It’s Autumn in the city, and we are embracing the scents and flavors of the season. One of our NoMI Spa nail technicians, Daniela, has offered up a fall beauty tip centered around the art of DIY scrubs:
“Not only is making your own sugar scrubs cost-effective, but they’re also easily adaptable to everyone’s preference. At NoMi Spa, we love to share our DIY recipes with our clients so they can bring the luxury of a spa day into their own homes. If you delight in the autumnal scents of coffee and pumpkin, you can turn them into a sugar scrub as well.
This scrub has a variety of beneficial nutrients for your skin. The sugars help to exfoliate dead skin cells while the coconut oil is a miracle worker for the skin, as it nourishes, is antibacterial and antifungal, and proves to be an excellent moisturizer, all while bearing the scent of cookies. While coffee serves to minimize the appearance of cellulite and tightens the skin, pumpkin and honey smooth and hydrate the skin.
This multi-tasking DIY scrub is perfect to give as a gift, or to make a big batch and save it all for yourself.
Try out the recipe below and let us know how it worked for you.
