Simplify Your Skin // 5 Scrubs That Work

Delicious, smooth, velvety, can’t-stop-touching-yourself skin. That’s what I love about a scrub – it’s the simplest way to get skin that is so soft, it looks it.

There’s something really amazing that happens when you realize just how capable you are of creating your own skincare, using simple ingredients and getting amazing results.

It’s a game-changer!

You get a very real sense of empowerment, not needing to buy all of these random products. It creates a strong inner beauty and if any recipe can demonstrate this, I think you’ll find it here.
