This scrub contains oils that are perfect for bums and thighs. This is amazing for sloughing off dead skin on these areas, revealing fresh skin. The combination of cornmeal, which acts as a great natural scrubber, oils and massage stimulate lymphatic drainage which helps the body eliminate toxins.
All you need:
– 2 tbsp Grapeseed oil
– 6 Drops Juniper Essential Oil
– 3 Drops Lemon Essential Oil
– 80g Cornmeal (from your local supermarket)
Mix the oils by shaking them in a bottle or jar with the lid on. Shake well. Pour the oil over the cornmeal and mix until it looks like a gritty paste.
Apply it to damp skin and massage well for at least two minutes. The more energy you put into the massage the better the results. If you want to increase the effects you can use a muslin cloth or massage mit instead of your hands.
You can also use this scrub on your upper arms and feet.
This is one of my favorites. It stimulates my circulation and lymphatic system. It also leaves my skin baby soft for weeks. If your skin is in a bad way and in need of some rescuing try this twice a week for a few weeks.
I keep on top of exfoliation weekly so I only resort to this mask when my skin is in a bad way, usually once of twice every season.
Have you any exfoliation tips you can share with us?
