I love making salt scrubs at home. Firstly they're so easy to put together. A good quality salt - finely ground is best - some low scent cooking oil and essential oils of your choice and voila - you have your very own home-made exfoliant.
Salt also has deeply detoxifying properties: Its trace minerals are natural purifiers that draw out pore-clogging toxins and relieve congestion.
Using banana peels to rejuvenate and nourish your skin
When you eat your next banana - don't throw away the skin!
You see, banana skin is full of brilliant anti ageing compounds including lutein, vitamins A,B, C and E along with potassium, zinc, iron and manganese. It is also high in hard to find fatty acid esters.
