Or! Try this DIY scrub:
Face scrub (for dry skin)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
Directions: Warm the coconut oil to its liquid form to make mixing easier. Combine ingredients and stir.
Why it works: The honey naturally draws moisture to your skin, and the brown sugar acts as a gentle exfoliant. The coconut oil is a moisturizer with a small molecular structure, so it’s easily absorbed and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy.
