DIY Spa Idea: Bringing the Beach to Your Bathroom

Everyone knows that trips to the beach are loads of fun but do you know  that it could also be great for  your skin.  Ocean water contains loads of minerals and nutrients that promote healthy skin.  Seaweed is also rich in vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to skin, which is why it’s being used more and more in skin care products.  Sand is also one of nature’s best exfoliants.

So what happens when winter comes or when you can’t make it to the some beach for any other reason? Bring the beach to you!

It’s easy! All you have to do is fill your bathtub with water and add your favorite bath salts and some seaweed power or kelp powder to recreate the ocean in your bathtub.  Follow up with a nice body scrub to recreate the exfoliating benefits of sand. End with your favorite body lotion to replenish moisture.
