Strong, Resilient Skin
Strong, resilient skin is more likely when we make a habit of eating a whole food traditional diet rich in skin nourishing healthy fats and oils from a wide variety of sources (both animal and plant!), protecting our skin from the sun with shade hats and the judicious use of zinc-in-oil sunscreens, avoiding chemical skin treatments, damaging skin care products, excessive exfoliation, poor diet, stress ... the list goes on!
do you have sensitive skin?
- Burning and stinging
- Contact dermatitis (allergies and irritants, also including eczema)
Apply a small amount of scrub to WET skin and gently exfoliate. On wet skin, the salt will begin to melt, providing a very gentle scrub until it melts completely. If you prefer a more aggressive scrubbing action, then apply the scrub to just damp skin; adding water with your fingertips if the level of grit is overly aggressive. NOTE: The scrubbing action is quite strong if your skin is totally dry. To avoid damaging your skin this is not recommended.
Rinse with very very warm water and wipe away excess with a very very warm, almost hot cloth.
Allow you skin to AIR DRY.
You can stop here! Many people find they can stop right here. The sea butters will provide just enough of an occlusive (sealing) layer and no further steps need to be taken. Alternatively, you can now pat dry, spritz with a hydrating hydrosol water, or splash warm water on your face and apply FACIAL OILS. For instructions on how to apply Facial Oils for best results READ MORE HERE.

TRY THIS: Salt is SO good for both oily and dry skin. Salt is very nourishing externally, I wrote a blog post about if you want to read about why.
After I am done cleansing and scrubbing, I will sometimes apply a very tiny bit of scrub to wet skin and rub it around to melt the salt – then I let it air dry, leaving a layer of nourishing salt on my skin surface. Perfection Scrub is a blend of plant seed oils AND seed BUTTERS. The butters are SO nourishing and very effective moisture barrier, helpig your skin retain moisture throughout the day.
