My good friend Bronwen, from the blog Rubyna and the creator of the infamous Wedding Wednesday posts, mentioned her need for a "good body scrub. One that can revitalize my skin for the summer." So, Bronwen, without further adieu, this one's for you!
The Ultimate Sea Salt Body Scrub

1 cup coarse sea salt
1/2 cup baby oil
Stir the ingredients together and put into a mason jar (with a lid) or a tupperware container (again, with a lid). Let the mixture sit for 24 hours, covered. After sitting period, stir the mixture and apply to any areas you wish to exfoliate. (I always take this mixture in to the shower/bath with me.) Massage the scrub into your skin and let sit for about 2 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and pat skin dry.
Why this works? I should mention that sugar can be substituted for sea salt should you like as it's not as coarse/abrasive as the salt. However, for summer, I prefer the coarser grain as it makes my skin glow and gets rid of all those pesky flesh-colored bumps on my arms and shoulders.
Try this easy recipe out ladies! I guarantee that your limbs will glow and be super smooth.
