Have Softer, Smoother Skin with This DIY Coconut Body Scrub

One of the top ingredients in natural or DIY acne skin care products is coconut. This is because when you get it in its natural or organic form, it is very gentle on your skin, but provides a lot of excellent dermatological benefits. Here are some reasons to use coconut and how to make your own face scrub.

Coconut Has Excellent Nutrients

When you start looking at DIY recipes for skin care products and masks, or you decide to buy over-the-counter natural skin care products, you will notice that coconut is often included in them. This is often coconut oil, but some of them also use coconut milk. The reason coconut is a major ingredient is because of how healthy it is for you. Coconut helps you in so many ways, including making your hair shiny, helping clean your teeth, moisturizing your skin, and hydrating your body. It can also help with your acne. Coconut first has fatty acids, but a good kind. It has antimicrobials, which are going to help remove the bacteria that cause acne in the first place. Another important nutrient in coconut is vitamin E, which can also help to clear blocked sebum glands and improve your skin’s overall appearance.

It is an Anti-Inflammatory

Coconut also happens to be a natural anti-inflammatory, which means it can help reduce the inflammation in your skin. Adult acne is often linked to excessive inflammation, so this can help clear up the breakouts and reduce the problem in the future. Coconut oil especially can penetrate deeply into your skin layers, so if you keep using products with coconut oil, you won’t have a big problem with acne in the future.

Making Your Own Coconut Scrub

If you are going to make your own acne skin care products with coconut, you first want to choose virgin coconut oil. This is in its natural form, so it doesn’t contain any additives or artificial ingredients. Since exfoliating your skin is important when trying to get rid of adult acne, making a scrub with coconut oil is an excellent option.

If you want to make your own scrub, start by getting the right type of coconut oil. You then want to heat it up over low heat so that it is in a thinner form that is easier to work with. Use salt or brown sugar as the scrubbing agent, combining it with coconut oil until it becomes a paste that you can scrub on your face. You can also add some essential oils if you like.

In conclusion, coconut is a powerful ingredient to incorporate into your skincare routine, especially when dealing with acne. Its abundance of nutrients, such as fatty acids and vitamin E, can help improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. Additionally, coconut's anti-inflammatory properties work wonders in reducing inflammation associated with adult acne.

To maximize the benefits of coconut, consider making your own DIY coconut scrub. Opt for virgin coconut oil, as it is in its natural form without any additives. By combining it with a scrubbing agent like salt or brown sugar, you can create a paste that effectively exfoliates your skin. Adding essential oils, such as rose organic oil, can enhance the experience and provide additional benefits.
