beauty tip #3 EXFOLIATING SEA SALT & APRICOT KERNEL OIL Body Scrub
Good day!!! I hope that you have tried at least one of the body scrub on my blog. Today, Body scrub #3 is about exfoliating, increasing blood circulation, stimulating the lymph production to eliminate toxins, while trigerring the skin's own oil. This recipe is again, from the book Secrets of the Spa. So, take your time today, perhaps ask a partner or a friend to do a at home spa with you, do a little R&R and be refreshed when you come back to work on monday, while I, as a matter of fact will be doing some R&R with my family and relatives not in my house doing a spa, but up in the mountains enjoying the cool breeze and the night star, away from the hustle and bustle of the city life....See ya!
2 cups coarse salt
1/4 cup apricot kernel oil
Make a paste out of the sea salt and apricot kernel oil in a bowl. While standing in the bathtub, shower, or on a towel with a space heater nearby, place a handful of the mixture on your body (starting with the legs, then the arms, the torso and the back) and begin spreading in a smooth, cicular motion.
It is important to keep palms of hands and the fingers flat against the surface of the skin while applying firm but not abrasive pressure to the skin. The point of the rub is to affect the surface of the skin, not the underlying tissues. After the entire body has been scrubbed and exfoliated, gently shower or rinse off the mixture using a sponge or loofah and a mild bath wash. Pat dry.
