Beauty Tips: Save Money with At-Home Spa Treatments 

Want healthy, glowing skin? Exfoliation is key, and cleansing scrubs should be an important part of your natural beauty regimen. Dead surface skin cells can, over time, build up and become unresponsive to lotions and creams. This gives your complexion a dull, dry appearance since creams, lotions and oils do their job by forming a protective barrier on your skin and locking in moisture. Ridding your complexion of dead, flaky skin will allow these moisturizers to function.

Scrubs are not limited to the face—they can be used all over your body to keep skin soft. Don’t forget rough skin areas like knees, heels and elbows.

When making herbal scrubs, it is important to grind the ingredients as finely as possible. Treat your skin with care and gently scrub in a circular motion. Rinse the skin thoroughly and always pat, never rub, your skin dry. For the body, you can use a scrub with a bit more grit and even apply the treatment with an all-natural skin scrubber, such as a loofah or rough cotton washcloth. Here are some simple herbal scrubs you can make at home using natural ingredients.
