Uplifting Hand Scrub

Uplifting Hand Scrub
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, lime or grapefruit AND/OR or essential oils of your choice
  • hand towels
In a medium bowl, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the 1 cup of sugar and mix.
Grate the rind of the citrus fruit of your choice into the sugar mixture until you have at least 1 teaspoon of rind or drop 10 drops of essential oil into the mixture. Squeeze 1 tablespoon of the juice into the sugar mixture. Mix well. Add additional olive oil or juice into the mixture until you have a thick paste consistency and strength of scent that you desire.

Rub mixture onto dry hands over sink concentrating on the cuticles and knuckles to exfoliate the dry skin .Rinse hands. Thoroughly soak the hand towel in hot water and wring out. Have your mother/daughter wrap your hands in the towel and sit with the moist heat until the towel cools. While you sit, have your mother/daughter give you a brief shoulder or scalp rub. Repeat the process for the other person. 

Fresh Enzyme Exfoliation

Fresh Enzyme Exfoliation
  • 2 tablespoons crushed pineapple drained or fresh pineapple chopped fine (preferred)
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, no sweetener added
  • paper towels
  • hand towels or wash cloths
  • headband
  • Olive oil, Baby Face or moisturizer
  • Shea massage cream for foot rub or to apply to face after masque
Wash face making sure all make-up is removed. Mix the pineapple and yogurt in a small bowl. Have your mom/daughter put on the headband and lie down. Slowly and gently apply the masque to her face, covering the dry areas and avoiding the eye area. NOTE: the recipe makes enough for at least 2 treatments, so don't use it all on one person!

Let the masque stay on for 5-15 minutes. It will feel tingly as the enzymes and lactic acid eat the dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin increasing blood flow and elasticity. Give her a foot rub at the same time if you like to increase the relaxation. 

Wet the paper towels and squeeze out the excess water. Gently wipe the masque off and discard the towels. Wet the washcloth or hand towel with warm water and wring out. Apply the warm towel to her face and let sit for a few minutes. Have her feel how soft her skin is after removing the washcloth and then have her apply the moisturizer.  Trade so you can get your treatment! 

This masque is a real crowd pleaser so try it with your girlfriends too sometime!
