PINK SALT & COCONUT OIL SCRUB
Recently I discovered Pink Salt and I fell in love with it, not only because of its beautiful color but for its versatility. Himalayan Pink Salt is a pure salt that is derived from ancient sea salt deposits, and it is believed to be the purest of all salts available. In case you guys wonder from where it gets its color, it is due to a high mineral and iron content. Pink Salt is not only used for culinary purposes but for its therapeutical properties, like stimulating circulation, relaxing the body, lowering blood pressure, soothing sore muscles, and removing toxins from the body.
Coconut Oil has been a trend these days, and honestly it’s only been a few weeks since I’ve started using it for cooking purposes, and so far I’m loving it!
For beauty purposes Coconut Oil is an excellent moisturizer and nourisher for hair and skin due to its Vitamin E, which is essential for repairing and growing new healthy skin keeping it smooth and protected against cracking. Above all, Coconut Oil prevents premature aging and wrinkling, since it has good antioxidant properties. Also its Proteins maintain healthy rejuvenated skin and contribute to cellular health and tissue repair.
These two ingredients make a great body/face Scrub. A scrub works by removing dead skin and leaving behind a layer of younger, healthier skin. Regular use can keep a smooth and glowing skin as a result of a constant exposing of new skin. Scrubs containing Coconut Oil moisturize and nourish skin while Pink Salt removes dead skin cells. I can assure this body/face scrub will leave your skin radiant!
