Throughout the many seasonal changes, our skin goes through many rough cycles. From over abundance of oil production to extreme dry patches, it can be tough to understand what products to use for what times of the year. But with following the organic and natural beauty route, many of these products are not only incredibly easy to find, but are able to be used all year round! This facial and body scrub recipe is the perfect combination for those who are battling dry patches and in desperate need of extra hydration.
What you'll need:
Using a small mixing dish, pour about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Measure around 2 teaspoons of course sea salt and mix together. Depending on what your skin is needing, the consistency can differ. If you're skin is in need of extra hydration, add more olive oil. If you're in need of a deeper exfoliation for rougher skin patches, add extra sea salt to make the consistency rougher. Before attempting to fully cover yourself in said scrub, be sure to do a patch test on your skin a day or two earlier. This is always a great way to see how your skin will react to any new product you try, and an easy way to see if you could possibly be allergic. After said patch test experiment, you are now ready to try your new scrub! Before heading into the shower, relax by putting on your favorite music and breathing calmly. Apply said scrub and massage gently onto dry skin for about 5-10 minutes (or whatever your preference may be). If you're also in need of rougher exfoliation, you may use a loofah or scrub brush to rub the mixture into your skin (but only do so if needed, as this consistency can be abrasive on sensitive skin). Once you feel fully relaxed and comfortable, hop into the shower/bath and wash off said scrub. Be warned, this scrub will potentially make your shower floor become slippery, so be weary that you wash off the scrub properly when it heads down the drain. Once you've finished cleaning up, use your favorite moisturizing lotion and you'll be amazed by the results this scrub will give. Have fun and enjoy this new natural beauty scrub tip!
