Glowing Skin with a Coconut Oil and Sugar Scrub

Glowing Skin with a Coconut Oil and Sugar Scrub

Did you know that skin is an organ?  In fact, it is one of the largest organs in the body that helps to detoxify our cells.  Healthy skin starts from the inside by getting adequate hydration and adding wild-caught fish into your diet.  Processed foods and stress may worsen skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea and it is important to minimize these to attain beautiful skin.
By getting adequate amount of sleep and regular physical activity to encourage sweating, you will be on your way to healthier skin. You can also consider adding dry skin brushing into your daily routine or a weekly DIY Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub.

The reason why I love this recipe is because it is all natural, simple to make, inexpensive and not to mention the amazingly glowing skin it leaves behind!

Coconut oil is naturally moisturizing as it penetrates the skin on a deeper level, leaving your skin healthy, smooth and evenly toned.  It was shown to reduce symptoms of eczema by 30% over 8 weeks of topical use.  Coconut oil also has anti-fungal activity against yeast and anti-microbial effects.

Brown sugar may get a bad rap in sweets, but it is great as a skin exfoliant.  Exfoliating about once a week prevents your skin from looking dull and clears up clogged pores.  Brown sugar is also a natural humectant so it keeps moisture locked in.  To enhance coconut oil’s natural anti-bacterial properties, brown sugar contains glycolic acid that helps to fight bacteria.
