Mineral salt scrub

To transform this time at home into a moment of well-being, why not take a few minutes to exfoliate your skin, an essential part of any beauty routine? Exfoliation removes dead cells from the surface of the epidermis, helping the skin to regenerate itself. This gives it suppleness, prevents aging and prepares it to receive the cream, for deep hydration. With the arrival of the sun, a well exfoliated skin will also allow vitamins to be absorbed, as well as a more even tan.

Try this mineral salt scrub presented by Julie Morin, general manager of Strøm Mont-Saint-Hilaire. An exfoliation with this mixture will restore the skin’s essential minerals, which will allow the skin to absorb the hydrating active ingredients and vitamins.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Epsom salts
  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ oil (antioxidant properties), olive oil (vitamin E), castor oil (moisturizing), argan oil (for a soft skin) or grape seed oil (antioxidant properties)
  • 4 drops eucalyptus essential oil or your favourite essential oil

Preparation

  1. Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. In the shower, apply on clean skin using circular motions. Repeat once a week or as needed.
