The sun is rising and the heat is rising, which means it’s time to refresh that skin of yours! A scrub is an excellent way to remove skin impurities and allow pores to breathe. And depending on the scrub, there are also additional benefits for each type. Here are our two top favorite do-it-yourself scrubs that your skin will thank you for later:
Lime and Sea Salt Scrub
- An approximation of 2 tablespoons of Olive oil.
- ½ cup of sea salt.
- 1 to 2 teaspoon of lime juice.
- ½ to 1 teaspoon of lime zest.
You just have to mix it all together and you’ll have created the most delicious body scrub you have ever tasted! (I mean tested!)
For some additional knowledge, there are many benefits of using lime when applying it on your skin. It has been proven that lime can fight off bacteria, lighten dark spots and control the production of oil.
Strawberry Coconut Scrub
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1-2 teaspoons of dried strawberry powder
- 10drops of orange essential oil
- ½ cup coconut oil
As you might know, strawberries contain a crazy amount of antioxidants, which basically help with the prevention of wrinkle formation. The fruit also contains a high dosage of vitamin C that is normally used to fight against oily skin, and nourish it at the same time.
For coconut oil, the main advantage of such ingredient is its moisturising property. It also has a deep cleansing attribute, which can help to remove the effects of chemical exposure, pollution or any foreign object that may have attached itself to your skin.
