DIY Cucumber Mint Scrub
Mint has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and will therefore treat a slew of different skin problems such as acne or eczema. Mint is also invigorating so this is the perfect scrub to use on groggy mornings as it will wake you right up!
Cucumber contains mostly water and is extremely moisturizing, so those suffering from dry skin can really benefit from this scrub.
Sugar is a natural exfoliator that will slough off dead skin cells to reveal newer, softer, and younger looking skin.
Coconut Oil is naturally moisturizing and contains a high amount of fatty acids which helps with acne, wrinkles, spots, and cellulite.
