DIY Microderm Abrasion
1 large tablespoon softened (not liquid) Coconut Oil
1 large tablespoon Baking Soda
1-3 drops Carrot Seed essential oil, optional
3-5 drops Lavender essential oil, optional
Blend together in a glass or ceramic bowl- wood or plastic will absorb oils. When you have a smooth paste, gently apply to skin.
Exfoliate your face at the bathroom mirror, avoiding extra delicate eye and lip skin.
Then step into your shower or tub and exfoliate arms and legs. If your shower is like mine, carefully step back out, being sure not to slip, and start your shower water. Once water temperature is adjusted, re-enter and shower away.
The floor will be SLIPPERY so move carefully, and consider bringing a scrub brush with you. Once you've washed off your coconut oil/baking soda, take a minute with a squirt of soap to scrub the floor and the soles of your feet.
Voila! Your skin is baby-butt-smooth, your shower is clean, and you're ready to take on anything. Happy day, Beautiful Introvert!
