Exfoliating your skin with a salt or sugar scrub encourages new skin cells to regenerate and leaves you feeling smooth, refreshed, and rejuvenated. You'll be amazed by how your skin will glow!
I prefer salt scrubs, and I make my own. It's easy and inexpensive. Give it a try.
What you'll need:
- 1/2 cup oil (sweet almond, grapeseed, coconut, or light olive oil)
- 1 cup fine sea salt (don't use iodized table salt, it's too harsh -and if you have sensitive skin, substitute sugar for the salt)
- 5-10 drops of essential oils (citrus oils are refreshing, lavender is relaxing, rosemary and peppermint are stimulating)
Put salt (or sugar) into a bowl. Add oil and stir until combined. Add essential oil and mix until fully incorporated.
Body scrubs make a great and inexpensive gift for friends, teachers, hostess gifts, etc. You can find fancy glass containers in any craft store, or simply buy small, inexpensive Mason jars.
