Sister & Co. beauty: Grapefruit & brown sugar face scrub


This scrub looks, smells and feels great and works to deeply yet gently exfoliate, moisturise and soften your skin. Soft dark brown sugar is slightly gentler on the skin than salt, which is why we recommend this for the face, and a sea salt scrub for the body (see our separate recipe for this). The essential oil is optional but will make it smell fresh and delicious. 

All you need:

1 tbsp raw soft dark brown sugar
1 tsp of extra virgin coconut oil (more if needed) 
10-15 drops of organic grapefruit essential oil (lemon and orange also work well.)

All you need to do:

Place the brown sugar in palm of hand (or you can use small bowl). Add the coconut oil and essential oil to create a paste. You can add more of any ingredient if needed. Gently massage into your skin in a circular motion for 2-3 minutes. Rinse off with using warm water and pat dry with a warm facecloth. Follow with moisturiser if your skin still needs it - but the coconut oil should have worked its magic!
