exfoliating body polish
regardless of how much moisturizer we use, if we are applying it to dead skin cells, we will not be able to enjoy the nourishing ingredients of butters and oils. scrub your skin gently with natural exfoliants once or twice a week, moisturize and enjoy a baby soft skin.

1 tablespoon coconut oil
