Rose Hibiscus Sugar Body Scrub
Polyethylene based micro-beads, the tiny micro-beads used in most common facial exfoliators, are non-biodegradable. This means every time we use these products and wash the micro-beads down our drains, the plastic micro-beads end up in our waterways where they don’t break down. They end up accumulating and causing harm to the ecosystems. The Micro-Bead Free Water Act of 2015 has banned the use of these plastic micro-beads in the United States starting July 1, 2017, but there is no time like the present to cut these detrimental products from your beauty routine. Sugar-based body scrubs are an easy-to-make alternative to plastic micro-bead products.
This Rose Hibiscus Sugar Body Scrub is not only easy to make, but leaves your skin feeling smooth & moisturized. I like using it about once a week on my face as well as my legs and other dry spots. The coconut oil leaves your skin feeling divine, but make sure to really rinse it all off as it can sometimes clog pores if left on.
- 1 heaping tablespoon organic virgin coconut oil
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon red Himalayan salt
- 5 sprays rose water
- 5 sprays hibiscus water
- Using your fingers, mix the coconut oil, sugar, salt together until well blended.
- Add rose & hibiscus water and continue to mix using your fingers.
- On a clean, damp face (or other body part), use your fingers to gently rub the rose hibiscus sugar body scrub across your skin focusing on dry patches.
- Once well rubbed in, allow the sugar scrub to rest on your skin for two minutes before washing off with warm water.
- Your rose hibiscus sugar body scrub and be saved in an air tight jar for several weeks.
