The weather is finally warming up, and everyone seems to have Summer beauty on their mind. Bright colored berries are crowding shelves in almost every grocery store, bursting with sweet, juicy antioxidants. In this special fresh recipe, we blend some of those heavenly berries with fresh yogurt, gentle Kaolin Clay, and exfoliating Himalayan Salt. The result is a luscious mixture that acts as a scrub and mask, giving your arms, legs, back, and tummy a gorgeous glow.
Because the moisture level in the berries and yogurt can vary, you may need a little more or a little less than one and a half cups of salt. Add enough salt to produce a scrub with a chunky, but spreadable texture.
