Since we are now in the dead of winter, our skin has really taken a toll from the cold, dry air. Here are our essential tips for keeping your skin healthy this winter:
Dry brushing your skin with a stiff body brush is thought to encourage lymphatic drainage and give your skin a thorough exfoliation.
Exfoliate your body with a gentle body scrub to slough off any dead skin to reveal glowing, polished skin. If you don’t already have a body scrub, you don’t need to go out and buy one. You can easily DIY a gentle body scrub from ingredients you probably already have in your home!
Shea Butter Body Scrub Recipe
2 tablespoons Shea butter
4 tablespoons coconut oil
½ cup sugar
15-20 drops lavender essential oil
This is a super simple recipe the can be thrown together in just a few minutes. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until fully combined. You can also salt in place of sugar for a bit of a rougher scrub. Use this scrub in the shower or bath to exfoliate by rubbing in circular motions to the skin. Rinse off.
Moisturize your freshly exfoliated skin with some lotion or body butter. See our recipe book that contains DYI Whipped Shea Butter that will keep your skin hydrated and glowing all winter long.
