Happy Friday! We hope you guys had a great week. If you didn’t, rejoice that it is the weekend! Today on the blog, it is all about skin care. If you didn’t already know, we are kind of obsessed with skin care products. Walk into our bathroom and you will see what we mean. We love using products that really help improve our skin and keep us looking our best. Plus, your skin is the first thing someone sees on you, so why not keep it looking great. We try our best to stay away from harsh chemicals that do more harm than good. You’d be surprised how many of your favorite brands use unnecessary ingredients that hurt your body. Since we always have this in mind, we love making our own treatments right at home. Exfoliating your skin is very important. You should be exfoliating your skin once a week to help remove those dead skin cells and help with overall skin health. The ingredients for this facial scrub are really simple. Better yet, you most likely have them at home already. If you don’t have the Vitamin E Oil, no problem. We buy our oil at Trader Joe’s and it is really inexpensive. Score!
