I make an effort to exfoliate my skin at least once a week. It is so important to get rid of dead skin cells so that new cells can be uncovered and work their magic. Exfoliating also allows for lotions and moisturizers to penetrate deep into the skin. After exfoliating for a few weeks, you’ll find your skin feeling softer and smoother.

It’s amazing to see how much beauty products can retail for. I have been so keen on making my own that I have quite the collection to boast. Recently, I made a Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub and let me tell you: I’ll have to make some more very soon. It’s been a staple in my beauty routine and I’ve been using it so much.

Plus, its properties are beneficial to the body – both inside and out. I encourage you to pick some up at your local health food store. You’ll find so many great uses for it!

While you’re mixing up this DIY Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub Recipe for yourself, you might want to also make enough to share with friends and family as gifts. The recipients will appreciate you took the time to make something AND the fact that it’s something homemade that can’t be purchased in any store. Placing the scrub in one of these glass salt jars with wooden spoon makes the gift even more special. The jar has a little loop that holds the spoon in place when it’s not being used. (Super cute!)

  1. This is great for dry skin! It would make a nice gift as well!

  2. I have a friend who makes his own rubs and sells them at the farmers’ market. Not sure what kind he uses, but will mention this to him to see if he’s familiar!

  3. I love making my own scrubs and bath salts. I use them a lot when the weather gets really hot and dry here.

    I’m going to try this, me and my oldest daughters love bath salts. We just mentioned how dry our skin has been due to all this dry heat we are having. I bet the pink Himalayan salt scrub will work great for us and that it smells good!

  5. I am totally going to try this with my daughter. She loves salt scrubs to use on her legs.
