At USTA, we cover salt scrubs in our Aesthetic School and wanted to share on the blog 3 DIY recipes that are easy and effective to make at home. Exfoliating your skin is very important to remove dead skin cells, speed up the skin renewal process, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help keep your skin looking vibrant and bright! Exfoliation also helps prevent breakouts, reduces sun damage and improves product absorption into the skin. Below are three recipes that are easy to make yet beneficial for your skin.
3 DIY Exfoliating Salt Scrub Recipes
- Pink Himalayan Salt and Lemon Scrub This DIY scrub is refreshing. Pamper your skin by combining 1 cup of pink himalayan salt, 1/3 cup of oil (grape seed oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil) and juice of one lemon.
- Orange Clove Scrub The orange and clove combination is perfect for fall! Combine 1 cup of dead sea salt or pink himalayan salt, 6 drops of sweet orange oil, 1/4 cup oil of your choice, 3 drops of clove oil and 2 drops of cinnamon oil.
- Calming Lavender Salt Scrub Relax your mind and body with this calming salt scrub at the end of the day. Combine 1/2 cup of dead sea salt or Epsom salt, 1 cup of oil and 10 drops of Lavender oil.
Store all DIY salt scrubs in an air tight, glass container. Each exfoliating scrub recipe will keep for a few months and can be applied all over the body. However, be aware of any cuts or scrapes when using any exfoliation products and essential oils.
