Self Care Gift Ideas – DIY Scrubs for Lips, Body & Feet
Self care is something we often neglect because we’re busy and it feels like an extra step that we can do without. The fact is though, in order to take care of others we have to take care of ourselves. You don’t expect a car to run without gas (or an electric charge in some cases). Whether you are looking for the perfect gift for Christmas, birthday, or a way to say ‘thank you’ a DIY sugar scrub are a great answer. They are also a great idea if you are just looking for a way to save some money but still take care of you also. Check out Self Care Gift Ideas for Her for more gift suggestions!
Lip scrubs exfoliate and make lips feel so soft and smooth! These are especially nice during winter months when the air is dryer! Exfoliating and cleansing your lips on a weekly basis will keep them soft and help them to retain moisture allowing those painful cracks to be avoided.
Body scrubs are pretty and oh so useful when it comes to making your skin feel soft and beautiful. The scrubs help promote skin cell turnover, remove dead cells from the skins surface, soften rough skin and draw out impurities. They are also a great way to relax after a long day! These DIY scrubs are a perfect idea for kids or adult gifts that are not only pretty and useful but affordable for you as well.
