scrub spa treatment
to do it at home?.......By Lindisima
Sugar scrub is
a popular treatment in spas around the world. Contrary
to what you might expect, doing this treatment at home
yourself is not messy. You purchase all the
ingredients, mix them together in the bathroom, and you are
done. Of course, as we always say, all home treatments
should be done only when and if you cannot go to the
spa. There is no substitute for this type of treatment
done in a high quality spa, but you can see remarkable
results even when you do it yourself at home.
What will you need?
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of almond or grapefruit oil
15 drops of grapefruit essential oil. You may use any other essential
How to do the treatment?
Apply to wet skin.
You can use your hands, a sisal glove or a loofah to scrub all over your body.
Avoid any cuts or delicate areas. Remember: do not put salt in a cut.
Do not exfoliate if your skin is irritated for any reason including sunburn.
Be careful not to fall down due to slippery floors.
Follow with body lotion, if you think you need it. Eliminate the residues with water. Apply your favorite body oil or lotion if needed. Your skin will feel a little oily if you use thick oil; otherwise, it will feel soft and most people will not need additional moisturizer.
