Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It’s important to take good care of your skin, keeping it exfoliated, moisturized and protected. People ask me all the time how I get my skin to glow from within.
First of all, I drink A TON of water, about a gallon a day. Keeping my body hydrated helps keep the elasticity in my skin. Dehydrated skin will appear, rough, wrinkled and saggy. Properly hydrated skin appears dewy, plump and smooth.
Homemade skin scrub is another secret weapon in my “glow” arsenal. For pennies, you can make a very effective body scrub with staples you probably already have in your pantry. My favorite, simple recipe is to mix 1 cup sugar (born or white) with 1/2 cup of olive or coconut oil. Then I add in 5-10 drops of lavender essential oil to give it a nice aroma and help relax me. I simply scrub my skin (body and face) every other day before I shower to keep it exfoliated and glowing.
As the weather heats up, more of your skin will be showing. Regular exfoliation with a scrub will help keep your skin looking and feeling its best. Be sure to take good care of your body and it will be good to you!
