Most of us exfoliate our face regularly for a fresh, glowing appearance but not our body. Using body scrub on regular basis can drastically improve your skin. Without exfoliation, the pores of your body’s skin will get clogged; block moisture and the skin will become hard and unattractive. Coconut oil is a miracle natural beauty ingredient for those who like to limit the use of chemicals on their skin and get awesome results. Coconut oil has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Coconut oil easily melts and seeps into the skin pores and moisturizes the skin deeply and acts as a gentle yet thorough cleanser. Coconut oil body scrubs are excellent, not just for exfoliating the body, it makes the body soft, reduces scars and cellulite.
