Make Your Own Homemade Exfoliator
It’s a great way to get your “glow on”, especially if you do it regularly. It’s also a brilliant way to detox the body and stimulate new cell growth. I make sure I use my homemade exfoliator at least 2-3 times per week, both on my face and my body.
With all the body scrubs on the market, it’s sometimes difficult to know which scrub is right for you. A lot of the commercial scrubs have dangerous ingredients, many of which are toxic and linked to diseases. When choosing a body scrub, it’s best to select one sourced from natural ingredients. These ingredients should preferably be something you can eat. After all, my motto is, “If I can’t eat it, I won’t put it on my skin!” Is that your motto too?
In today’s post, I am going to give you step-by-step instructions on how to do just that. When I made this scrub, I couldn’t believe how easy and fast it was and when I used it the shower, I was thrilled! Yes, beauty products excite me. My name is Robin and I am a beauty addict. Now, you can be too. Hope you enjoy!
How to Make a Homemade Exfoliator
Add 1 cup of salt to a bowl.
There are lots of reasons to use salt in your exfoliator.
If you don’t want to use it for the body scrub, its also great to soak in it for those minor aches and pains.
Here’s what Dead Sea Salt can do:
- Soothe skin disorders because of it’s high magnesium, calcium, and bromide content
- Detoxify the skin by pulling toxins out of the body
- Ease aches and pains
- Contains 21 different minerals, 12 of which are not found in any other ocean
When I went to make the scrub, I found I didn’t have enough Dead Sea Salt, so I added some Epsom salt to it. Epsom salt is also a great detoxifying salt to use with many benefits, as it is useful in relaxing muscles and detoxifying the skin. Note: You can play with the amount of salt you use, depending if you want to make a larger batch. This batch makes about 1 cup of scrub.
Add 1/4 cup of oil
Add 10-20 drops of essential oil
Carefully spoon mixture into the glass jar. Close tightly to keep fresh.
Get in the shower and scrub, scrub, scrub! A note of caution: be careful while scrubbing your feet in the shower. With the addition of the oil, it can make your tub a bit slippery.
