Get a healthy glow with our homemade exfoliating body scrub recipe
Most beauty products are full of ingredients that you can’t recognize yet alone even pronounce. That’s why for this recipe, we raided the kitchen cupboards for ingredients you’ve heard of, to mix with our activated charcoal powder in this detox exfoliating body scrub.
We took organic granulated sugar and organic virgin coconut oil and mixed it with Organika® Activated Charcoal Powder for the perfect homemade exfoliant.
Now, we know that beautiful skin comes more from the inside than it does the outside, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of the outside as well. As our skin cells turnover, the top layer skins cells die. Without exfoliation, dead skin cells can block your pores and dull the appearance of your skin.
Exfoliating gently removes dead skin cell debris to speed healthy skin turnover, prevent breakouts and brighten your skin for that healthy glow we’re all after.
Homemade Exfoliating Body Scrub with Activated Charcoal
- 1/2 cup Organic granulated cane sugar
- 1/8 cup Organika® Virgin Coconut Oil (you can also use organic olive oil)
- 1 tbsp Organika® Activated Charcoal Powder
- Optional – essential oils for scent
- Add the sugar, coconut oil and activated charcoal to a bowl and mix until fully combined
- Transfer to a jar for use and storing
Massage onto the body (avoiding the face) in the shower for approximately 15 seconds. Rinse under warm water gently using a loofa or clothe to remove any excess scrub.
Caution: Activated Charcoal can be a bit messy, so make sure you rinse away any residual charcoal residue in your shower directly after use. Activated charcoal does have the potential to stain fabric, so avoid using light coloured clothes or loofas that you’re concerned about staining!
