Chocolate and smooth skin, two things every woman loves and two things you’ll enjoy from this all natural sugar scrub recipe! Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and to help you with your beauty prep this year we’ve decided to share some indulgent superfood infused beauty recipes.
Superfoods aren’t only for nourishing your insides but your outsides too. Lucky this scrub is completely edible too because it smells so SO good. All you’ll need is four ingredients to create this luxe body scrub which will leave your skin silky smooth. The star ingredient which makes this amazing scrub smell and taste irresistible is our Certified Organic Cacao Powder. Rich in antioxidants, our cacao powder is a great addition for fresh and younger looking skin!
We’ve also added coconut sugar, which makes the perfect exfoliator to help the formation of healthy and glowing skin! Coconut oil is another goodie in the scrub which leaves the skin feeling supple and well hydrated after a good scrub.
The best way to use this scrub is taking it in the shower with you and to exfoliate the body whilst skin is dry. Allow it to sit for at least 5 minutes before rinsing it off for best results. Store the remaining scrub in a mason jar or sealable glass container in a cool dry place or in the fridge. Use this mouth-watering body scrub whenever your skin feels in need of a little pampering. P.S if you would like a more coarse scrub swap the coconut sugar for raw sugar.
