Massage with a jade roller for the finishing touch.
TO MAKE A COCONUT TURMERIC FACIAL SCRUB…
In a bowl, add three tablespoons of coconut flour and one teaspoon of turmeric and mix. Slowly add honey until the scrub is semi-dry and make sure it is properly mixed through. To apply, massage into damp skin and wash off.
