OMG! Love face scrubs! Now you can make your own salt scrub at home.
I started scrubbing (exfoliating) my face when I was 15 years old. Back then, there weren’t many choices, so I settled for a drugstore product called a Buff Puff - a mild abrasive scrubbing pad.
But, these days, I like to make my own sea salt scrub for face and neck. And, you can tailor it depending on your skin needs.
During dry, cold winter months, add some oils to your scrubs. During hot, humid weather, omit oils and just use water to mix with your scrubs.
One of my favorite and very healthy beauty tip for a smoother face and neck is a salt facial. I always assumed that salt was drying, but it's the opposite.
How can this beauty tip slow face aging?
As we age, our skin is not able to shed dead skin cells as easily as it once did. You can help this process along with a good facial scrub. A good scrub helps remove those skin dulling dead cells, unclog pores, and help anti-aging products penetrate better.
Salt can help the skin retain moisture and hydration in the skin where it’s most needed. It also has anti-inflammatory and calming properties. If your skin is very dry or sensitive, try adding honey to the mixture.
Honey is also a great skin healer and hydrator. In fact, it actually helps draw moisture out of the air and into the skin!
Honey is cheap and very effective for plumping up parched skin, and works well for women and men. The only downside, it's a bit sticky/messy.
Plus, it also has antibacterial and anti-oxidant properties, which is a bonus for aging skin.

Self tanners have been around for years and yet many products tend to leave a weird orange skin color.
Many women have a hard time finding a sunless tanner that works well with their skin tone. Or some say that self-tanners cause clogged pores or breakouts.
But, this self-tanner is different. For me, this is one of the best (and least expensive) beauty tips for the face, neck, and body that offers almost instant results.
If you've noticed a change in skin tone - more blotchy, spotted or more brown spots. Self tanning is a great option to smooth out your complexion.
Adding a sunless boost of natural color helps hide imperfections like freckles, age spots, and broken blood vessels... All without dangerous sun rays.
I smooth this anti-aging, vitamin rich cream on my face and body about 2 times a week and it hydrates while helps give my face and body a gorgeous year round glow.
Why a Quality Self Tanner Matters: Many women have told me that drugstore brand self-tanning creams and sprays don't offer the best color result. And I know what they mean. I've been using self tanners for over 30 years and some made my face look dark, but dirty and dull.
If you're very pale consider using a lighter toned tanner and consider and have consider spending a little extra and get a good quality tanning cream.
If you haven’t had any luck with self-tanning facial products, consider giving this one a try. It is a hydrating, anti-aging self tanning cream.
Bonus Beauty Tip: For a face slimming effect - try smoothing a little extra self tanning cream down the sides of your face and neck and under your chin. This can help slim a full face and/or camouflage a double chin.
As we age our lips tend to thin out. They lose shape and definition. I found a simple solution to this issue that only takes 2 minutes and lasts for hours. It's a one time cost solution that you can use over and over again without having to spend thousands of dollars for lip injections.
