Why: Vargas explains that the coconut oil in this body scrub soothes and hydrates while also getting rid of inflammation. The sugar, unlike salt, hydrates skin while exfoliating. "High levels of polyphenols in matcha help to increase skin cell growth, and the more collagen production your skin has, the more firm and healthy it will be," she explains. "Adding a tiny bit of honey helps to make this scrub exfoliate and deeply moisturize at the same time."
What You Need:
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup of brown or white sugar
- 1 tablespoon of organic matcha powder
- 1 teaspoon organic honey
Directions: Combine sugar with matcha, then add honey and melted coconut oil and stir until everything is mixed well. Store in a sealed mason jar and place in your shower for up to two weeks. After cleansing your skin, gently exfoliate with the scrub and then rinse. Vargas recommends using this every other day to reveal healthy, soft skin.
