Happy Weekend...

For me weekends are time to go out and have fun but before that its very important to de-stress too.

After a long hectic week, it is very important to relax, spend time on your own, detox and most importantly pamper yourself delightfully.

You not only need to relax to soothe your body but you also need to give some care to your skin by ex-foliating and rejuvenating.

Let me share with you how I like to exfoliate.

I first take some steam on my face and then make this homemade scrub which not only refreshes my skin completely and but also gives it a nice shine.

I alternate between a face pack and this scrub every weekend. I use either of the one as it helps to maintains a nice balance for my skin care.

Ideally the best time to exfoliate is before going to bed because when your sleeping, your skin gets to breathe peacefully.

The ingredients of this scrub are

Sugar (main ingredient) - 1-2 tbsp

Aloevera Gel - 1 tsp

Lemon Juice - A few drops

Rosewater - 1 tsp

Apricot Oil - 1tsp, you can also use Olive Oil alternatively.

You need to mix the above ingredients in proportion with which the sugar softens, remember sugar should not melt and you need to scrub this gently with light fingers on your face, you can also scrub it on your elbows. And wash it off with room temperature water.

Do try it for a better skin!

Happy Weekend once again.
