Exfoliating for Dummies ;)

Okay so here's a quick tip for you Dolls, since I know that if we never agree on anything else I will stake anything on the fact that every Doll covets clear, beautiful skin.

So do you need to exfoliate but you have sensitive skin? Or do you just find what's out there on the market to be too gritty or harsh to use on your face? Well here's what you do.


Coconut & Baking Soda Scrub:

Mix:
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil (you can get a giant jar at Sam's Club or Costco for around $6.00)
1/4 cup Baking Soda

Instructions:
- Don't melt the Coconut Oil you want it to stay solid.
- Get a bowl and spoon put your ingredients in and you want to mix them together. Your mixture is ready when its frothy and at the touch it will be smooth with just a hit of grit.
- The mixture should not be abrasive by any means if it is simply add more Coconut oil.
- If you feel you need a bit more exfoliation add a bit more baking soda, but do it by small increments so you don't add too much.
- Stored at room temperature this mixture will last for a week.

How to use:
- Wet your face
- Scoop out a tablespoon of your Scrub onto your hand and rub it between your hands to work it a bit.
- Gently apply the product to your face, neck, and lips. Rub in small circles going up on your cheeks, forehead and neck, and down on your nose.
- With a rag rinse off with warm water.

Tips:
- This scrub is great everywhere on the body, take it in the shower or bath with you for a great relaxing experience that will leave your skin bright and glowing.
- Though the scrub is completely natural and gentle I still wouldn't use it everyday once a week is sufficient.
- For a complete facial before using the scrub hold you face over a pot of steam with a towel over you head for three 60 sec. intervals. Follow up with your new scrub, for a natural toner use that apple cider vinegar that's in the pantry (it does wonders for your skin) then use a bit of Coconut Oil as a moisturizer.

Enjoy!
