I know … it is that hideous time of year when myer guilted you into treating your dog, your painful chriskringle nominee from work, your abusive family members etc. with useless consumerist trinkets… NOW I SAY IT IS TIME TO TREAT YOURSELF!
Here is my magical salt scrub recipe – especially good for those anxious types with skin allergies such as myself who suffers from oily, yet dry sensitive skin.
In a round chinese takeaway container (if you don’t have one treat yourself to a tub of fried rice also) prepare the following ingredients:
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (or almond oil)
1 tablespoon of honey (if you are a rich yuppy use manuka)
iodised table salt (great skin purifyer)and white table sugar (mixed in slowly in equal proportions till you reach the top of the container)
half a cap full of lavender oil (great insect repellant and relaxing), couple of drops of vanilla essence and a sprinkle of cinnamon
or 1 tablespoon of calendula ointment and additional honey
wet yourself thoroughly in shower and then turn off taps before exfoliating your body and face with a handfull of delightful scrub (if you don’t turn off the taps the scrub will wash away before you get to sloth all those festy skin cells!) then rinse off salt scrub
SAVES WATER AND IS GREAT FOR YOUR SKIN! ENJOY XX
