Celebrity Beauty Secret - Epsom Salt Body Exfoliator

Epsom Salt makes a great body exfoliant!
What could be better than treating yourself to your own at-home body/spa treatment.   With Epsom Salt, you can. 

Did you know that Epsom Salt has many more benefits than just relieving tired, sore, aching muscles?  In fact, many celebrities are hailing its beauty benefits as well.  This is one we're sure you're going to enjoy for soft, silky skin this summer and all year long.

What you'll need:  
  • Epsom Salt (1/4 cup)
  • A mixing bowl
  • A daily cream cleanser (1/2 cup)
  • Essential oils if you choose (6-8 drops)

In your mixing bowl, combine cream cleanser, Epsom Salt and 6-8 drops of your favorite essential oils.  This treatment is best used on slightly damp skin for smoother results and more even exfoliation.  Gently apply treatment in circular motions across skin to help smooth and polish skin.   Rinse well and follow up with a nourishing daily moisturizer.    This works wonders for rough spots as well like elbows, knees, and feet.
