I recently got into making my own beauty products. It's as ethical and clean as you can get and practically costs you nothing. I'm also slowly trying to take steps toward living off the grid. But for now, as you might know, I work in TV (the farthest thing from living off the grid!) and I had the opportunity to showcase my do-it-yourself beauty recipes with MTV Fora. It's the perfect marriage of my TV life with my hot for food vegan life! I mean technically you could eat this lime & ginger body scrub. Give it a try and feel your body tingle.
1/2 C coconut oil
1/2 C fine sea salt (himalayan pink salt is my fave)
1/4 C fresh ginger root
2 limes, juiced
blend all the ingredients in a high powered blender and use immediately as an all over body scrub. Or you can refrigerate it or any left overs for up to a week.
Here's the snazzy DIY video created by MTV Fora.
