Body Scrubs for Luxurious Skin
Summer is officially here...and that means sundresses, poolside gatherings, and the occasional beach day. Your skin has had months of hibernation so now's the time to prepare for the hot sticky days. Getting soft, supple skin for summer is as easy as 1, 2 or 3!
1. Give yourself a body scrub at home.
Though some areas may be unreachable when doing a body scrub yourself, there are plenty of benefits to make this a weekly ritual. Exfoliating dead skin cells helps to maintain even skin tone, eliminates rough patches, and promotes stimulation for growth of fresh glowing skin.
To avoid a mess, it's best done in the shower. Avoid scrubbing too aggressively - let the product do the work as you gently rub it all over your body. Never use a body scrub on your face. If you have sensitive skin, test the body scrub in one area first. Look for products with natural, high-quality ingredients for maximum results.
2. Make your own body scrub.
There is an array of do-it-yourself recipes online but most have three things in common: an exfoliant, oil, and a fragrance. Using natural high-quality products, such as macadamia oil or sweet almond oil along with high-quality essential oils will provide optimal benefits to nourish and soothe your skin.
3. Have a body scrub treatment at a spa.
The most thorough treatment allows you to simply lay back and relax. Through the summer (and winter) a body scrub spa treatment is an ideal supplement to your weekly exfoliating home treatments for luxurious skin. Spa body scrub treatments are specially formulated with skin nourishing ingredients and high-quality essential oils to stimulate your skin and soul. The body scrub treatment is coupled with a relaxing massage so you and your skin come out of the experience relaxed, rejuvenated, and refreshed.
To keep your skin looking refreshed every day, nourish it from the inside out. Drink plenty of water during these hot weeks of summer and protect your skin from harmful UV rays using a high-quality SPF lotion. Consider being sunless and sexy with a quality spray tan or using a sunless bronzer after your exfoliating treatment.
