Body scrubs and exfoliation are crucial for the skin because when dead skin sits on top of your skin, it prevents the new and soft skin from showing. But sometimes scrubs can be harsh because the exfoliating ingredients in scrubs like sugar, salt, apricot seeds, and rice are rough and if scrubbed wrong, it can actually damage the skin.

Because of this, moisturizing and restorative ingredients are needed in scrubs. Coconut oil is great because it has anti-aging benefits and is super moisturizing. Jojoba oil is another great one because it performs in the same way as coconut oil but also has anti-bacterial properties that work great if you have acne or acne-prone skin. Both oils can be used as a moisturizer for dry and oily skins.

You can make your own DIY scrub with a few key moisturizing ingredients like coconut oil, honey, and sugar by simply following the easy steps in this video.
