DIY Mermaid Body Scrub

I absolutely love the beach,
so the idea of bringing some of the beach into
my skincare routine is a perfect fit.

This homemade body scrub is packed full of seaweed kelp
which is wonderful for the skin.
It’s packed full of nutrients, and vitamins like B1, B2, B3, B6, B12
that all benefit the skin.
Plus, seaweed draws toxins away from the skin,
which is why it has become a popular ingredient for tightening the skin.
I love using this scrub to exfoliate my skin,
removing the outer layer of dead skin cells
and leaving my skin softer, smoother, and touchable.

DIY Mermaid Body Scrub
¼ Cup Of Seaweed Kelp
1 Cup of Sugar
¼ Cup of Sunflower Oil or Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Glycerin
2 Drops of Lemon Essential Oil
Mix the seaweed and sugar together, then add in the oil and glycerin and stir until well mixed. Spoon the scrub into a clean container with a tight fitting lid.
To use, massage in the shower in a circular motion all over your entire body.  Rinse well with warm water.

Give this homemade scrub a try, your skin will look and feel
Smiles, Paula
