrub for Oily Skin

What It Does: Oily, acne-prone skin can be frustrating and difficult to treat. This scrub uses baking soda to create a paste that exfoliates skin, absorbs excess moisture and neutralizes pH imbalances. Raw honey contains antimicrobial properties and enzymes to fight breakouts gently. The citric acid in the lemon and orange peel helps combat acne.
