I have done this homemade scrub many times with very good results. If you are not sure how your skin will react I suggest you start with salt and water, only on feet. If it does not cause any irritation, a second time use a citrus fruit juice in body. Third time can be in face, and maybe with the zest.
I suggest you make this home beauty treatment in 5 steps. Step one, make one or two mixes. You can even make them the night before. Step two, you can take a shower or wash face. According to your type of skin, it might works better on clean skin. Step three, apply the mixes. Leave it for 5 to 15 minutes. Step four, rinse gently with cold water. Step five, Optional. When skin is clean and fresh after scrub it is the perfect time to hydrate. Love yourself, enjoy !
FEET SCRUB: SALT AND WHITE POMELO.
– 50 o 100gr. table salt. – juice of 1 lemons or limes, or from 1 white pomelo – Optional. 1/2 tea spoon of olive oil. -Optional: the lemon or pomelo zest.

Mix all ingredients. 400gr.If you use oils remember the shower floor will be slippery, be carefull.
FACE SCRUB: SALT AND ORANGE SCRUB
– 100gr. table salt. (I use rock salt: pink salt from Cusco, Peru). -Juice of 1 orange or just water. -Optional: Orange zest, mainly to add more color and fragrance. Optional 1/2 tea spoon of any cosmetic oil (Almond oil, avocado oil)
Mix all ingredients. As is contains natural fruit juice, I think It can preserve its properties for 1 or 2 days.
As I explain in the video version, use ingredients on a budget and according to your type of skin. Dermatologist suggest not to exfoliste too often, as it will irritate your skin.
When it comes to salt it is practical to think about it in terms of: refined and unrefined. Refined salt is that we found as table salt in most markets. This salt has been refined to eliminate impurities. Salt naturally contains some iodine and fluorine. Refined salt might contain added iodine and fluorine and anti-caging agents. So the main benefit of eating unrefined salt would be avoiding those agents. Unrefined refers to both: sea salt, harvest form the sea; and land or rock salt found in solid state.
According to Maryanne Drake and many scientifically research it is true that unrefined salt contains beneficial substances like magnesium and calcium. The quantities, as you see in data table, might not make a big difference as salt consumptions should keep low. The price of unrefined salt is higher. So I think it is first a matter of budget.
I found that the levels of vitamin C depend on different conditions the fruits were cultivated: the land, weather conditions and if it is a traditional or organic crop. Approximately vitamin C levels of some citrus in Fatin Najwa data table.
I believe when it comes about diet is better to have a balance diet. When possible buying from local business. That is also a way to reduce ecological foot print. When it comes to the health of your skin is similar. Get what is local and on a budget. Different part of your body might react different, so be careful.
I hope you enjoy it, let me know how it was. Remember to follow our media. See you soon, dear “Net”.
