Did you know that our skin is considered the largest organ of our bodies? It’s incredibly important to make sure that our skin is as healthy as possible, since it’s our only barrier with the outside world. Being constantly exposed to the elements can take a toll on your skin.
Skin care can be confusing, especially with how many different products and information is out there. Rather than getting caught up with the complexity of it all, you can make your own scrub and know exactly what is in it.
A good friend of mine recommended this scrub recipe and I’ve been using it ever since. I haven’t found anything as effective, cost efficient, and wonderful.
This scrub is unisex, just like our skin. Men and women alike can use it and enjoy all the health benefits. Men may prefer more musky, earthy, or citrus essential oils, however what scent you pick is entirely your preference. You can pick whichever scent resonates with you or even use a blend of several. While each essential oil has different properties and benefits, we will be delving deeper into their uses in future posts.
Not only will you enjoy how soft your skin feels after using this scrub, it’s relaxing to use. Whether you use it daily, weekly, or as an occasional treat to yourself, you’ll notice a difference in your skin.
