Exfoliation is good for soft and glowing skin. In this post I’ll show you a basic scrub recipe, which is very simple to make. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add all kinds of extra ingredients to your body scrub, so you can adjust it to your needs.
With the following recipe you can experiment. Are you not a fan of trying everything out and just throwing things together and would you rather follow a recipe, than follow me on making-beauty.tumblr.com, where I will post more scrub recipes, with more ingredients for specific needs, in the future.
Start off with a cup of salt. The salt grains are the components of the scrub that will exfoliate your body.
Now add some olive oil. Olive oil is great for the skin with its softening abilities. Make sure that the mixture is not too wet and not too dry. Mix this up with the salt. All of the salt should be covered with oil and there should not be any excess oil on top of the salt.
Now you can go to the shower and use your scrub, or you can add some other ingredients that satisfy your specific needs. There are a lot of products you can use to make your very own natural body scrub, adapted for your personal preferences. I’ll show you a few ingredients you can use for your scrub.
All these ingredients can be used in natural body scrubs. Experiment to make your personal scrub, or follow me at making-beauty, where I will post more scrub recipes, adapted for specific needs, in the future.
to use: jump in the shower and go through your usual routine. turn of the shower and grab your body scrub. take a hand full of scrub and massage this on your wet body. turn the shower back on and rinse off the scrub. your skin should feel nice and soft.
