Mermaid Detox Scrub
Mermaids have a love affair with mineral rich seaweed and its heavy duty detox properties. Did you know that seaweed is known to rejuvenate the skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite? Spirulina is an ingredient many of us now have in our pantry for smoothies. It is a fresh water algae that has the same benefits as seaweed but is also rich in antioxidants to reduce redness and inflammation. This scrub is a powerful exfoliate so you do not want to use on irritated on sunburned skin. This Mermaid scrub is designed for use on the body .
Try out this easy D.I.Y. next time you pack your beach bag. Make your beach time, healing and beauty ritual time as you dive into your inner mermaid. I started making this scrub this year for our Mermaid Retreats in Cape May. You can do this year round but the beach is the perfect place. Enjoy !
