DIY Body Scrubs

Body scrubs are traditionally a luxury item, and are priced accordingly. Designer body scrubs can cost upwards of twenty dollars for a few ounces. Homemade body scrubs are inexpensive and easily made out of all natural ingredients. Because you don’t need to worry about keeping a body scrub fresh if you plan to use it right after you make it, your scrubs can be pure and gentle without any of the potentially damaging chemicals or preservatives that are found in many commercial scrubs. For a pampering and soothing bath time treat that will give your skin a radiantly fresh look for just a few dollars, try making your own body scrub.

To make a scrub, all you need to do is to pair a naturally abrasive ingredient with a soothing and moisturizing base. The most popular and practical abrasive for homemade body scrubs is sugar. Sugar’s small grains and ability to melt easily make it the least damaging abrasive, so you can be sure that your sugar based body scrub will help your skin rather than harm it.

To make a gentle base for your invigorating and exfoliating sugar, start with your favorite fruit. Strawberries, mangos, and bananas are three classic body scrub ingredients that will soothe and protect your skin. For every two cups of thoroughly mashed fruit, add a tablespoon of sugar. For extra soothing power, add a tablespoon of rich honey which will give your skin a luxurious shine.

For the best results, apply your homemade body scrub in the shower after gently cleansing your skin. Use a circular motion to buff away dead skin cells, and pay extra attention to rough areas like elbows and knees. Allow your scrub to linger on your skin for three to four minutes so that your skin can absorb the nutrients from the fruit, and then rinse away your homemade scrub in lukewarm water. Pat your skin dry gently to seal the moisture into your newly revealed fresh layer of glowing skin.

 

Get Radiant Skin with This Tips

An intensive moisturizing session or a fruit based mask full of valuable nutrients can infuse your face with a beautiful glow you may never even have dreamed of. People with healthy skin don’t always realize that there is more they can do to play up this feature. If you have good skin, it is time to ask yourself what you can do to make it great.

One mask that works wonders on a clear, smooth complexion is a simple mixture of two teaspoons of milk and two tablespoons of honey. To try this relaxing treatment, steam your pores open by letting your face hover a few inches above the surface of a bowl filled with boiling water. Add a few teaspoons of an aromatic herb like lavender for an exquisite scent, and drape a towel over your head to stop the steam and the scent from escaping. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for five to ten minutes. This will open your pores, which makes it possible for your mask to penetrate deeply into your skin and deliver the moisture and nutrients that will increase your skin’s glow. Apply the honey and milk mixture with your fingertips, smoothing it over your face and throat. Relax for ten to fifteen minutes, letting this sweet mask do its work. Then, rinse away the mixture with warm water, splash your face with cool water to snap your pores shut again, and gently pat your skin dry.

Use this honey mask or another relaxing all natural mask treatment on a weekly basis to help bring your skin to a new level of beauty. By putting a bit of extra effort into caring for your skin, you can turn your healthy complexion into a tremendous beauty asset. Beauty trends come and go, but great skin is always in style, so making sure your skin is at its peak radiance is always worth the trouble. By taking just twenty minutes once a week to help your skin stay replenished and vibrant, you can look forward to compliments on your skin every single day.
