One of the highly recommended body scrubs for smooth and glowing skin is a salt scrub, a treatment which is also commonly known as a 'Sea salt scrub' or 'salt glow'. The smell or texture of the recipes may slightly vary, depending on the ingredients used, but the purpose of a salt scrub remains the same; to remove the outer layer of dead skin, therefore, exfoliating it and giving you the overall effect of smoother, softer, glowing skin.
A salt scrub has various benefits:
Rubbing the skin with a salt scrub removes the dead outer layer of the skin. This layer makes the skin appear flaky and dry. Exfoliating reveals the smooth and shiny skin that is underneath making your skin will look radiant.
Rubbing the skin gently in circular motions as you apply the scrub improves circulation which leaves it glowing naturally. A salt scrub also helps to unclog pores and remove bacteria from the surface of the skin. Pink Himilayan Salt itself is a natural antiseptic that reduces pain, itching, inflammation, and kills bacteria.
Removing the outer layer of dead skin through exfoliation encourages regeneration of the skin and room for the growth of healthy new cells. This process of regeneration makes the skin tighter and with a firm, younger-looking appearance and it also evens out skin tone by reducing discolouration.
4. Glowing skin
A good salt scrub has various benefits, but glowing skin is probably the most visible one. Multiple grades of salt are used in salt scrubs but research shows that Pink Himilayan salt is the best grade for achieving the perfect glow. Ensure that you apply the correct technique while massaging your skin with the scrub.
5. Increased blood flow
Massaging your skin with a salt scrub encourages the circulation of blood within the body which not only makes your skin look healthy but also smooth and younger.
It is essential to invest in a salt scrub because this natural treatment will lead you to achieve smooth and glowing skin, and who doesn’t want that?

For first blog for the year and I wanted to keep it fun and summer themed. As the weather has shockingly been turning it on here in Newy over the last week (La Niña who???), indoor activities are out and sunshine, and outdoor fun and in!
However as much as we try our hardest to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP! We can never be too careful with our skin, especially here in Australia with that bloody great big hole in the ozone layer.
Enter Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is a tried and true ingredient in body and face moisturisers and there’s a good reason for that. It works. We traditionally know vitamin E as a treatment for scars, skin discolourations and anti-aging but did you know that it helps prevent and heal sunburn? Here are some Vitamin E tidbits to solidify why it really is the queen of ‘must have’ skin care ingredients.
