Benefits of the walnut cocoa butter sugar body scrub

The brown sugar exfoliates the skin, makes it soft and moisturizes it.

The honey is a natural antioxidant, which reduces skin aging. It restores the hydration in your skin and has anti-microbial properties.

The cocoa butter like the honey is high in antioxidants. It recovers, hydrates the skin in depth and helps to reduce stretch marks. The scent can be described with only one word – heavenly.

The walnut oil is rich in vitamin B. The oil has great anti-aging and antifungal properties. Its delicate scent will give the body scrub final touches.

The oils are in a liquid state, but after a few hours the mixture will solidify and become creamy. If you are in a hurry like I was, trying to finish the video before it gets dark – you can put the bowl in a freezer for 15 min.

After you take it out from the freezer, stir well and leave the mixture to rest for about an hour. You should get something like this.
