Scrub Your Body & Revive Your Soul

Scrub Your Body & Revive Your Soul

We benefit so much from treating our skin well.
How do you care for your skin?

Good skin is critical for healthy living, both emotionally and physically, as taking care of the only body you’ve got is vital for longevity. As we get older, dead skin cells are replaced at a much slower pace and build up on our skin surface, which causes dry skin and a dull appearance.

 

A good exfoliation helps drain the lymph nodes, stimulate blood circulation and detoxify the body internally.

Since your lymph nodes are the first step in fighting some diseases, this can have an added health benefit far beyond appearance alone. Furthermore, the increase in circulation also aids in breaking up cellulite and Improves skin tone and elasticity, resulting in softer, smoother skin. For this purpose, I find scrubs in which the main ingredient contains sugar or sea salt, are the best.

Slowly approaching the summer months, now is the perfect time to include this into your beauty routine if you want to get rid of those ingrown hairs, get healthy glowing skin, get ready for a party and feel an energy boost, its time to get scrubbing!

Full body scrubs done professionally in a salon or spa, can help you relax and rejuvenate from the stress and fatigue placed on your body. It is a heavenly, indulgent ritual that calms your body and soul. The treatment not only acts like a full body massage, so you’ll find yourself drifting away, but you get the benefits of the magic ingredients that the professional products are packed with too.

If you can’t get to the beauty salon as often as you would like, try to take time to make a scrub at home. I would advise a full body scrub 2-3 times a week for the best results.

Love the skin you are in! Relax your mind and explore the power of plants!
