First up is an amazing mint scrub. To create, all you need is half a cup of coconut oil, one cup of sugar, one tablespoon of peppermint extract and a few drops of red food coloring for a fun look, but that’s totally optional. A scrub like this is good to brighten and remove dull skin.
Next, a coconut polish that will also exfoliate the skin and clean out your pores. Start with half a cup of coconut oil and half a cup of baking soda. Use a honeycomb to mash it together, and that’s all. You’ll use this once or twice a week on your skin and body.
And finally, after working up a sweat, give this DIY deodorant a try. You’ll need 1/8 cup, one capsule of vitamin e oil, 10 drops of grapefruit seed tract, 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of arrowroot powder. Mash it up into a paste, and that’s it.
