How to Use a Fall Epsom Salt Body Scrub using Essential Oils
Body Scrubs should be used on wet skin while taking a shower or bath. I recommend using body scrubs before shaving and not after. When using a body scrub avoid sensitive areas because of irritations. The goal of a body scrub is to exfoliated and remove dead skin cells. Removing dead skin cells will encourage new growth and tighten skin avoiding wrinkles and become firm. After using a body scrub will be soft and vibrant. Brightening the skin by using a body scrub will make skin look less dull.
Use this easy Fall Epsom Salt Body Scrub on your back, arms, legs and feet. Remove the scrub with a small spoon of your fingers about a tablespoon and work into your skin in a circular motion until desire area is covered. Rinse well and continue until your particular body parts are exfoliated.
