Coconut Oil and Sugar Body Scrub

A luxurious, nourishing and softening scrub is the perfect remedy for dry hands and feet, especially in the fall and winter months. While many lovely high-priced brands are available in stores, I often use a homemade version that is just as effective with two ingredients from my kitchen:

– Coconut oil, a soothing moisturizer, and

– Cane sugar granules, which are exfoliating and less drying than salt, a popular ingredient in store-bought scrubs

I prefer natural products with a few simple ingredients, especially when I am pregnant and looking for a beauty regime that is safe for my little one.

To make the scrub, mix one tablespoon coconut oil and one tablespoon granulated cane sugar in a small bowl. Apply liberally to hands and feet. Scrub, scrub. Rinse hands and feet with warm water and pat dry with a towel. Voile!
