I really love sugar scrubs but I recently tried a salt body scrub and loved it. You probably have the ingredients in your pantry right now so give it a try! I also made a lip exfoliator with honey and granulated sugar. If you’re vegan then you can switch out the honey with olive oil. Enjoy!
WARM VANILLA AND CHOCOLATE SALT SCRUB
16 ounces epsom salt
1/3 cup light olive oil
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
Put the epsom salt, olive oil, vanilla extract and cocoa powder into a medium bowl. Mix well and make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl. To apply: While in the shower, scoop the mixture out with your fingers and gently rub onto your skin, making sure to avoid your face. Rinse well. Apply moisurizer after your shower.
*Store the salt scrub mixture into an airtight container. If you’d like, omit the chocolate for a nice, warm vanilla salt scrub.
SUGAR MAMA LIP EXFOLIATOR
1 tsp. granulated sugar (or any sugar you prefer)
1 tsp. honey (you can substitute with 1/2 tsp. of olive oil)
Mix the sugar and honey in a small bowl. To apply: use your toothbrush or your fingers and apply to your lips. Gently rub the sugar mama exfoliator onto your lips. Rinse with warm water. Apply lip balm.
*Skin care tip: Don’t use a washcloth when washing your face. It can cause tiny tears in your skin. Always use a skin shammy when washing your face, like this one. It’s especially nice for people with sensitive skin.
