Combats: Dull skin

Do you want to get rid of dull skin? Give this homemade body scrub a try to get bright and dewy skin in no time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • ½ cup coconut oil

Directions:

  • Take white sugar and raw sugar in a big bowl
  • Add coconut oil and olive oil to the bowl
  • Mix well

Benefits: 

White and raw sugar: These are a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy               acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the binding between skin cells. Thus, it easily removes the dead skin cells and leaves you with radiant and younger-looking skin.

Coconut oil: It hydrates your skin as it contains medium-chain fatty acids that help to reduce dryness and allow your skin to retain moisture. It also has a soothing, calming effect on your skin.

Olive oil: It is loaded with vitamins, including vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K, and vitamin E. It hydrates your skin and also has anti-microbial properties.

Combats: Cellulite and uneven skin tone

If you want to minimise the appearance of cellulite, you should immediately whip up this homemade body scrub. 

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup fresh coffee grounds
  • ¼ cup finely ground salt
  • ¼ cup almond oil

Directions:

  • Take fresh coffee grounds and finely ground salt. Mix in a bowl.
  • Add almond oil to this mixture
  • Mix well

Benefits: 

Coffee: The caffeine content in coffee reduces the appearance of cellulite by dilating the blood vessels and improving blood flow. Due to chlorogenic acid present in coffee, it also has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.

Salt: Salt is a natural exfoliant that gently sloughs off dead skin cells.  

Almond oil: Almond oil has vitamin A. The retinol present in vitamin A stimulates the production of new skin cells and prevents fine lines. It also has vitamin E that prevents cell damage and minimises UV damage caused by the sun.
