Summer is abandoning the northern hemisphere but will soon be making an appearance in the south! For the lucky ones who live below the Equator, it is important to prepare your skin for days of sun, sea and sitting by the pool. In order to give your skin a bright and healthy glow, nothing beats good homemade exfoliation. The combination of olive oil with lavender moisturizes the skin, helps to soothe irritation and relaxes the mind.
6-8 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of lavender
1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary leaves (chopped)
1/2 cup of coarse kosher salt
1. Combine all the ingredients.
2. When using the scrub, place about 1 tablespoon at a time onto the skin. Rub it into the skin in circular movements using a cloth or hands. Avoid the eye area.
3. Let it soak into the skin for 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse with warm water and dry with a towel.
