Fall is in the air and that means our skin is getting drier by the minute. It's time to add a little something extra to your beauty regime without the hassle of spending money on overly expensive products. At home, do-it-yourself au natural remedies are a perfect solution. It turns out that herbs, spices and food can do more than create a tasty dish!
So, this week we are bringing in the scents (and feeling) of fall with this seasonal Pumpkin Spice Sugar Body Scrub.
Almond Oil: Almond oil is rich in Vitamin A, B and E which are great for skin health. It improves complexion and skin's retaining glow by adding extra moisture. It even relieves irritation and inflammation of the skin!
Brown Sugar: It's particles are soft and small making it a safe exfoliator that won’t tear the skin.
Sugar in the Raw: These grains are large yet gentle enough to rub off the extra dead skin on your body which is needed to bring out your healthy glow.
Pumpkin Pie Spice, Ground Cinnamon and Nutmeg: These three powerhouses work great together. Not only do they bring the yummy smell of fall to your scrub, but they also have anti-inflammatory properties and help diminish the appearance of scars and marks.
Let’s get started…
