We’ve all been there ⏤ attacked by kiosk salespeople at the mall ⏤ coerced into trying their body lotion, hair barrettes and my personal fave ⏤ their dead sea mineral body scrub. Dead sea minerals are touted for many benefits such as relieving psoriasis, eczema and acne, cleansing, softening and detoxifying the skin and easing stiff muscles. But, I find the price tag on these products to be straight disrespectful! Surely we can do better ⏤ my recipe for this DIY Salt Scrub for the face and body is packed with a plethora of benefits and none of the artificial colors and preservatives.
