Smooth summer November 8, 2013


Summer sure is in a hurry to reach us this year. 🙂 If you’re ready to shed the layers and show off smooth and supple skin, experiment with these body scrub recipes.

You might want to make smaller quantities of several variants to envelop yourself in the fragrance that suits your mood better at any given time. These scrubs may also be added to your bath water for a relaxing soak.

Ingredients:

1 Cup of salt (himalayan crystal salt, sea salt, sugar) 

NB: 1 and a half to 2 cups of Epsom salt, if you prefer it to any of the above recommended

1/2 Cup carrier oil such as almond oil, Grapeseed oil, Rosehip oil, Avocado oil.

10 drops of essential oil of your choice.

Essential oil guide:

Calming:

Lavender, Rose, Patchouli, Bergamot, Sandalwood, Neroli

Uplifting:

Jasmine, Rosemary, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Orange, Cypress

Kindly note that certain essential oils are not safe to use during pregnancy, so do check with an aromatherapist before hand. Lavender, Tea Tree and Bergamot is generally safe. 

Meanwhile, have a look at the following link if you are pregnant or trying to conceive:

Combine carrier oil with the selected salt or sugar with a wooden spoon. It should be moist and hold together well. Adjust the ingredients to achieve that result.

Add the essential oil and mix well. You may add some dried petals or a wee bit of food colouring.

Simply half all of the ingredients if you wish to make several different variants at once.

Store it in a glass container with a good lid.

Gently massage on to damp skin.

BONUS RECIPE AND FOOT TREATMENT:

Soak your feet for 10-15 minutes in the following bath:

1- 2 Cups Milk

5 – 10 Cups warm water

One teaspoon of the following scrub to massage each foot:

1 cup himalayan crystal or sea salt

1 cup Epsom salt

10 drops Peppermint essential oil

10 drops Tea Tree oil

Soak for another 5 minutes and follow up with one of our Dr. Hauschka foot treatment balms.

Our selection of body creams and butters to beautifully compliment these scrubs can be viewed at the following link:

These body scrubs make for wonderful gifts during this holiday season. 

PS: Strictly for body use. If your skin is extra-sensitive, opt for a sugar based scrub.

The carrier oils are great as a facial massage oil. Sweet Almond is ideal for normal to dry skin whereas Grapeseed oil is suitable for oilier skin conditions. I massage it on to my skin lightly before wiping off make-up with a wet cotton ball. Thereafter I follow up with my Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Milk and spray Facial toner over my face and decollete.

TIP: Use the body scrub on areas before shaving. Gently rub the area with the product, rinse off and shave without applying anything else such as shaving cream. It makes shaving a breeze and leaves the skin feeling soft. Apply coconut oil immediately afterwards.

To a glowing summer!

As the weather is becoming cooler our skin tends to feel more sensitive and dry. As we all know, a dehydrated skin is a very unhappy skin. First we notice the tight sensation and perhaps even some peeling and flakiness. Next we start seeing fine lines, especially around the eyes, mouth and across the forehead. What are we to do then?

Prevention is always better than cure, so we should focus on combating this condition.

I have deliberately chosen the word “condition” because dehydrated skin is a temporary skin condition brought on by several factors opposed to say someone who has a dry skin type.

Any skin type can become dehydrated. You might be surprised to hear this, but an oily skin is more often than not dehydrated. The sebum glands go in to over-drive and produces even more oil as we attempt to use products to dry up the oil. That is our biggest mistake. We should aim at calming the skin so that it learns to rebalance itself.

When skin is dehydrated it lacks moisture, so to remedy this skin condition we should take a more comprehensive approach by not only adding moisture to the skin but by protecting our skin from external aggressors too.

Several factors reduce hydration in the skin.

Natural aging is one of the main causes of dehydration of the skin. Declining hormones can result in the loss of collagen and elasticity which causes skin thinning.

Lifestyle choices such as the consumption of alcohol, coffee and smoking places oxidative stress on the skin which makes it more prone to dehydration and wrinkles.

Environmental factors such as excessive sun exposure, cold air and windy conditions also result in loss of moisture. Taking long hot showers and baths also contributes to dehydrated skin as it draws moisture out of the skin. Being in air-conditioned rooms also depletes the skin of moisture.

Incorrect and aggressive cleansing methods can disrupt the protective mantle barrier of the skin and increase the chances of your skin becoming dehydrated. Avoid using manual and chemical exfoliants on any skin type. 

It is important to identify the reasons and causes of a dehydrated skin condition as it will enable you to take the appropriate corrective measures.

The best way to ensure hydrated skin is to look at what we consume.

Increasing your water intake to about 6 – 8 glasses a day will not literally plump up your skin, but it supports our internal organs and enables it to function optimally. Water is a calorie-free drink! That should more than enough reason for us to opt for a bottle of water than other drinks. Your skin is the window to your health. A healthy body will almost always guarantee a healthy and glowing skin.

Fruits and vegetables contain a variety of minerals and vitamins and of course anti-oxidants and fluids that aids hydration.

Avoid foods that are high in sodium as it naturally draws water from the body. 

Use a humidifier if you work or live in an air-conditioned area or place a bowl of water in your bedroom at night.

The most obvious remedy of course would be a topical treatment. Applying a water-based moisturiser in the morning will boost hydration. Using moisturising and nourishing masks will give the skin an extra shot of intensive moisture when needed or as part of your weekly routine to maintain supple skin. 

Avoid applying lotions and creams to the skin at night as at that crucial time the skin is regenerating itself. The last thing it needs is to be exhausted by shifting creams around when it should focus on natural repair.

The skin is a living organ and has the ability to regenerate itself. We should work with that natural process and not against it.

For a happy skin, keep it moisturised internally as you would externally. Be sure to get about 8 hours of sleep at night and invest in a good Vitamin C supplement and consume sufficient Omega fatty acids. Your skin will thank you.
