- moisturizer

STEP 1: Whip your hair up into a secure pony. 

STEP 2: Wash yo face, girl! We need a clean surface to get the party started.

STEP 3: Create your 1:1 ratio of coconut oil to granulated white sugar. Don't melt your coconut oil prior to mixing, as it will melt the sugar and defeat the purpose of a "scrub".

STEP 4: Scrub a dub dub. Not too hard! Be gentle with your scrubbing using the tips of your fingers to avoid irritation.

STEP 5: Wash your face with warm water! Towel dry, making sure to pat your face and NOT rub, to avoid irritation. 

 
 

STEP 6: Add some zest to your scrub - orange, lime, or in my case, lemon! Only use the scrub with the added lemon to your body. As you could probably guess, lemon in the eyes is as our friends south of the border say "no bueno"!

STEP 7: MOISTURIZE! MOISTURIZE! MOISTURIZE THAT FACE AND BODY! Lock in your new soft and glowing skin!

 

The very best,
