As the weather seems to be heading to the autumn season here in Pretoria (alothough it’s still quite warm in the day), my skin is already acting like we are in winter mode! Dry skin season has approached! I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that it adjusting their skincare routines and I can just imagine how much worse it is going to be when actual winter hits us all.
The best way that I keep my skin soft and nourished, is using a body scrub. I use it about once a week but I feel I might up it to about 3 times a week to ensure my skin is taken care of this winter.
I’ve been using the Coconut Connection Coconut Oil Body Scrub from Faithful To Nature and its been a great help so far. Made with organic coconut oil and organic sugar, it’s any glam green girl’s dream body scrub!
We all know that coconut oil has magical unicorn powers and it’s so healing and beneficial to us all but did you know just how good it is for your body? Its packed with beneficial fatty acids; Vitamin E; helps repair skin; locks in moisture and since it has such great antioxidant properties, it helps prevent premature aging of the skin. Add a bit of organic sugar and you have the perfect exfoliator.
I do recommend purchasing this in the “cooler” months as coconut oil ‘melts’ in warmer weather. So it’s easier to work with when it’s slightly thicker as seen below in the photo.
