With only three ingredients

This simple, three-ingredient face scrub, inspired by the fruity piña colada beverage, is sure to rejuvenate your face and leave you feeling completely refreshed.

This DIY face scrub is so much cheaper than getting a facial and leaves your skin feeling healthy and soft. Face scrubs are part of my daily routine, and I love the refreshing feeling I get from them.

Making a face scrub takes mere minutes, but the revitalizing effects help me feel fresh all day.

With only three ingredients

This super simple facial scrub calls for just three ingredients: pineapple, coconut milk and pure cane sugar. All of these ingredients are beneficial to our skin and when mixed together create a powerful scrub that just so happens to remind us of our favorite beachy drink.

Coconut milk contains a lot of fat that helps to break down the oils and dirt in your pores. Pineapples have enzymes that help to get rid of the dead skin cells that the coconut milk has helped to break down.

With only three ingredients

The sugar helps both the coconut milk and the pineapple to exfoliate the skin. The fine grain of the sugar is soft on the face but helps to scrub out any dirt in your pores.

To make this scrub, you add the pineapple and coconut milk to a food processor. Pulse until smooth and then stir in the sugar. Use clean hands to apply the scrub, and you're own your way to softer, smoother skin.
