These are the ingredients of smooth skin

Let’s save some coins and make a homemade body scrub from ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.


Coco, Sugar, Honey


Grab your honey, sugar (preferably brown sugar), coconut oil, and a small bowl.


1. Scoop a few spoonfuls of your honey into a bowl and warm it up for a few seconds in the microwave

2. Add a few spoonfuls of your coconut oil

3. Add sugar -- how abrasive you want this is up to you, so keep that in mind when adding in your sugar


Now that you’ve got your mix, hop in the shower and scrub a dub dub.


Smooth skin doesn't come from just a body scrub -- so don’t click out just yet.


When you’re out of the shower try not to rub your skin dry, you might irritate it. Pat your skin to absorb the dripping water but leave some water droplets and moisture behind. Why? Well, a moisturizer is most effective on moist skin. So do your best not to skip this step.


Since we’re talking homemade -- let’s use a home found moisturizer. Lather up with that coconut oil and call it a day!
