DIY Chocolate Coconut Sugar Hand Scrub from Celebrity Manicurist and Owner of As U Wish Nail Salon, Skyy Hadley

This sweet and tasty scrub is perfect to revive dry hands and feet! The cocoa in this scrub is rich in antioxidants which are very beneficial to your skin. Skin is very absorbent and will draw the antioxidants from the cocoa, helping to battle free radical damage that makes it look dehydrated and dull.

Ingredients:

1 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil (in solid form)
1/3 cup almond oil
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
a few drops of coconut extract or essential oil

Directions:

Add all ingredients together in a large bowl and mix until combined. Make sure to mix enough so there are no chunks remaining. To use the scrub, simply rub it all over your hands and feet and let sit for about 5 minutes. Rinse it off using warm water and follow up with a hydrating moisturizer. Always apply a cuticle oil to keep nails looking fresh. Find a pretty jar at a craft store or use a small mason jar, put a ribbon around it and presto–you have the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for a special friend!
