Homemade Sea Salt Scrub
2.23.12

In the past weeks, we’ve covered fun DIYs for the face, lips and hair. What’s left? The body!

It’s still winter, so if you’re experiencing dry and flaky skin like me, this is the perfect remedy. Once again, I’ve kept it super simple so that it’s not intimidating. It’s so easy to make and incredibly effective, you’ll be baby smooth in no time.
 
What you’ll need (1 application):
  • Bowl or jar
  • Spoon
  • 1 cup of course sea salt
  • ½ cup of baby oil

Here’s what you do:

1. Mix and stir the sea salt and baby oil.
2. Massage onto the skin paying close attention to the spots that need a little more TLC like elbows, knees and feet.
3. Rinse well with warm water. No need for body wash.
4. Pat yourself dry.

Additional Options:

  • Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils for a little aromatherapy.
  • Let your scrub sit for a day if you’d like a ‘gentler’ exfoliation.
  • Make a few days worth and leave by your sink to use as a nightly hand exfoliator.

It’s amazing what a little sea salt and baby oil could do for your skin! Try this at home and you’ll love the way your skin smells and feels baby soft.

Until next time, stay pretty… inside and out.

    • A better alternative to using Baby Oil is to use Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Available Health Food Stores or any Organic Type grocer. I have sometimes found it in Pharmacies and Grocery Stores. The Coconut Oil Sells Amazing, Is wonderful for the skin. Also if you have Sensitive Skin; use Hawaiian Natural Sugar for thicker skin or Table Salt, Sugar, or Brown Sugar (for really sensitive areas). You can also try other natural oils such as Almond Oil, etc. And if you want fragrance you can ad a few drops of your favorite Essential Oil. This recipe is so adaptable that you can be as creative ass you want and try differeent combinations until you find the right one for you! Enjoy your softer beautiful skin!

  2. Just curious about the “baby oil”.. as in mineral oil? I thought that mineral oil is very bad for the skin, that it breaks it down..
