Going green is not only healthy & better for the environment, it’s also fun and creative. Believe it or not, you can throw a few non-toxic ingredients together and create amazing beauty products right at home. At least once a week I use my go-to DIY detox scrub made with simple ingredients. It’s important to detox your body as well as your skin.
Because our body is in constant contact with toxins and environmental elements that are damaging to our skin, it is essential that we have a skincare regime that includes detoxing, moisturizing and restoring collagen and cells.
Activated Charcoal is an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal that removes toxins from the skin. It cleanses dirt, pollution and dead cells. It is also great for detoxing the body.
Coconut Sugar is amazing for exfoliating the skin. Together with coconut oil and charcoal, it will leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated.
Coconut Oil is an essential staple for your kitchen and bathroom. Because of it’s anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, it helps pull toxins from your skin leaving it super soft and hydrated. Coconut oil is also amazing for oil pulling.Here’s a simple recipe for my detox face scrub:
- 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
- 1 tbs coconut sugar
- 1/4 tsp activated charcoal powder
- Eco-friendly glass makeup jar
- add ingredients to a mini glass prep bowl
- mix well and add to glass makeup jar
Easy breezy and fun to make! I can’t express how great it feels to create your own skincare with ingredients that you know are safe for you and the environment. Have fun with it and let me know what you think!
Cheers to your best life!
