Natural Skin Care in Del Mar, San Diego
As the aesthetician for Dr. Larry Pollack at Del Mar Plastic Surgery, San Diego, I have a great amount of experience treating patients in the office. For 6 years, I have been working with patients to improve their skin by administering microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and various forms of luxurious facials. At home remedies can be an inexpensive and effective way to pamper yourself.
With the cold weather, our skin feels drier. Here is a great, simple home treatment using products you already have in your kitchen that will make your skin feel amazing. I do this on my own skin once a week during the winter months:
Mix 1 C brown sugar and ¼ C olive oil in a bowl. Take the mixture with you into the shower and wrap your hair in a towel. Gently massage the mixture all over your body. The brown sugar will gently exfoliate while the olive oil will hydrate your skin. I even use a small amount on my face and lips. Rinse off with warm water, and enjoy!
Optional Boost: In the morning, add 1 tsp peppermint extract. In the evening, add 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Make sure to always use sunscreen and come see me for regular skin care treatments!
