A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a Whole Foods event where they presented several of their 100% natural skin care products that besides hydrating and renewing your skin, they also help prepare it for Summer.
Today I share with you how Whole Foods taught us to prepare our own Body Scrub in a very easy way with natural products that help eliminate dead cells and stimulate the lymphatic system.
You can find all the ingredients you need at Whole Foods and can prepare it in these easy steps:
1.- Choose your scrub base. It can be sugar, kosher salt, or coffee. I personally prefer coffee because it helps reduce Cellulite and it’s a natural anti-inflammatory.
2.- Add your favorite oil, it can be almond, coconut, avocado or grapeseed oil. All these oils hydrate your skin.
3.- Add a couple of drops of an essential oil to add your favorite scents such as lavender, vanilla or rose petals.
4.- For a final touch, you can also add some pieces of dry lavender or rose petals.
5.- Mix it all together and apply the Body Scrub to your body in a circular motion before you shower.
I`ve been using this Body Scrub for a couple of weeks now and can feel a much softer and hydrated looking skin. The best part is that I can refill it every time I want since I already have all the ingredients at home.
At Whole Foods, you can find a vast variety of skin care brands and products. My favorites are Acure's clay mask and cleansing gel, Juice Beauty anti-oxidant moisturizer and Pacha Soap Co and Good Soap handcrafted soaps.
So now you know, go check out the Whole Foods skin care aisles and have your skin Summer-ready with natural and planet-friendly products.
