Just as we have bad hair days,so also we have bad skin days. These are days when your skin itches you and has this dull look. You look at the mirror and you see a total stranger staring back at you.
One effective way of getting rid of the itching and dull look is to use a facial scrub. Most times,when travelling, the scrub is the last thing on my mind when packing. So I usually end up travelling without one. But I don't get worried when I don't have one. As long as the table or cooking salt is available at wherever I end up going to,then I am happy.

The table/cooking salt is one of the best natural alternatives to a scrub/exfoliator. It is finely granulated and wouldn't injure peel off or irritate the skin .If you are lucky to have an Epsom salt nearby ,then you are on your way to making a very good and wonder working scrub.

There are several ways of getting the best out of the it.
A teaspoon of honey can be added to half a teaspoon of salt .
For added benefits such as lightening, a teaspoon of lemon/lime juice can be added to the mixture.
People with dry skin can add a teaspoon of olive oil to get a moisturising scrub.
Do you have dry chapped lips that doesn't look sexy at all?
You can also add olive oil and honey to a pinch of salt. Rub in circular motion over lips. Rinse and feeeelllllll the difference.


Wet skin,take right amount and massage in circular movements over face for a while.
Let it sit on the face for some minutes.
Rinse with water.
Results are noticed immediately after use.

You can do this at the comfort of your home anytime,any day.
But it is advisable not to use a scrub everyday because it can damage the skin as well as making it look dull. At least once a week is better.

I would love to know how else you use the table salt as part of your skin care routine,so please comment or send an email to me at
Until my next post,remain blessed.
