Combining the vitamin A of the pumpkin, the citric acid of the lime, and the lauric acid of the coconut oil, this scrub works to break down damaged, darkened skin cells that the sugar can then manually exfoliate away. At the same time, the vitamin C and citric acids in the key lime juice help to brighten your skin to further reduce the appearance of dark spots.
2 tablespoons pumpkin, fresh and pureed or canned.
1 key lime, juiced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin-clod-pressed coconut oil
3 tablespoons white sugar
Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl to form a thick paste.
Apply to darkened areas, avoiding your eye area. Let it sit for 10 minutes before gently scrubbing away.
Rinse remnants off with warm water.
