So, I’m obsessed with natural beauty recipes like homemade body scrubs. Store bought scrubs often contain preservatives that help to extend the product’s shelf life. And you know how fun and bright the colors are? They might be pretty, but those colors are actually artificial dyes.
All these additives can be harmful and have long-term effects on your health. Since I have become interested in holistic living, I’ve realized how simple it is to create effective and natural products. You can make your own body scrubs with the ingredients you already have in your kitchen.
I’ve listed 3 amazing scrubs you can try at home for less than half the price of department store scrubs. I hope you enjoy and please share your beauty recipes in the comments below.
