Frugal indulgence is what this week is about. What better way to pamper yourself, than with a luxurious sea salt body scrub. This not only will exfoliate, but also provide a rich moisturizer for your skin. My skin gets really dry during the winter, so I need a little extra moisturizer during this dry time of year.
Let’s talk about exfoliating your skin with a good salt scrub. I like to use sea salt, since I have a Sprouts store where I can buy sea salt for about $0.49 a pound. It is super cheap and a great frugal spa ingredient! Sea salt is great for baths and the skin, since it acts as a water softener and gently exfoliates the skin . It is one of the most common ingredients in high end spa treatments. Sea salt naturally detoxifies the skin, since it absorbs toxins on your skin. Since sea salt is processed differently than table salt, it retains some additional minerals rather than regular table salt.
Sea Salt Body Scrub for Radiant Skin
Sea Salt Body Scrub:
1/4 cup sea salt
2 table spoons olive oil
3 tablespoons Lemon or Lime juice
Directions for Sea Salt Body Scrub:
1. Mix the salt thoroughly with the oil, so the lemon juice won’t dissolve the salt.
2. Add sea salt and mix all the ingredients together.
3. Gently massage into the skin, while taking a shower to exfoliate the skin. This will also soften and moisturize your skin.
4. Rinse off the scrub in a warm shower for smooth, silky skin for a fraction of the cost. Increase amounts to create a larger batches of this scrub.
