There are some benefits Of Using Homemade Body Scrubs, for example! Homemade body scrubs are usually inexpensive and very easy to prepare.
The right scrubs will provide your skin with that little extra boost it requires to look radiant and flawless.
How do body scrubs work?
Body scrubs exfoliate your skin and clean your pores, leaving you with soft, smooth, fresh and younger-looking/feeling skin.
There are many different ingredients you could use to make a body scrub at home.
You can combine different ingredients based on the results, the prep time, treatment time and method of application is roughly the same.
Here are two of our favourite combinations:
- Coffee and Sugar scrub (
(¼ cup Ground Coffee/¼ cup Sugar/2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
/3 Vitamin E Capsules) One of the best scrubs you could use, why? Well because Coffee is highly rich in antioxidants which combat cellulite, the sugar works as the exfoliating active, helping to remove dead skin ,while the olive oil penetrates deep into your skin,hydrating it .
- Epsom salts scrub:
(¼ cup Olive Oil/1 cup Brown Sugar/15 drops peppermint essential oil )Epsom salt is known for its exfoliating properties and for how it helps soften rough skin. It is also claimed that the salt eases stress, relaxes your muscles, lowers blood pressure, and relieves soreness. Which makes this scrub ideal after a long day.
- Combine all the ingredients until you get a thick paste.
- Cleanse your skin and apply this paste onto it.
- Gently massage the mixture, in circular motions, on your skin, there is no need to be too hard on your skin as you will cause irritation.
- Take 5-10 minutes to gently massage and exfoliate your body, spending 1-2 minutes on each area.
- Wash the paste off with lukewarm water and a wash cloth.
Exfoliate your body twice a week ideally for smooth ,glowing skin.
Use this body scrub about 2-3 times a week for a smooth and glowing skin.
Try these and let us know what you think, by no means do we recommend switching from the salon professional experience but for those times that you need a pick me up and your skin is feeling like it nees some loving ,these may just be what you needed.
