Salt Scrub vs. Sugar Scrub

What really separates salt scrubs from sugar scrubs is that they offer therapeutic, mineralization benefits. Salt granules work a little harder than a fine gentle sugar, making them a good choice for where skin that gets dry and calloused, like elbows and feet.

Sugar scrubs, like this brown sugar coconut scrub, are better for other areas that are more delicate like lips, face, neck, and chest. Sugar is gentler on your skin but will still get rid of skin dullness, uneven skin tone and fine lines due to our everyday exposure to pollution, dirt, stress and the sun’s ultra-violet rays.Whipped Lemon Salt Scrub it's a mix of body butter and salt scrub it's easy to make and your skin is super soft after you use it!

Salt Scrub Benefits

Salt scrubs are an ideal treatment for skin detoxification. The magnesium in Epsom salt reduces inflammation while sulfates flush out toxins. Salt scrubs are generally more abrasive because of their larger crystals so they do a better job at smoothing rough skin. Use once a week. salt scrubs invigorates the skin and helps to improve circulation, Sloughing away dead skin cells actually promotes the growth of healthy new cells. This regeneration process tightens the skin, giving it a firmer and younger-looking appearance.

The best thing about this salt scrub recipe is that it is mixed with shea butter, so it’s way more emollient than a regular scrub made with coconut oil. It will leave your skin feeling super soft and moisturized. I use lemon essential oil, but you can also use any high-quality essential oil you like.Whipped Lemon Salt Scrub it's a mix of body butter and salt scrub it's easy to make and your skin is super soft after you use it!

      1. Hi there, my Shea butter is solid, do you melt yours let it cool then whip it with the coconut oil?
        1. No I just put my mixer on medium then high and it starts to break up and mix in. It's kinda like using a cold stick of butter.
