A homemade sugar scrub is one of the easiest, most inexpensive and natural ways to get softer skin. The grainy texture gently buffs away dead skin cells without being too abrasive. The coconut oil in this recipe deeply nourishes the skin and hydrates, leaving you exfoliated and silky soft. Add in the matcha powder, and your skin is treated to a nice cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants, giving it a more youthful glow.
