Wedding Wednesdays – Get soft and glowing skin!

The first and most important thing to do, to keep you skin healthy, soft and glowing, besides exfoliation and creams is to stay hydrated from the inside out!

Avoid caffeinated beverages which can dehydrate you, instead try drinking 8 glasses of water a day.

Try not to drink too much water after 6 pm (if you are an early sleeper) you don’t want to have any sleep disturbance in the middle of the night! I also suggest to drink fast as opposed to sipping throughout the day, that way you can actually control your urge to go.

Avoid long hot shower and harsh antibacterial soaps that can cause your skin to dry.

Second important thing you can do to treat your skin, is to exfoliate it at least twice a week.

Here is an easy, home-made (with natural/organic ingredients) that will do wonders to your skin.

All you need is;

  • I/4 organic extra virgin oil
  • 20 drops of your favorite pure essential oil or lemon zest
  • 1 cup of organic brown sugar or sea salt

Choose organic brown sugar if you have sensitive skin, sea salt if you have more of a thicker skin or you can combine the two together if you are in between.

As for the oils there are so many choices; organic extra virgin olive oil or organic extra virgin coconut oil, baby oil or even vegetable oil.

Add your favorite pure essential oils, these can be bought at any health store. You can also add lemon/lime zest for smell an antibacterial effect.

Use exfoliation on dry skin before taking shower or bath. Using circular motion rub the mixture all over your body. Don’t forget your elbow, knees and soles, where they tend to be the dryest.

I don’t suggest using the scrub on your face, since the skin is thinner and more sensitive and you wouldn’t want to damage it!

After you have finished your exfoliation, simply wash it off with luke warm water and pat dry. Don’t use any body soaps to try to get the oil out, we want the oil to stay on to keep your skin hydrated.

After an exfoliation of such sort, we usually don’t need to put on any creams.

You can refrigerate the rest in a jar for up to two weeks.
