I have noticed that as I get older, my skin is not as soft and luminous as it was in my early twenties (funny how that works). I don’t think I realized how much my skin had transformed over the past several years, until I had Elle. Let me tell you… her skin is gorgeous. It hasn’t been exposed to excessive sun damage, harmful lotions or general wear and tear of life… it’s just beautiful. I am admittedly envious of her complexion, and although I know I will never attain perfectly flawless skin (short of photoshopping myself), there are a few home remedies that can help me get a little bit closer.
I have come up with a great regimen for my facial skin, using the Oil Cleansing Method, and I moisturize the rest of my skin using homemade lotion bars, but I still feel like a need a little more help to exfoliate and rejuvenate my skin.
The solution? Homemade sea salt scrubs!
Homemade sea salt scrubs are all natural and made up of only a few nourishing ingredients that will help rid your body of dead skin cells, and moisturize, leaving it looking radiant and healthy. Below is a simple recipe for a homemade sea salt scrub that is easily whipped up in only a minute or two. It should last pretty much indefinitely, as long as you don’t expose any germs into the mix.
Homemade Sea Salt Scrub
- 1/8 cup sea salt
- A splash of apple cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- 5-10 drops essential oil (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until incorporated. Gently massage into skin. Rinse well, and moisturize. Repeat 1 to 2 times weekly, as needed.
