DIY Coconut Oil Face Scrub Recipe

Now that the temperatures are down in the teens and twenties every day, my skin is feeling dry.  Even worse, it's dull, which makes me look and feel worse.

DIY facial scrubs are hard to make because your facial skin is a lot more sensitive than the rest of your body.  This scrub uses brown sugar, which is much more gentle than the white sugar or salt that other DIY scrub recipes call for.

It also uses coconut oil, and my regular readers know how much I {heart} coconut oil!

DIY Coconut Oil Face Scrub Recipe


1 part coconut oil
1 part organic brown sugar


1.  Mix equal parts coconut oil and brown sugar in a bowl.  If coconut oil is too hard to stir, heat for 5-10 seconds in the microwave to soften.  Let cool completely before using.
2.  Gently scrub your face with a few teaspoons of product to slough off dead skin cells.
3.  Rinse well.

You can make as much or as little as you want.  Store in a mason jar or other jar with a lid.  Since this recipe doesn't have water, it doesn't need a preservative.

You can use this scrub all over your body.  It works very well on your hands and feet, too!
