Looking for a low-cost/all-natural way to get rid of winter skin? Try out a body scrub. There are some pretty amazing ones on the market. Fresh makes a fabulous Brown Sugar body polish, and Sabon makes a fantastic scrub as well. But, who wants to spent $30-$65 on a body scrub that you could make for a fraction of that price?
Here is a low-budget version:
- 1 Cup fine crystal Sea Salt (or you could use Epson Salts)
- 1/2 Cup Oil (I like avocado oil- but you could use any oil)
- 2 Tablespoons Honey
- 5-10 drops of Essential Oils
Store the scrub in an airtight container. It will last longer if you refrigerate it.
I like jars from IKEA, which run around $2. You can use any airtight container. If you want to get extra fancy, you can use these templates from Martha Stewart to create some labels for your scrub. These would be great if you wanted to give it away as a gift.
I love salt scrubs because they exfoliate and moisturize at the same time. I don't have to apply lotion on the days that I use a body scrub in the shower.
Any of you have a home-made beauty recipe/tip to share? Comment away!
