recipe for body scrub
As we all know, a change in season also means a change in your skincare regime. Colder weather can bring on those itchy dry patches and bothersome blotches leaving your skin looking, well, kinda, bleh. No worries. We have an easy and effective DIY recipe for body scrub (see below) that will make your skin go from flaky to flawless! And the star ingredient – pumpkin -- happens to be super accessible this time of year.
Our amazing natural recipe for body scrub helps you ditch your distressed dermis and say "hello to glow" with a gentle exfoliate that unclogs your pores and rejuvenates your skin. Honey, we'll have you glowing as bright as your family's Jack-O-Lantern on Halloween. Adding this into our morning routine ASAP!
After you prepare our recipe for body scrub, stick it in the fridge until you're ready to use it (making sure to label it properly so it doesn't accidentally end up in a Thanksgiving pie). Once you're in the buff, just slather it onto your fabulous self and start scrubbing. You don't even need any fancy tools -- just your hands or a washcloth will do just fine! Depending on your skin's sensitivity, we recommend applying two to three times weekly using light circular motions and rinsing with lukewarm water. Don't forget to polish those parts that we always seem to forget, like your lips, elbows, heels -- and even the cute little pads under your tippy-toes.
Relax and recharge: fall style
Now let's talk timing (a highly debated topic among the skincare literati). We suggest, and most experts agree, that it's best to exfoliate in the morning after your beauty sleep. While you're catching Zzz's, your skin is busy repairing itself, so when you wake up, it's ready for some pampering (hey, it's hard work sloughing off dead skin cells). Afterward, remember to moisturize, and you'll be glowing gloriously all day long. Plus, your skin will smell like fall! Light a fall scented candle and make this Healthy Pumpkin Oat Bars and your dreamy fall vibe is complete.
It's important to take care of our skin because, well, we wear it every day. We promise that our organic recipe for body scrub will gently refine your pores, even out your skin tone, and give you a glow, au natural. Now, you may just be tempted to eat your first batch (JK, but you totally could if you were really hungry), but trust us, your skin needs it more than you do.
