NATURAL SKIN EXFOLIANT RECIPE

To keep the body in good health is a duty – otherwise, we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.  ~Buddah It is important to take care of our bodies on the inside with proper nutrition, supplements, and regular exercise.  One supplement that is necessary to keep your skin, hair, and nails healthy and give you a Fit, Fun and Fabulous glow on the outside, is a high-quality Essential Fat.  Essential Fats are a high potency Omega 3 fatty acid supplement containing 450 mg EPA and 330 mg DHA combined with Vitamin D3.  Essential Fats is our superior quality, lemon flavored Omega-3 formula providing a high yield of EPA and DHA combined with 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3.  The Omega-3 fish oil, in this product, is from wild caught anchovies, and then the oil is then molecularly distilled to ensure purity and stability.

It is also important to keep our skin glowing on the outside (plus it makes us feel good).  Use olive oil and sugar as a natural, chemical free, hypoallergenic exfoliation treatment to moisturize and replenish your skin.  Olive oil is also a natural antioxidant containing vitamins A and E which nourish skin cells that have been exposed to sun and air pollution.  This exfoliation is easy, relaxing, and inexpensive:

  • Mix about one-half cup of sugar with enough olive oil  to make a paste.  Using circular motions gently massage the mixture into your skin — it’s safe enough to use on both face and body.
  • Brush the mixture over the face.
  • Gently scrub with your finger tips to exfoliate the dead skin from the face.
  • Wash, rinse, and blot your face dry with a towel.

If you exfoliate too often, you’ll find yourself with dry, red, irritated skin.  Typically, a weekly skin exfoliation is enough to keep skin looking and feeling soft and smooth, but it may take some trial and error to determine how often you should be exfoliating your own skin.

*Please note:  For those with acne prone skin and/or large pores, olive oil may not be able to be used.
