There is a saying that goes: “If it matters to you to look as youthful as you can, healthy skin’s the ticket—- skin is the thing that can either give away your age”

Who would not want a healthy, glowing and fair skin? I am pretty sure this has been every woman’s desire for them to have and maybe the leading reason of why a lot of female population would resort to visiting nearby salon and spas offering such services with a promise of achieving that healthy, white glow! In the end, though somehow they have achieved what they wanted, their pockets aren’t happy at all… as you all know of course, services done in spas or high-end salons are so expensive and not budget friendly.

The purpose of this article is to present another way/method as to how we can achieve such goal at our own convenience. This was shared to me by one of the attendants working on a high-end salon here in area whom I befriended and sought for help regarding this matter. She even said that this type of preparation is even used by almost all derm clinics and so I am sure that this is SAFE and EFFECTIVE

And so lovely ladies out there, get your pen and paper and start writing down this recipe that’ll surely be of help to you! READY?! Here we go…

Materials needed:

1. glycerin oil/ extra virgin olive oil -according to ALLURE magazine. Makeup artist Joanna Schlip uses olive oil in the home made scrubs she makes for A-liststar, Eva Longoria! There ya go~ a little EVOO 9extra virgin olive oil) and your skin will be as smooth and silky as hers! pretty cool right?!

2. iodized salt (table salt)/ sugar – for sensitive skin, opt for dark brown sugar             instead

3. 15-20 pcs kalamansi (if you’re not in the Philippines, lemons will do 4-6 pcs since lemons are bigger in size)

                                   

4. 1 alpine can (if you’re not in the Philippines, another substitute would be any fresh milk)

5. big bowl/ plastic container

6. spoon

7. 2 pcs yoghurt packs (plain or with flavor is acceptable)

8. exfoliating gloves/ loofah mittens

The idea is just to mix all these ingredients altogether using your big bowl/ plastic container (with spoon of course^^,) but do remember this:

* the ratio for the oil and salt/sugar is 1:2


When all ingredients are properly mixed, bring your container and position yourself on your bathing tub.

* scrubs work best on dry skin and so never wet yourself and just directly apply the scrub unto your skin. 

* one can also perform a skin test that is to know if your body can tolerate the ingredients being applied to your skin. to do so, one must apply a little amount on the desired spot, and wait for a few minutes for the scrub to be settled/absorbed by your skin. when there is warmth, redness, or swelling or even unexplained itchiness in the area, immediately wash it off with lukewarm water! if none, then just proceed with the application on your whole body.

Begin by scrubbing in gentle circular motions depending on areas requiring a little use of pressure.

* for tougher areas such as: knees, soles, and elbows spend extra scrubbing time(cut a lemon in half, scoop some mixture and then scrub)

* on places like the chest, neck and stomach where skin is thinner and more sensitive, take it easy with the scrubbing and instead use your gentle cleanser on a washcloth or loofah mitten/exfoliating gloves to exfoliate and remove dead skin.

* never use the scrub on your face where the skin is more delicate


The scrub helps with the whole detoxification process by “opening up the pores for deeper cleansing of the skin”. With the improved improved blood circulation, the skin is healthier and youthful looking!

I have tried this scrub myself for a month upon learning the secret that was shared my friend and I am simply amazed by its effect on my skin… after showering, my skin feels smooth and silk! There is no need for me to use my body lotion anymore!

There you go lovely ladies out there~ I hope that I have somehow saved your time, energy and MONEY of course in going out to salon and spas when you can achieve that silky, smooth and fairer skin by just following these simple steps and just under 500 pesos (11 USD).

That is all for now and HAPPY SCRUBBING everyone! ^^
