Coconut Sugar Face Scrub

Hello! How is everyone? The boy and I have returned from our baby swim class and he is now wearing nothing but a diaper, using a bottle as a teether and not napping. But he sure is cute. 

I've been feeling a little stressed at moments lately. I think I have been trying to do too many things at once. In the past that was fine, I managed to do multiple things and keep sanity. That's how I functioned. But now I just can't anymore. 

I decided to take a few minutes a few weeks ago and treat myself to a homemade face scrub. I think this has changed my life. 

Some ladies at the gym were talking about how they put coconut oil on their face. I just put coconut oil in cakes! So I decided to try this out. 

I found a jar online for $40. Seriously? $40??? What is wrong with you? It's sugar and coconut oil. You could make a jar for less than a buck!

At any rate. I took a baby food jar and put in two spoonfuls (big soup spoonfuls) of coconut oil. Then I added a couple tables spoons regular refined white sugar. 

Then I scrubbed my face with it. Magic! It left my skin soft and smooth and not the least bit oil and I didn't have to put on moisturizer. It is said to have vitamins A,B,C and E in it and is a natural antioxidant. Who knows? It smelled good. 

Note: My household is trying to get off sugar. And I did have to fight the urge to lick my own face. 

Don't forget to head over to Romance on A Dime for Take it On Tuesday. There are always some great ideas over there. And be sure to check out other blogs and leave comments.
