It is so fun to make your own body care because you learn so many great things about the properties of each ingredient you put on your skin. In addition, by learning these, you can pick and choose what ingredients you want to include according to your specific needs. Don’t forget aromas play an important part on how your senses will react to these scrubs… sometimes relaxing, sometimes energizing!
Scrubs are a wonderful, easy, and inexpensive way to nurture and care for your skin. The best part about making your own body scrub is that you are using natural products, and you know that no chemicals or other additives that could damage your skin or the environment are added. Body scrubs are so refreshing and they revitalize your skin like no other product. Sugar is a fantastic, natural way to exfoliate your skin. This rejuvenating process removes dead skin cells, dirt, oil, etc. from your body. Also, it opens up your pores which helps to unclog them, making your skin feel soft and look youthful!
TIP: As soon as you are done using your Thai lime sweet scrub and are out of the shower, don’t forget to moisturize your skin with your favorite hydrating lotion right away. Make sure to move your hands in circles as this will help your skin tighten. It is very important to keep your skin hydrated and well taken care of!
