DIY - Thai Tropical Escape Body Polish
Rice and coconut are staples in the Thai diet, but are also used as secret ingredients in many Thai beauty routines. Rice works as an excellent exfoliator because of its gentle but gritty nature, and coconut nourishes the skin with its rich hydrating properties.
Try this recipe at home and for an instant DIY tropical escape and full body glow!
Tropical Body Polish
1/2 cup ground rice
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon turmeric
1/2 cup fresh grated coconut
Mix ingredients together to form a thick scrub. Apply the mixture using circular scrubbing motions all over your body. Rinse and follow with your favorite moisturizer.
Any time you exfoliate your skin, make sure you follow with a good moisturizer to replenish the skin with hydration. When you exfoliate, you must hydrate to avoid overdrying. If you have some time, follow this body polish with a massage with your favorite essential oil. Because coconut is the main ingredient in this scrub, I love to follow with a full body rubdown with pure coconut oil. You can purchase coconut oil at any grocery store or health food store. Your skin will be glowing in no time!
