Winter is finally starting to wind down. I have tulips and daffodils starting to poke out of the dirt. It will be a bit before I get to enjoy the first blooms however. In the mean time I can start getting myself ready for Capri’s and sandals! This means some serious attention to my skin.
Winter in Michigan is typically dry! I lotion up and nothing seems to help the dry, dry skin of winter. That is until I came up with this amazing exfoliating scrub! This not only removes all the dead yucky stuff but leave healthy, soft skin behind!
I like to use this about 3 times a week at first then slow down to once a week. I have found it gentle enough for all over but also strong enough for my hands and feet. I even mix it with a squirt of my face wash for a good exfoliating wash!
The heavenly smell of the Orange Essential oil is 100% the boost to get my mood ready for spring! This makes a wonderful gift… Mother’s day is not too far off!
