Scrubby Exfoliating Lotion

Sometimes your skin just needs some extra exfoliation.

Winter is surely that time for me, so I’ve been thinking a bit outside the box about a scrubby lotion to be used before showering.

Here’s the idea: create a lotion that contains the hydrating power of Hydrovance as a humectant and the natural exfoliating power of ground luffa. Add some oils and butters, a bit of fragrance to surround you while you apply it, and we’ll be good to go.

Apply the lotion BEFORE you bathe, focusing on those parts of your skin that get extra dry. For me, that’s my lower legs, arms, and hands. As you rub in the lotion, the loofah will gently exfoliate. You’ll be left with loofah sticking to your skin; don’t be alarmed! As you wash in the shower, that will disappear and leave your skin refreshed and softened.

Let’s make it!
