The perfect accessory when wearing a swimsuit is super smooth skin!
Nothing looks nicer when you are sitting by the pool or lazing on the beach, and your skin is glowing with good health.
The first step to having beautiful skin is to exfoliate.
Every day your body produces new skin cells, and at the same time the cells on the surface die. They are dry and flaky and not all of them will be removed with general washing and drying. You can be using the most expensive body cream in the world, but if you apply directly on to skin that has not been exfoliated, it will simply sit on the surface instead of being absorbed and will not be providing the nutrients it contains to feed the new cells.
Once a week, treat yourself to a few minutes in the shower to buff off all the dead skin cells and reveal the fresh new ones. Not only is exfoliation good for skin appearance, it is also good for our health, as it allows our skin to do the job it is designed to do; protect us and allow us to perspire to keep our body heat at an optimal level.
If you don’t have a suitable body scrub on hand, you can easily make your own from ingredients in the kitchen.
SIMPLE SALT SCRUB
In a bowl, combine 1 cup of salt, 1/2 cup of coconut or olive oil and the grated rind of a lime or lemon.
Mix well and take into the shower or bath.
Moisten your skin with warm water and then apply the scrub using small circular motions.
Rinse off well.
(Please do not use this scrub on your face as it is too course.)
Make Sunday, scrub day and enjoy the feeling of beautiful smooth skin all the time.
Just for fun try the hand test to feel the difference…..
Simply moisten the back of your hand and apply a small amount of the scrub. Massage well and rinse off. Pat dry.
Now simply touch the back of both hands and you will see what an amazing difference exfoliating really makes.
Do you exfoliate regularly?
