Beautiful Scents in Your Body Scrubs

Beautiful Scents in Your Body Scrubs
It's time to get your body beach ready by scrubbing away all the dead skin cell buildup from the winter season. What better way to do this than with a body scrub. Your essential oil choices will determine the type of treatment you want your skin to have. We're going to use orange and clove essential oil in the recipe you’re about to receive. Why these two? Because they’re uplifting oils. Add them to a moisturizing scrub and they become just what you need when you’re feeling stressed.

What Are the Benefits of a Body Scrub?

You're always exfoliating your face to give it that radiant, youthful glow. As it turns out, your body needs exfoliating just as much as your face. Did you know that without regular exfoliation, your body can end up with clogged pores, just like your face? Clogged pores block moisture from getting into the deeper layers of your skin, thereby, creating a hard, unattractive looking appearance on your skin. So, every two to four times a week, treat your skin to a body scrub and see and feel the results.

Here are some benefits to exfoliating your skin weekly.

1. You enjoy smoother skin
2. Exfoliation can reduce the occasional appearance of breakouts on your back, neck and face.
3. Exfoliation reduces the appearance of dark spots and age spots.
4. Your elbows and knees will thank you for the smoothness.
5. When you exfoliate, it opens your skin up and allows your moisturizer to work better
6. Exfoliation helps prevent ingrown hairs and can make hair removal easier.
7. Reduces stress.
