Your skin reflects the climate where you live and that isn’t always a healthy climate.
This is one of many reasons why we need to take of our health.
Each year I work on getting as many toxins out of my life and home as possible.
This simple idea of health has opened my eyes to many simple ingredients we so often take for granted.
In short, it shouldn’t take a label that covers an entire product to tell you the list of ingredients. The list instead should hold very few ingredients that are easily read. For instance, This face scrub we are making today has two elements, coconut oil, and sea salt.
What is Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil or copra oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. It has various applications. Because of its high saturated fat content, it is slow to oxidize and, thus, resistant to rancidification, lasting up to six months at 24 °C without spoiling.Wikipedia
“Applying a coconut extract to human skin may enhance its protective barrier functions and have an anti-inflammatory effect, says a 2017 study.
What Is Pink Himalayan Salt?
“Pink Himalayan salt is a type of rock salt from the Punjab region of Pakistan, near the foothills of the Himalayas.
Pink Himalayan salt is chemically similar to table salt. It contains up to 98 percent sodium chloride.
The rest of the salt consists of trace minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These give the salt its light pink tint.
These minerals also explain why Himalayan salt tastes different from regular table salt.” -healthline
The primary uses are as a food additive and in cooking. However, it’s also used in spa treatments aiding people and their health.
Two simple yet very effective ingredients we are using today to create our Coconut Oil and Sea Salt face scrub.
Coconut Oil & Sea Salt Face Scrub
Ingredient and items needed:
- Take your jar of choice and mix one part melted coconut oil with two parts of sea salt.
- Mix together with a spoon.
- Let cool so the coconut oil solidifies.
If you have labels, place one of those on top of your jar, if not you can download your Face Scrub Labels right here . These are perfect to dress up your jar for home use or give the coconut oil scrub away as a gift.
That’s it. You are now finished.
Dampen your skin and take a small amount out of your jar using your fingers or a spoon and lightly rub onto your skin in a circular motion moving outward on your face and neck area. Do this for a couple of minutes and then rinse off with warm water. Pat dry with a clean towel.
You can use this face scrub daily to help with acne, to remove dead skin, or to gain a more youthful-looking appearance. If you don’t want the salt creating a mess in your sink, apply the sea salt scrub during a shower.
Enjoy my friends, and we’ll talk to you again next week.
