E X F O L I A T E
FOR THE BODY
Sea Salt & Sugar are the safest natural products for physical exfoliation of the skin.
Because salt is course, it is a more abrasive physical exfoliant than sugar and should only be used once a week - sugar can be used daily. Sea Salts are typically used for the body because of their natural ability to improve skin texture, the granules will remove dead skin cells and should be used on feet and elbows.
Majestic Pure Himalayan Salt Body Scrub with Lychee Essential Oil
Himalayan salt makes a natural exfoliate packed with calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper & iron. Lychee essential oil is added for moisturizing effect. Use in shower and bath.
LUSH Ocean Salt Face and Body
Although sold for face and body - this vegan, all natural, scrub infuses grapefruit oil and lime which can be irritating for those with sensitive skin. Use this on body only for a tropical shower experience.
Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub
Made with brown sugar as a natural exfoliant. Kopari's scrub is made with coconut oil, aloe vera, vitamin e and capric trygliceride - a fatty acid used for its skin softening benefits.
FOR THE FACE
ACURE Brightening Facial Scrub
Sea Kelp and Green Clay are used as micro-exfoliants in this vegan scrub. This scrub is infused with plant extracts for skin benefits as well as to help overpower the strong sea kelp smell. This is a great gentle product to be used weekly - those with extra sensitive skin should be aware of possible interactions with fragrance as it does contain lavender oil.
always be mindful when physically exfoliating your skin, especially facial skin, as you can unintentionally cause micro tears

Fill your bathtub or basin with warm water high enough to cover feet. Add a half cup to full cup of epsom salt. Soaking your feet at least once a week reduces swelling and prevents bacteria from staying on the skin.
ALL NATURAL ADD-INS:
2 Tablespoons - Apple Cider Vinegar - natural moisturizer, deodorizer and can fight foot fungus
1/2 Cup - Bentonite Clay - natural anti-bacterial, packed with natural silica that promotes cell proliferation resulting in super soft skin.
Fill your bathtub with hot water and add two cups of epsom salt. If you like bubbles, Castile soap is going to be your best option for limited ingredient, all natural, chemical & perfume free soap.
Soak for 30 min.
Colloidal Oats & Oatmeal
Decreases inflammation, moisturizes and soothes itchy skin

Zenpy Nano Ionic Facial Steamer
An easy to use, safe, facial steamer that is easy to clean. Steam freshly cleansed face for 10 - 15 minutes
Rejuvenate your entire body by the use of steam rooms. There are a lot of sauna & steam spas available to try if you live near a major city, but if you don't or are looking for a more cost effective option - most gyms are equipped with a steam room. To receive any skin benefits, ensure you rinse immediately before and after.
S W E A T
Similar to Steam Rooms, Sauna use allows your pores to open for an extended period of time allowing your sweat to carry impurities, bacteria, and toxins out of the skin. It is very important to keep your skin cleaned before and after.
Sweat for 30 minutes
