Hand & Body Scrub is one of those items I can’t go without. Simply because it makes your skin feel and look clean, moist… and therefore the healthy glow. I’m talking hands, body and face and even feet. All year round, winters dry out our skin and we tend to appear flaky, dry, dull looking… who wants that right? In the summer, even though the humidity keeps the skin moist but still the skins natural renewal cycle leaves us with skin flaking off every couple of days. And to maintain the summer skin and glowing we must exfoliate. So why does it makes sense all year to take good care of our skin? So we can feel refreshed and radiant and young looking by removing the dead cells from the skin that are no longer useful and by doing we are uncovering the new, radiant and glowing skin.
VERY DRY, FLAKY SKIN
We’ve all been taught that basic formula for clear and beautiful skin, which is proper cleansing. And that fact is true… but also flawless skin requires regular exfoliation. Throughout the day, month and year, your skin goes through a number of changes and adapting to the changing seasons, the everyday dirt and dust and heat. Yet many of us make the common mistake of ignoring the troubles our skin goes through, and as a result we see dull, saggy and rough skin.
EXFOLIATED, HEALTHY SKIN
When trying to achieve smooth and shiny skin all year round, exfoliation should be your weekly routine. Especially if you suffer from acne, blemishes and other marks on your skin. Exfoliating regularly will help prevent these problems due to deep pore cleansing. I mentioned weekly earlier, but truly I regularly exfoliate twice a week, not more often however, as it may irritate the skin most likely. We need to give our skin at least 48 to 72 hours before helping it to shed the dead skin cells.
My Homemade Body Scrub Recipe
Here, I want to share with you my favorite (DIY) Do It Yourself at home recipe that I love to make when I have the time. It is so simple, natural quick and easy.
All ingredients are most likely already in your kitchen:
Sea Salts Grainy Brown Sugar
(white sugar is also good if you don’t have brown)
Squeezed Lemon Juice
Mixing it all together
On average for 1 time use I mix 2 table spoons of Sea Salt + 2 table spoons of Brown Sugar + 0.25 cup of honey + juice from half a lemon. But you can do as you please and figure it out as you go.
*For an ultimate Aroma Therapy experience you may add Pure Essential Oils of your choice to this mixture… Enjoy!
Purpose and use
This mixture is perfect to use while in the shower to exfoliate and detox your whole body including heals, hands, elbows and knees… perfect prior to shaving for that close shave whether for ladies or men (for facial exfoliation try not to overdo as it is a part of the skin that is much thinner and more sensitive).
So here is it, your own home made, very affordable and best part ALL NATURAL Hand & Body Scrub. I hope you try this and let me know how it went.
