Ingredient List (ongoing)

1. Milk. The lactic acid in milk naturally exfoliates your skin while its fatty properties soothe and moisturize. Additionally, milk contains numerous vitamins and minerals that benefit your skin, including vitamins A and D.

Additional tips: Also consider adding 2 cups of whole milk to your bath to soften your entire body and using powdered milk with a bit of water (enough to make a paste) for a smoothing 5-minute face masque.

2. Oatmeal. You know oatmeal is good for your internal health, but did you know it could make you beautiful on the outside, too? Oatmeal softens and soothes, unveiling radiant skin no matter the weather. Oats contain polysaccharides which become gelatinous in water, forming a protective barrier between your skin and the elements. Not only does this barrier aide in dry skin prevention in winter, it also keeps natural moisture in and harmful toxins out. Furthermore, the fats in oatmeal help lubricate and moisturize your skin while saponins (natural cleansers that oats possess) gently purify your pores and is also a great cleanser. Next time you’re cooking up porridge for breakfast, set some aside for your skincare regimen!

Additional tip: Form a simple exfoliating scrub of warm water and oatmeal (simply add enough warm water to the oatmeal to form a thick paste). Rub the mixture in circular motions and rinse for baby soft skin.

3. Baking soda. Believe it or not, this odor-fighting substance is also a natural exfoliant. Many man-made exfoliants can be damaging to your skin, while this natural substance is coarse enough to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and fine enough to not irritate the new skin beneath. Additionally, it has the same cleansing benefits for your skin as it does for your teeth, without any harsh chemicals or additives. Once a week (depending on your skin’s sensitivity), add a bit of baking soda to your regular cleanser when to reveal glowing, fresh skin.

Additional tip: Make a paste of baking soda and a bit of water – a ratio of about 3 to 1 – to rub on the roughest patches of skin, such as the elbows and the feet, getting rid of stubborn calluses and dry patches.

4. Coconut oil. Coconut oil is a wonderful addition to your skin care regimen. Loaded with beneficial nutrients like vitamins K and E, this natural moisturizer will help your skin repair itself and actually help protect your skin from sun damage. Additionally, the powerful antioxidants in coconut oil (particularly in virgin coconut oil – meaning it hasn’t been treated) can minimize the effects of aging by preventing free radicals from breaking down the tissues of your skin. After cleansing your body, apply the coconut oil as you would any lotion or massage oil. Virgin Coconut Oil is light and penetrating with excellent shelf life and stability. It smells of fresh coconut milk. Virgin Coconut Oil is solid at room temperature and performs similarly to Kukui, Jojoba, Illipe and Shea butter. It is creamier at warmer room temperatures and is firmer at cooler temperatures. In countries where it is produced, it is a food source and has been found to be the best source of monolaurin, a well known antiseptic substance found in breast milk.

Additional tip: For an exfoliating and antioxidant rich facial and/or body scrub, combine brown sugar and virgin coconut oil at about a 3-to-1 ratio. Mix then slough away!

5. Honey. Packed with flavonoids (which protect cells), natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, honey is truly Mother Nature’s nectar.

Applying facial masks in a gentle circular motion exfoliates, cleans and invigorates the skin while improving blood circulation. Powdered clays can also be found in a variety of other natural skin care products. Because powdered clays are gently exfoliating, they can be found in natural scrubs. They can enhance the lathering capabilities of natural vegetable soaps, and clay is often used in bars formulated for specific skin types. Clays come from various regions of the world but some are preferred in skin care for their unique properties. The mineral content and physical structure of each clay determines the effect it has on the skin. Most clays have the ability to absorb toxins and excess oils from the skin, but each clay differs in its specific level of absorption.

Additional tip:

48. Sugar (Light Brown and White Refined). A great natural exfolliant that’s not too scratchy and suitable for your body and lips. We use fine granulated brown and white sugars in our scrubs. We use sugar, instead of salt, because it doesn’t sting the skin and of course doesn’t leave a salty residue. Sugar contains natural glycolic acids which also helps it exfoliate on a chemical level – not just the mechanical abrasion of rubbing it on your skin. Sugar scrubs should be rubbed on WET skin (never dry skin) and in circular motions. Let the sugar do the work, no need to grind it in, rub gently for the best results and to avoid irritation.
