Coconut lime is a pretty sweet combination no matter how you prepare it. And today, I prepared it as a sugar scrub!
A sugar scrub is the BEST pick me up your skin can get if you’ve been neglecting it or if it feels rough.
And when you’re living a hectic life and running errands like I do, any quick fixes to things like your skin can be so worth it.
A lime and sugar scrub can be great for acne prone skin if you use it gently and sparingly because you definitely don’t want to irritate your skin. I find that it helps prevent future clogged pores by helping to gently remove dead skin cells.
I think a citrus sugar scrub and a coconut sugar scrub are a pretty healthy combination for your skin because they’re both ingredients that are great for your skin (though to be safe you should always try your sugar scrub on a small skin area first to make sure you don’t have any off reactions to it).
Keep in mind this sugar scrub can be used as a body scrub too, not just as a face or lip scrub.
Also, don’t be afraid of playing with your sugar scrubs to get the consistency that’s right for you.
Unlike food recipes, you won’t completely ruin your scrub if you add too much of something. You can simply add more sugar or honey or coconut oil if you don’t like the consistency.
Below I provide a general coconut lime sugar recipe you can follow.
How to make coconut lime sugar scrub
When you make your sugar scrub you want to make sure you keep it in a clean container. I personally like using mason jars of all kinds. There are a ton of different options out there and if you’re an avid sugar scrub maker like me, you probably want to keep a few around that you can just grab and go!
How long does this coconut lime sugar scrub last?
