This is an amazing remedy and you don’t have to cook a thing. This remedy activates circulation, promoting clear, soft skin by helping the skin eliminate toxins from the body. Don’t let its simplicity fool you. If you do this daily you will see noticeable results.
Quarter fold a cotton wash cloth (or use a cloth spa glove purchased from a pharmacy). Using hot water, wet the cloth and begin to scrub your body (without soap) rubbing gently with just the weight of your hand, until your skin turns pink all over. Start with your hands, rubbing palm and back, between your fingers, and work your way up your arms towards your chest. Next, rub your chest and back, women should avoid the breasts and for both men and women, the genitals, but srub the groin area. Work your way down your belly, scrub your buttocks, and then work your way down your legs, front and back, to your feet, scrubbing the tops of your feet, between your toes and even the soles of your feet.
At first, you’ll notice that your skin turns a mottled pink. As the body breaks down accumulated, hardened fats, your skin will turn a uniform rosy pink in minutes.
One month of faithful scrubbing and you’ll notice a new softness to your skin, and you’ll be addicted. In about two months, you’ll find that you no longer need moisturizer, as you won’t have flaky shins or crusty heels. For the best results scrub every day.
