Bring the spa home with this relaxing body scrub
Sometimes you need a little focused self-care, but a spa day just isn't in the schedule or the budget. Mix up a batch of this body scrub and your skin will feel brand new, without leaving the house or breaking the bank.
Rich buttermilk moisturizes your skin, while the coffee and wheat germ scrub away rough patches and leave you feeling soft and silky. Two tablespoons of Don Victor™ Pure Honey in the mix add extra moisture while honey's natural antibacterial properties protect your skin from infection and combat acne.
This blend will leave your skin feeling baby-soft and glowing, all with natural ingredients from your pantry or grocery.
Honey Buttermilk Body Scrub
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 Tbsp Don Victor™ Pure Honey
1 Tbsp grapeseed oil (olive, kukui, or canola oil may be substituted)
1 egg white
1/4 cup freshly ground coffee
2 Tbsp wheat germ (or extra coffee)
Makes 1 – 2 treatments
In a mixing bowl, combine buttermilk, honey, grapeseed oil, and egg white; mix thoroughly.
Slowly add coffee and wheat germ being careful not to clot or clump. The scrub should be smooth and creamy but with a slight grit.
Allow it to stand a few minutes, and chill until needed.
Apply the scrub in the shower or bath, using a washcloth or body sponge to aid exfoliation. Use it anywhere that needs exfoliation, but avoid tender areas, such as the face. Don't use it on any wounds or broken skin.
Rinse completely, then towel dry and apply moisturizer.
Store any remaining scrub in the refrigerator, to keep the buttermilk fresh.
Making the time for a spa day at home is challenging, but whipping up your own easy treatments can help it become a regular (and well-deserved) indulgence. The time you put in is worth every second, to restore your wellbeing and mental clarity. Plus, your skin will thank you.
Make a date with yourself today, and put it in your schedule. Then whip up this body scrub, or gather any of your favorite spa-like treatments. You're worth it.
