Sugar and Cinnamon Magic Scrub to Protect Your Skin in Winter
Our skin needs care. We should make appropriate treatment in every season of the year. We expose our skin on too much sun, wind and cold. Therefore it deserves nice, gentle treatment so we can make it softer and loon younger as well.
This combination is maybe surprising for a lot of us, but sugar and cinnamons scrub is nothing but easy to make. But first, let’s see shortly the benefits of every ingredient.
Skin Benefits of Sugar:
I know what your are thinking, sugar? Sugar is terrible for your teeth and health, why would I put it on my body? Sugar is in fact a natural humectant. This means that it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. When we apply, it will hydrate and keep moisture within. Also, sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA)). AHA actually penetrates our skin and breaks down the “glue” that connects skin cells. This encourages cell turnover and makes our skin look younger and fresher. Sugar particles are small and very effective in removing dead surface skin cells. They reveal the healthy-looking and glowing skin underneath.
Most of us know the amazing power of coconut oil for our body, but you probably didn’t know how great cinnamon is for the skin too. Yes, it’s a great smelling spice, but cinnamon’s anti-fungal and antiseptic properties makes it perfect for treating ringworm, acne, eczema and other serious infections. Cinnamon helps to stimulate blood vessels and bring blood to the surface of the skin, resulting in plumper looking skin. If you are ready to repair your skin from damage, whip up this easy scrub.
Make sure the coconut oil is at room temperature. This will make mixing much easier. Add 2-3 drops of cinnamon essential oil to the coconut oil. Mix thoroughly. You can use cinnamon powder if you do not have cinnamon essential oil, but it won’t be as effective. Cinnamon powders are different when it comes to strength. That depends on where they were sourced and how long the spice has been sitting in the cupboards. Essential oils are actually concentrated oils and they have a very powerful healing compounds.
Mix thoroughly. You may have small clumps of coconut oil in the mix, but don’t worry, when you apply it, they will in fact melt.
How to Use:
Rub the scrub in your palms to slightly warm it up. Apply it to your face and body in gentle circular motions. Keep the mixture away from your eyes.
Caution: if you use this in your shower and tub, the surfaces will become slippery. Take care to wash down the surfaces with soap when you’re done to avoid a potential fall.
