When we came across Melissa Quin of SkinnyAffair.com‘s Sea Salt and Shea Butter Body Scrub recipe, we just had to share it with you. It smells uh-mazing, exfoliates, and leaves skin super moisturized. “I’m obsessed with DIY beauty recipes — especially when they call for natural and pure ingredients,” Melissa says. And it’s super easy to make at home, as it contains only three basic ingredients: Shea butter, coconut oil, and sea salt.
“I use this body scrub once a week in the shower,” relays Melissa. “I apply it on my skin gently then wash it off. When I get out of the shower, I moisturize right away. And there you have it! Silky, smooth, and hydrated skin.”
So what are you waiting for? Grab the ingredients and get to DIY work. You’ll be on your way to soft, sexy skin in no time.
1 part Out of Africa Lavender Pure Shea Butter
1 part coconut oil
3 to 4 parts fine ground sea salt
1. Using your spoon, place 1 part shea butter and 1 part coconut oil on the plate. “I used Out of Africa’s Lavender Pure Shea Butter. It’s 100% pure, unrefined, and is hand harvested in Africa,” says Melissa. “I picked lavender because it adds a nice scent and in aromatherapy, lavender is relaxing and calming.”
2. Add 3 to 4 parts sea salt to the plate and slowly start to mix the ingredients together. “We’ve all heard so much about the skin benefits of coconut oil,” she says. “So, I love pairing coconut oil with shea butter. I like to think it adds even more benefits. Why sea salt? We all know about how I love using natural exfoliants to brush away dead skin.”
3. Carefully transfer all 3 ingredients to the jar and thoroughly mix everything together to finish.
