Whatever you put on your skin is absorbed through your whole body.  If you’re skeptical, try this experiment: Rub a lot of garlic on your feet.  In 20 minutes you’ll be able to taste it on your tongue.

Only 20 minutes to go all the way from your feet to your mouth.

So it makes sense to switch out unpronounceable chemicals for natural products.  Here are four simple switches that you can make yourself to keep you looking and feeling great.

Sweet Coconut Sea Salt Scrub

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sea salt
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Directions:

Mix the ingredients well in a bowl, then use a spatula to transfer to a glass jar with an airtight lid.  Keep the mix in a cool, dry place (not in your shower/bath stall).

Use it once or twice a week.  Keep the mix jar out of water and it will last up to two years – but you’ll enjoy the smooth skin so much you’ll be out of it wayy before then ;)

Almond And Olive Bath Moisturizer

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond oil
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Either 1 sliced vanilla bean or a handful of fresh peppermint leaves… your choice

Directions:

Mix the ingredients in a jar, shake until well blended.  Leave sealed for two or three days to let the vanilla or mint infuse the oils.

Keep in a cool, dry place and it will last for 2 months.

Use two or three spoonfuls in your bath to moisturize without feeling clogged.

Lavender Shea Avocado After-Shower Moisturizing Cream

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup shea butter
  • A few drops lavender oil (5-10 drops, depending on how lavender-y you want it)

Directions:

Mix the shea butter and avocado oil over low heat in a small pan, until all melted together.  Pour into a sealable glass container, then add your lavender oil.

Put in the refrigerator until creamy.

Use after your shower to soften and protect dry skin.

Calming And Toning Refreshing Body Mist

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup rosewater
  •  5-10 drops lemon or orange essential oil

Directions:

Pour the ingredients in a glass spray bottle and shake until well blended.

Store in the refrigerator and use it to mist bare skin.  It is a great refresher any time of the day.
