Exfoliating scrubs and skin treatments are the kind of thing you can do once or twice a week. They’re a real treat for the body. It always feels good to use uplifting essences such as peppermint. Honey also has is excellent for exfoliating the face. Also, try using things like natural alpha hydroxy acids, which can be found in fruit, like papaya or strawberries. These are the types of ingredients that will be brilliant for making your own products at home.

Start the day with a scrub in the shower. Mix a handful of salt with some sweet almond oil and use in circular motions over the body to exfoliate and leave your skin glowing and smooth. (Don’t use on your face though – too harsh). You can add a couple of drops of lavender (skin rejuvenating) or rose oil for extra lusciousness. (Rose is reputed to attract love).
Smile at yourself in the mirror before you leave the bathroom and blow yourself a kiss! You look fabulous!
Walk tall and smile at everyone you meet today.
Give yourself the glow of health and energy…

- Punnet of blueberries (that’s a charming word for “wee basket” in case you were wondering)

Blend with water to desired consistency. Feel yourself radiating health and happiness and others are going to notice!
