Things you should know about body scrubs

Instead of paying big bucks for the “top of the line” products here are some great facts about the main ingredients that you find in these expensive products. The best part is you can make these scrubs yourself. Everyday this week I will release a great scrub! So come back for more!

Strawberries: Teeth whitener. Decreases appearance of dilated pores.
Brown Sugar: Excellent exfoliation for sensitive skin.
Lemons: Natural disinfectant, deodorizer and astringent is a natural body cleanser and skin lighter.
Oats: Relieve dryness. Restores natural moisture balance to help heal minor irritations.
Brown Sugar Lemony Body Scrub
This particular scrub has lemon, which works as a natural disinfectant. It will open up and cleanse clogged pores. The oils from the mixture will leave you with soft, healthy glowing skin.

1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup sea salt 2 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil 1 tbsp of honey 2 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 tbsp of your favorite essential oil (I recommend bergamot for energy, eucalyptus or spearmint for stress relief and lavender or jasmine for something more relaxing.) Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until it turns into a paste. Apply to moist skin in circular motion using your fingertips to help skin cells slough off faster. Rinse off with warm water. Apply your favorite moisturizer. Results: smooth, soft glowing skin.
