The best part of summer is spending days outside on the beach, at barbecues and in the pool. Unfortunately, soaking up the sun’s rays and chlorine damages our skin; this damage shows up in your complexion by fall. Experiencing dull and rough from a summer of outdoor activities? Exfoliation is needed prior to moisturizing as the skin is dehydrated and covered in dryness. (eeeek!)
Start with a homemade pumpkin sugar scrub to slough off dead skin cells; this will allow for your skin to absorb the natural butters, vitamins and essential oils in Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine. Adding pumpkin to your scrub will assist your skin in recovering; the enzymes in pumpkin pulp dissolve dull, dead cells to reveal healthy radiant skin underneath. Try this recipe:
- 1/2 cup organic pureed pumpkin
- 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- Add a small amount of powdered cinnamon, clove, or a drop of vanilla – all three can scents can also be added as essential oils, but just use a drop or two
Mix all ingredients in a clean, unbreakable bowl with a spoon. Apply generously to your body during your shower or bath, rinse well. Dry off completely and hydrate your skin with Nourish & Shine to seal in moisture…your skin will thank you!
Enjoy your weekend.
Love Your Hair,
