Face: Coconut and Sugar Facial Polish
Buff away dead skin cells with this soothing skincare treat. Mix 3 tablespoons of white sugar with 1 tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil. Splash clean skin with water and gently massage the mixture onto your face in circular motions. Do not scrub. Rinse and pat dry.
Body: Papaya Body Peel
Unleash your glow with this one-trick wonder. Peel and discard seeds of one papaya, cut into chunks and blend in a food processor until smooth. In the shower, use a bristle brush to lightly exfoliate. Apply body mask and leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse off and follow with a light body lotion. If you’re going out in the sun, apply sunscreen because your skin will be more sensitive.
Hair: Avocado Hair Mask
Nourish dry hair with this moisture-rich, two-ingredient hair treatment. Mash up one ripe avocado with 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a bowl. Use an eclectic mixer to whip the mixture until creamy. Shampoo hair, squeeze out extra water and apply mask from roots to ends. Cover hair with a shower cap and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse and follow with a light conditioner.
Feet: Minty Sea Salt Scrub
Soothe tired, dry feet with a minty sea salt treat. Mix 1/4 cup olive oil with two tablespoons coarse grain sea salt crystals. Add 1 tablespoon of of chopped fresh mint. Massage onto feet and ankles. Rinse and dry feet well to remove any slippery residue.
