Bath salts are more versatile than you’d think. Last night, as part of the Bathtime Challenge, I decided to turn AHAVA’s mineral salts into a scrub and see how they act as an exfoliator. Using olive oil as the base (you don’t need very much), I sprinkled in some salt and layered the mixture on my arms and legs. With a little gentle scrubbing, the salts eventually dissolved into a slick layer of scented oil. Using a wash cloth, I then wiped everything off and did a quick rinse.
The result? Polished, silky smooth skin! But be careful. I can’t emphasize enough that your scrubbing should be very light. If you’re too aggressive, you could scratch your skin, which would lead to stinging because well…it’s salt! While I did the scrub in the bath, you could certainly apply the same method in the shower—although I am partial to the bath, of course.
Post bath or shower, we recommend using AHAVA’s Mineral Body Lotion to really make your skin super-soft.
