Honey and Sea Salt Scrub Recipe

Honey and Sea Salt Scrub Recipe

Hey! Let me show you a simple honey sea salt scrub recipe to add to your skincare routine.

This homemade salt scrub is made with only three ingredients—or four if you add essential oil to yours.

I left out the essential oil because sometimes your DIY scrubs are better with fewer ingredients.

Also, leaving out fragrances helps you enjoy the natural aroma of other ingredients like coconut oil and honey.

So gather your ingredients, and let’s make a DIY sea salt honey scrub to slough off dead skin on the face and body.

And show off brighter skin.

How to store your honey and sea salt scrub

You can store this scrub in a cool, dry place.

It will do just fine on your countertop.

But you can keep it in the fridge if you like.

Lastly, always scoop some into a different container to use in the shower.

This will keep the remaining scrub fresh and water-free.

Also, use homemade scrubs within a few days of making them.

Luckily, you can use this scrub only twice, depending on how much you use anyway.

But I’d divide it into two parts and use it up within the week.

How to use your honey and sea salt scrub

To use this honey salt scrub, you must start with clean skin.

  • So shower first to remove dirt and soften your skin for exfoliation.
  • Then rinse and pat your body.
  • Next, scoop some sea salt and honey scrub with your finger and exfoliate your body gently.
  • Leave the salt scrub on your body for several minutes.
  • Use this time to brush your teeth, scroll through social media, etc.
  • And when the time is up, rinse your body with lukewarm water.
  • Pat with a towel, and moisturize immediately.

Lastly, the essential oil is optional.

You’d see that I didn’t add it to my scrub.

But do what works best for you.
