Hydrating cucumber and cooling mint bring soothing and inflammation-quelling properties to this homemade DIY body exfoliator. The fine grains of sugar help shed dry skin, and skin-quenching coconut oil sweeps in to give a supple glow that lasts even after washing. While the scrub is completely edible, we don't recommend actually eating it. Source: EatingWell.com, June 2018

  • Apply to clean, damp skin using circular motions to exfoliate the skin. Rinse off completely, then towel dry. Moisturize as desired.

Tips

To make ahead: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week. The coconut oil will harden in the fridge; bring scrub to room temperature before using.
