Epsom salt is a miracle substance in my home! I often take hot baths with Epsom salt to help soothe my achy muscles after working out. It’s inexpensive and available at most big box stores and pharmacies. I prefer to use It also helps to moisture and exfoliates my skin, perfect for when I have to shave! I also love it for my face, yes my face!
Here is how you can make your very own Epsom facial scrub:
- Add 2 cups of Epsom salt into a medium sized bowl.
- Add 1 cup of an oil of your choice such as grape seed oil, olive oil or almond oil. I personally use olive oil.
- Add 2 drops of your favorite essential oil.
- Mix all of the salt and oils thoroughly.
Store the facial scrub mixture in a plastic container with a lid. As long as you close the lid tightly after each use it should last 3-4 months. I use mine so often that I make a new one monthly!
To use this spa like facial scrub, wet your already washed and clean face with warm water and scoop out one tablespoon of the facial scrub. Massage gently into your face in circular motions. Rinse with cool water and then pat your face dry.
Hint: Use a handful of the Epsom salt scrub for your entire body or for your legs before you shave. You’ll love how your skin looks, feels and smells.
