The Perfect Body Exfoliator to Help With Acne

There’s so many recipes for body scrubs but I’ve created my own little recipe that’s perfect for cleansing your body from all the sweat and bacteria collected throughout the end. And if you suffer from body acne or excessive sweating I suggest giving this a try. I love to use this after an intense workout or a really hot day to help my pores breathe some more and get rid of all that bacteria we don’t want clogging them up!

What You’ll Need

  • A cup or two of brown sugar (depending how much you want to make, usually I make enough to last me about a week)
  • About a two table spoons of honey (depends on how much you are making)
  • 1 Teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 Teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon of coconut oil
  • Half a lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • Vanilla extract (optional)
  • Storage jar (optional)

How Each Ingredient Is Beneficial For The Skin

Brown Sugar

  • Hydrates the skin and works as a natural exfoliator. Also helps keep the skin look and feel fresh

Honey

  • Helps with eczema and acne

Sea Salt

  • Works as exfoliator and helps improve the texture of the skin, helps fight acne

Olive Oil

  • Acts as an antiaging moisturizer

Coconut Oil

  • Helps with extreme dry skin and is a perfect cleanser on it’s own

Lemon

  • Is an acid that helps clear acne/bacteria on the skin

Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Perfect for those who have oily skin, helps with acne

 

What to do

Well, it’s pretty clear what you will be doing and that is mixing up all the ingredients. Of course you’re not putting in a half lemon in there but you’re going to want to squeeze out the juice and really mix it very well. If you’re finding that it’s too liquidly try putting in a bit more sugar! Also, don’t worry if it still seems to liquidly it’s because of all the ingredients used.

Keep in mind…

Keep in mind that some of the ingredients used are acidic, can be drying and is also an exfoliator. You do not want to use this everyday. Try two times a week three at most! Let me know how you like this recipe! 🙂
