Body Scrub DIY for Summer: Coconut and Mint

DIY Body scrub recipe

One of the things I’ve always found challenging when it comes to beauty shopping is buying a good body scrub in a decent price. Those available at drugstores are never satisfying in terms of quality; they either hardly exfoliate the skin or have a cheap, chemical scent.
