My new green obsession is eco-friendly exfoliating. If you haven’t been exfoliating, it’s life changing and you must make this recipe for my Green Salt Scrub immediately. Exfoliating has many benefits. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, (any woman’s arch nemesis) unclogs your pores, improves the texture of dull skin and helps keep your skin healthy, thus helping to prevent breakouts! Exfoliating will also help you retain that gorgeous tan you’ve been working so hard on if you exfoliate before rubbing on your sunscreen.
Naturally, I took a look at the ingredients in my salt scrub and I had a mini-heart attack! Nitrosamines – What on earth is that and why is it in my salt scrub?! I did some research on organic/green salt scrubs and they were shockingly expensive. I don’t want to pay $20+ for anything, let alone something I am going to use so up quickly. I exfoliate every day. The “experts” are divided on this issue. Some say it’s good to exfoliate every day, some say it’s bad for you. If you haven’t figured it out, I march to the beat of my own drum. So, I exfoliate every day and I love the way my skin looks!
So, What are you waiting for?
Green Stiletto Salt Scrub
1 cups of fine sea salt
2 cups of almond oil or olive oil
10 drops of lavender oil (I use tea tree oil but not everyone loves the medicinal smell)
Mix everything in a glass jar (reuse something laying around the house or visit a Goodwill) Jump in the shower and scrub away!! You will step out of the shower looking more radiant than ever!
I appreciate how inexpensive the ingredients are for the Green Stiletto Salt Scrub in comparison to a jar of the fancy stuff. Green Stiletto Girls are not brand snobs. We reuse, shop at thrift stores and make our own beauty products. We are completely independent and unbelievably eco-friendly.
