Coconut Sea Salt Body Scrub

Guest author: Ariel Knapp

Good morning, everyone! It’s December in Michigan which means cold, dry air! We haven’t gotten much snow this month but (with the exception of this past weekend)Β the air has been extremely cold most days. My skin feels like all the moisture has been sucked out of it and I’m left a dried out husk. It’s a gross feeling, let me tell you. So, in an effort to combat this horrible dryness, I decided to make my favorite body scrub and wanted to share it with all of you who may be in the same boat.

First, gather your supplies:

-1 cup sea salt
-10 to 15 drops essential oil (optional)

Second, mix it all together:

Third, put the body scrub in a jar with a pretty lid:

Fourth, use the body scrubΒ in the shower:

Ha! Just kidding! I didn’t actually take shower pictures!

But seriously, this scrub is so easy to make and much less expensive than the store bought varieties. It does a great job getting rid of dry skin and an even better job keeping skin moisturized. A couple things to let you know before you try this out: use it after you shave because the oil can prevent a close shave and if you have any little cuts and scrapes the salt will sting.

I hope you try this body scrub!

Do you live in a cold climate? What tips and tricks do you have to help prevent dry skin?
