While you can use it on your face as well, make sure the food colour you add is organic if you do so. However, this scrub is best used on the body especially on your hands and legs. They will remove the dead skin cells and brighten up your skin. The coconut oil will moisten your skin after the scrub has removed the dead skin cells. This scrub is best after a long day outside, when your feet has a layer of dust and your heel is cracked up. Apply the scrub and massage in circular motion and between your toes. Scrub it well for fifteen minutes and then wash it off. Your feet will now feel smooth and extremely soft. You can also use this scrub on your hand in the similar way.
This scrub is also good for rejuvenating your lips. Take a bit of the scrub in your hand and apply on your lips. Use one or two fingers and move it around your lips like you brush your teeth. Be sure to be very gentle since our lips are very delicate. Do this for around five minutes and rinse it off with cold water. You will be able to see the difference immediately!
