Handmade Sea Salt Body Scrubs

5/29/2017


Regardless how much I'm trying to take care of my body the best I can by eating all the good foods and by working out on a regular basis - the idea of warmer weather and bare limbs on display caught me unprepared! I must admit that I sometimes forget about taking care of the skin of my body and that's a strange philosophy I have going on - even if I'm absolutely exhausted and haven't slept for 24h straight, my face needs the proper makeup removal/cleanse ritual every single time. But when I do shower, I kinda do everything in the quickest possible way - a good shower cream/foam/gel, some shaving and I'm done. I pat myself on the back each time I remember to actually oil my legs and arms. Body scrubs were a passion of mine but I haven't been using them - end result? Rather dry skin. 

So, when I got my hands on these lovely looking glass jars of handmade scrubs I truly had no excuse anymore - an additional step under the shower is going to happen, I was telling myself. And even though it was something I had to make a routine out of, now I can't imagine a week to go by without doing that little extra for my skin - and it's been paying off! Legs definitely look sheeny, the color isn't ashy anymore, ingrown hairs are gone and the addition of nurturing oils in these scrubs actually makes application of body moisturizers redundant (although I still do that from time to time).

Sadimo i Rastimo by Nela is a Bosnian brand of natural, organic skincare I've been writing about many times before - it's a brand I certainly love and wholeheartedly recommend. These scrubs are an hommage of cult and very expensive scrubs such as the Collistar Talasso scrub - lovely but overpriced, especially when you become aware clean ingredients can be used safely on the skin for a fraction of the price. Based on sea salt, there are three types. Orange scrub (210ml): sea salt, castor oil, vitamin E, orange zest, bitter orange essential oil. This one is actually my favorite - looks plain white, scrubbing particles are not as coarse. It makes skin incredibly soft! They all do but I love the feel of this one on my skin. Mint scrub (210ml): sea salt, almond oil, vitamin E, dried mint leaves, mint essential oil. It's the most invirogating out of the three. Lavender scrub (210ml): sea salt, olive oil vitamin E, dried lavender and rosemary, lavender and rosemary lavender oil. This one has the best scent so if aromatherapy is your thing - this is perfect.

I like to think of nights when I do use such a scrub my mini pampering rituals - not even as elaborate as pampering routines I used to have but equally good for the skin and very relaxing. If you fancy a great present when visiting Bosnia, I recommend ordering these beatuies from Ms.Nela from her Facebook page here. Bare limbs are nothing to be afraid of anymore thanks to her creative and hard-working hands ♡

  • Bez obzira što se nastojim brinuti o svom tijelu tako što ga opskrbljujem kvalitetnom i zdravom hranom te ga održavam redovnim vježbanjem - ideja toplog vremena i goluždravih nogu me uhvatila nespremnu! Moram priznati da nekada zaboravim voditi računa o koži tijela na način koliko brinem o koži lica. Dosta je neobična ta moja filozofija - iako sam nekim danima toliko iscrpljena, nisam spavala duže od 24h i šta sve ne ali uvijek, baš uvijek ću smoći zadnje atome snage da uklonim šminku i/ili da kožu lijepo očistim. Zato, kada se tuširam, sve pokušavam ugurati u što kraći vremenski period. Oslanjam se na dobru kremu/gel/pjenu za tuširanje koji pomažu i sa brijanjem i to je to. Samu sebe potapšem po ramenu ako se sjetim nečim namazati noge i ruke. Nekada davno sam jako voljela i često koristila pilinge za tijelo ali im se dugo nisam vraćala - rezultat? Veoma suha koža. 
  • Zato su me ove šarene staklenke obradovale i nisam više imala izgovora - dodatni korak ispod tuša se jednostavno mora uvesti u rutinu, govorila sam sebi. I iako nije bilo lako sebi u glavi posložiti da se barem jednom sedmično tijelo mora pilingovati, sada ne mogu zamisliti da taj korak preskačem a i trud se već isplatio! Noge su mnogo mekše, boja kože više nije pepeljasta, ima neki zdravi sjaj, nema uraslih dlačica a dodatak hranljivih ulja u pilinzima vam oprašta čak i ako preskočite da se dodatno namažete izvan tuša (iako ja i to sada često radim). 
  • Sadimo i Rastimo by Nela je domaći, bosanskohercegovački brend ručno rađene, organske njege o kojem sam u više navrata pisala ovdje na blogu. Ovo je brend koji volim i uvijek ću toplo preporučiti. Ovi pilinzi me veoma podsjećaju na pilinge poput kultnog Collistar Talasso pilinga - koji je divan ali precijenjen, pogotovo sada kada čovjek vidi da se čisti sastojci koje bez brige možete koristiti na koži mogu nabaviti za djelić cijene. Na bazi morske soli, Nela je napravila tri pilinga. Piling sa narandžom (210ml | 15KM): morska so za kupanje, ricinusovo ulje, vitamin E, korica naranče, eterično ulje gorke naranče. Ovo je moj favorit, iako izgleda najjednostavnije i bijel je, nema nekih listića i slićno - jako mi se dopada što je sitnijih čestica. Kožu čini nevjerovatno mekom! Piling sa mentom (210ml | 15KM): morska so za kupanje, bademovo ulje, vitamin E, listići mente, eterično ulje mente. On najviše djeluje razbuđujuće na čula. Piling sa lavandom (210ml | 15KM): morska so za kupanje, maslinovo ulje, vitamin E, sušeni listići lavande i ruzmarina, eterično ulje lavande i ruzmarina. Ovaj piling ima najljepši miris pa ako je aromaterapija ono što volite, njega preporučujem.
  • O noćima kada koristim Nelin piling volim misliti da su moji mini rituali, moje vrijeme za sebe - nisu ni izbliza kompleksni kako su prije bili ali su učinkoviti i djeluju opuštajuće. Ako sebe ili neku dragu osobu želite počastiti, preporučujem da kontaktirate Nelu koja je veoma susretljiva preko njene Facebook stranice (klik ovdje). A u međuvremenu ću da obradujem dvije drage čitateljice sa po jednim Nelinim pilingom - detalji su na Simply Selma Facebook stranici.
