Welcome to our delightful guide on creating a luxurious DIY foaming body scrub with shredded coconut! In this article, we’ll show you how to exfoliate and achieve a radiant glow using the goodness of soft shredded coconut.
Our DIY foaming body scrub is not only easy to make but also leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft and rejuvenated. So, let’s dive into the step-by-step process of making this delightful scrub that will leave you with smooth, glowing skin.
- Foaming bath butter. This butter does not leave an oily feel on the skin. It is like soap. You can buy it readymade, or you can make it yourself as per this article.
- Shredded coconut
- Aloe vera body oil. You can use instead sweet almond oil, or jojoba oil.
- Essential oil
- 3 mica color powders
- Scale to weigh quantities
- Large bowl
- 3 small bowls
- Wooden spatula
- Wooden popsicle
- Electric hand mixer
- 3 small glass containers or jars to store the DIY Foaming Body Scrubs
Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.
Steps: DIY Foaming Body Scrub
1- Start by adding 400 grams (14.1 oz) of the foaming bath butter into the bowl.
2- Add 50 grams (1.76 oz) of aloe vera body oil (alternatives: sweet almond oil or jojoba oil).
3- With a wooden spatula, break the foaming bath butter into smaller pieces.
4- Using the electric hand mixer, whip up the contents just a bit to soften them slightly. We don’t want to whip them up too much and end up with a cream-like consistency.
5- Split the contents into 3 small bowls, as we are going to prepare foaming scrubs of different colors.
6- With the tip of a wooden popsicle, add a little pink mica color powder into the first bowl, blue mica into the second bowl, and purple mica into the third.
7- Mix thoroughly by hand the contents of each bowl. Notice how the contents are soft but holding well together.
8- In each bowl, add 13 grams (0.45 oz) of shredded coconut.
9- Mix first by hand, then whip it up a little only with the electric hand mixer.
10- In each bowl, add 3 drops of essential oil. Choose one that you like.
11- Mix well by hand.
12- Your DIY Foaming Body Scrub is now done! You can either scoop each colored scrub into its own container, or you can do it like me, scoop differently colored scrubs together, like in the image below.
How To Use: DIY Foaming Body Scrub
Using our DIY foaming body scrub with soft shredded coconut is a breeze! Follow these simple steps to indulge in a pampering and exfoliating experience:
- Preparation: Before you start, ensure your skin is clean and damp. Take a warm shower or simply wet the area you wish to exfoliate with the scrub.
- Scoop a Generous Amount: Take a dollop of the foaming body scrub and scoop it out using a clean spoon or spatula. The amount will depend on the area you wish to exfoliate, but a generous amount will allow for a thorough and luxurious experience.
- Apply and Massage: Gently apply the scrub to your damp skin, focusing on areas like arms, legs, elbows, knees, and any other dry or rough patches. With gentle circular motions, massage the scrub onto your skin. The soft shredded coconut will work wonders in removing dead skin cells and promoting smoother skin.
