When it comes to my skin, I follow two simple principles that my great-grandmother, Nana, drilled into my brain when I was probably 9 years old-
1. ALWAYS wash your makeup off no matter what
2. ALWAYS moisturize your face & neck (necks are one of the first places to show signs of aging)
Coconut oil is my ride-or-die and I use it for everything- my hair, skin, nails, and I take a small amount of it every day in my coffee. I even use it on my dog's coat! This scrub calls for brown sugar- I've used white sugar and "raw" sugar, and they work but I've found that brown sugar has the right texture I'm looking for to properly exfoliate my skin. I've even used coconut sugar- which also works, but it dissolves a lot faster, so if you go that route, make sure to use the scrub immediately.
There is nothing better than waking up in the morning with glowing skin. I've been making this scrub for years and I swear by it. I've tried all sorts of fancy, expensive face masks and scrubs, but nothing gives my skin a glow like this scrub does. And the good thing is, it's only 2 ingredients-and you probably already have them in your pantry!
1 Part Coconut Oil
2 Parts Brown Sugar
