Sometimes I'll go into sudden death pampering mode. You ever get that? Where all at once the beauty stars align and not only do you have time to exfoliate your entire body, do various masks and manicure your hands and feet, but you can already picture the most efficient order to do it in?
Of course, Murphy's law dictates that everything else can be perfectly set up, but you'll have run out of your favourite hand exfoliant or Whitestrips. That's okay -- coconut oil to the rescue!
Start with a hair mask -- I comb a palmful (I have giant hands and super coarse hair so your experience may vary) of coconut oil through my hair from root to tip. Give your scalp a massage while you're in there.
Head on over to your bathtub with a mix of equal parts sugar and coconut oil and scrubadub. Get into all the nooks and crannies that you don't normally detail (elbows, knees, shoulder blades, and heels, it's all fair game). If you're finding the texture too coarse, add more oil. After you're done completely scrubbing up, fill your bathtub and dump another cup of oil into the running water.
While your tub fills, apply a thick layer of coconut oil to your face. Is it cheating if I ask you to mix in a spoonful of honey and a few drops of tea tree oil? Up to you, but my acne-prone skin needs that antimicrobial love. After applying a layer all over your face, neck and chest, get into the tub. Relax and breaaaaaaaaaaaathe.
After your post-bath shower, take a few minute to revel in your glowy, smooth skin. In fact, take all the time you need -- you're the boss of your own pamper day.
If you want to be super fancy, grab some cotton socks and gloves, apply a thick layer of coconut oil to your hands and feet before you slip them on. Then never take them off.
Kidding, obvs. Wash your hands the next morning.
