    Body Scrubs at Home, DIY

    The idea of exfoliating the skin so it appears fresh and feels soft and supple can be traced back to one of the oldest medical documents in the world. The Ebers Papyrus is an ancient Egyptian scroll that details medical knowledge relating to everything from depression to how fluids are circulated in the body. It also sheds a light on the ancient Egyptian treatments for skin. This circa 1500 BC scroll also relays some of the Egyptian secrets for gorgeous skin, including creating scrubs out of natural ingredients. Clearly, there is strong reason to believe that the simple concept of using some sort of abrasive natural materials to rid the skin of dead cells really does work and is an important part of any skincare regimen. Benefits Giving yourself a good scrub is akin to scraping off all the old, crusted bits from the bottom of a pot. Sure, at one time that skin you’re holding on to was fresh and new, but it’s seen its heyday! Now it forms a subtle layer over your body, dulling your natural brightness. When you slough it off, you’re going to reveal a lovely new, soft layer underneath! Getting rid of the old layer also means you’re detoxifying the skin. In turn, your complexion glows. The sloughing off of the dead skin means fine lines disappear as the rough outer layer is eliminated. This elimination of the outer layer also has the added benefit of giving your skin a nice, clean appearance. Cleaning the skin with a scrub also reduces oils and helps in preventing acne. What You Need  Scrubs are supremely easy to make at home! You need very few ingredients, which are probably already in your kitchen! Exfoliant IngredientsSugarSaltCoffee grindsRice (coarsely ground)Nuts (ground)Lentils (coarsely ground) Moisturizing IngredientsExtra virgin olive oilCoconut oilCoconut butterMilkHoneyOrganic Ghee Optional IngredientsEssential oils (any that suit you)  Storage  Use an airtight jar to store your scrub. Generally, Mason jars work great. You can package the scrub in small jars to avoid exposing your whole batch to the air each time you go to use one.  What to Watch out For  Remember to do a small patch test on your skin before using the scrub all over your body, to ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.

    The Skin You’re in

    Body Scrubs at Home, DIY

    The idea of exfoliating the skin so it appears fresh and feels soft and supple can be traced back to one of the oldest medical documents in the world. The Ebers Papyrus is an ancient Egyptian scroll that details medical knowledge relating to everything from depression to how fluids are circulated in the body. It also sheds a light on the ancient Egyptian treatments for skin. This circa 1500 BC scroll also relays some of the Egyptian secrets for gorgeous skin, including creating scrubs out of natural ingredients. Clearly, there is strong reason to believe that the simple concept of using some sort of abrasive natural materials to rid the skin of dead cells really does work and is an important part of any skincare regimen. Benefits Giving yourself a good scrub is akin to scraping off all the old, crusted bits from the bottom of a pot. Sure, at one time that skin you’re holding on to was fresh and new, but it’s seen its heyday! Now it forms a subtle layer over your body, dulling your natural brightness. When you slough it off, you’re going to reveal a lovely new, soft layer underneath! Getting rid of the old layer also means you’re detoxifying the skin. In turn, your complexion glows. The sloughing off of the dead skin means fine lines disappear as the rough outer layer is eliminated. This elimination of the outer layer also has the added benefit of giving your skin a nice, clean appearance. Cleaning the skin with a scrub also reduces oils and helps in preventing acne. What You Need  Scrubs are supremely easy to make at home! You need very few ingredients, which are probably already in your kitchen! Exfoliant IngredientsSugarSaltCoffee grindsRice (coarsely ground)Nuts (ground)Lentils (coarsely ground) Moisturizing IngredientsExtra virgin olive oilCoconut oilCoconut butterMilkHoneyOrganic Ghee Optional IngredientsEssential oils (any that suit you)  Storage  Use an airtight jar to store your scrub. Generally, Mason jars work great. You can package the scrub in small jars to avoid exposing your whole batch to the air each time you go to use one.  What to Watch out For  Remember to do a small patch test on your skin before using the scrub all over your body, to ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.

    The Skin You’re in

    Skin is amazing. Our skin literally holds us together and provides a barrier between our insides and the outside world. It’s the first line of defense against pollutants, illness, and disease, making the health of your skin a priority for overall health. While it does protect us, skin also absorbs what it’s exposed to into […] More

    Body Scrubs at Home, DIY

    The idea of exfoliating the skin so it appears fresh and feels soft and supple can be traced back to one of the oldest medical documents in the world. The Ebers Papyrus is an ancient Egyptian scroll that details medical knowledge relating to everything from depression to how fluids are circulated in the body. It also sheds a light on the ancient Egyptian treatments for skin. This circa 1500 BC scroll also relays some of the Egyptian secrets for gorgeous skin, including creating scrubs out of natural ingredients. Clearly, there is strong reason to believe that the simple concept of using some sort of abrasive natural materials to rid the skin of dead cells really does work and is an important part of any skincare regimen. Benefits Giving yourself a good scrub is akin to scraping off all the old, crusted bits from the bottom of a pot. Sure, at one time that skin you’re holding on to was fresh and new, but it’s seen its heyday! Now it forms a subtle layer over your body, dulling your natural brightness. When you slough it off, you’re going to reveal a lovely new, soft layer underneath! Getting rid of the old layer also means you’re detoxifying the skin. In turn, your complexion glows. The sloughing off of the dead skin means fine lines disappear as the rough outer layer is eliminated. This elimination of the outer layer also has the added benefit of giving your skin a nice, clean appearance. Cleaning the skin with a scrub also reduces oils and helps in preventing acne. What You Need  Scrubs are supremely easy to make at home! You need very few ingredients, which are probably already in your kitchen! Exfoliant IngredientsSugarSaltCoffee grindsRice (coarsely ground)Nuts (ground)Lentils (coarsely ground) Moisturizing IngredientsExtra virgin olive oilCoconut oilCoconut butterMilkHoneyOrganic Ghee Optional IngredientsEssential oils (any that suit you)  Storage  Use an airtight jar to store your scrub. Generally, Mason jars work great. You can package the scrub in small jars to avoid exposing your whole batch to the air each time you go to use one.  What to Watch out For  Remember to do a small patch test on your skin before using the scrub all over your body, to ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.
