for all of my life, winter has meant dry, itchy skin. and for the past few years, i have solved this with olive oil and salt or sugar rubs. this year, i’m branching out a bit.
i’ve just made two scrubs:
sesame oil, kosher salt, with a bit of lemongrass essential oil
grapeseed oil, demerara sugar, and bergamot.
(just one note-don’t use a salt scrub if you’ve just shaved or have any cuts or cracks in your skin. Kinda ruins your relaxing spa experience.)
