DIY BEAUTY: EPSOM SALT!

Thursday, July 16th, 2015
 Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 3.40.06 PMWe all know that Epsom Salt is good for soothing sore muscles.  After all, it is believed to boost the body’s magnesium levels, an important nutrient that helps produce its main source of energy and impacts at least 300 enzyme systems.  But did you know that Epsom Salt was also excellent for creating a luxurious at-home spa experience?  Here are some great DIY beauty tips!

  • Glowing skin exfoliating treatment: Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches.
  • Microdermabrasion Facial: Mix 1/2 TSP of Epsom Salt into cleansing cream for a deep-pore cleansing. Massage on skin. Rinse with cool water. Pat dry.
  • Bathtime Bliss: Add two cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub; soak for at least 12 minutes, three times weekly. For an extra treat, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for a refreshing scent.
  • Pedicure Perfection: Dissolve a half cup of Epsom Salt into two quarts of warm water. Pour the water into a container and soak your bare feet for fifteen to twenty minutes. For an extra treat, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for a refreshing scent. Massage the entire foot with Epsom Salt concentrating on the heels and ankles to remove any dry, rough spots. Then, rinse your feet off with clean tap water and dry them thoroughly.
  • Homemade bath crystals: Mix two cups of Epsom Salt with a few drops of fragrance to create a custom bath crystal. Add a few drops of food coloring or 1/2 TSP of glycerin if you like. Store in an air-tight container.

SWAG ALERT: THE PERSONAL MICRODERM DEVICE

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

On our hunt for the latest and greatest prosumer (professional consumer) devices, we flipped for the Personal Microderm or PMD.  Microdermabrasion is the process in which pressurized crystals and a vacuum work together to remove surface layers of the skin.  The treatment, which was once only available in a dermatologist’s or esthetician’s office, is proven to give skin a younger-looking appearance by promoting the growth of new collagen while reducing brown spots and fine lines. With PMD, you can garner the same professional results at home.

Personal Microderm is offering 20 Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to win a PMD (retail $179) simply by commenting on this post and entering here.  This SWAG Alert will remain open until Wednesday, November 9th at 9pm PST.
