Whether you're the biggest bodybuilder, or a slim marathoner, your skin is important. Keeping your skin hydrated is essential in the winter months. For my bodybuilding readers out there; keeping your skin hydrated can also help minimize or even prevent stretch marks from getting HUGE.
This simple, CHEAP, and easy body scrub is a great way to keep your skin feeling like a million bucks! The coconut oil will help hold in moisture, the sugar will exfoliate, and the rooibos provides a whole bunch of benefits!
What is rooibos tea you ask? Rooibos tea is a needle from the South African Red Bush. It's known for being caffeine free, and having a naturally sweet taste. Rooibos is also know for helping eczema and acne sufferers, and has anti aging effects. I'M STAYING YOUNG FOREVER.
What you'll need:
- 1 cup of white table sugar
- 2 tbsp of rooibos tea
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
What you'll do:
Start by heating up the oil in a sauce pan on the lowest heat setting. Once the oil liquified, mix in the tea and the sugar. let cool, and you're done! Clean-up included, it takes about 5 minutes.NOTE:
You don't need a lot of heat, the oil will liquify around 25°C (76°F).
After your normal shower routine, simply rub this stuff all over your body, and rinse. You'll immediately feel the moisture and see water bead up (Just like when you wax your car!). If you have dry hands, use it after you wash your hands to keep them nice and moist! It's even a delicious (extremely fatty, and sugary) snack. SCB does not recommend the incorporation of this scrub into your diet. Just your shower.
