Recently, I have been really obsessing over body scrubs. And this yummy brown sugar scrub by Alikay Naturals has just taken the number 1 spot for best body scrub I’ve ever used. With an oily texture and a really gritty sugary consistency, this really exfoliates the skin with intent. The scent is a mix of brown sugar and caramel which is absolutely beautiful and also uplifting for me. Whenever I use this body scrub I feel like a goddess because I am always left with glowing, baby soft skin afterwards.
After showering I apply the body scrub to my wet skin and massage it into my skin in a circular motion to exfoliate. Then I rinse well with warm water. Remember my words…glowing, baby soft skin!
Bath Salts: Cleopatra Rose Milk Bath
If you want to feel like Royalty get your hands on this Alikay Naturals Milk Bath ASAP because this is exactly how you’ll feel after adding this milk bath to your bathtub.
A little birdy once told me Queen Cleopatra who was known for her glowing skin used to have daily milk and honey baths. Do you see where I’m going with this? I hope so. There’s no way I am the only gal out there who wants to bathe and feel like a queen, even if it is just for 30 minutes haha!
Adding this milk bath to my monthly soaks in the tub has truly made a difference in my pampering routine. The floral and fresh scent is soothing and seeing the red and pink rose petals floating around in my tub leaves me feeling luxurious. After rinsing my skin it feels soft and rejuvenated by the blend of essentials oils from the milk bath and I Natasha Lee-Duhaney feel like Queen Cleopatra!
Shower Oil: Jamaican Fruit Body Scents
Using a shower oil happens to be pretty new to my routine. I mostly use this shower oil from Alikay Naturals when my body is in need of a little more moisture. After my bath or after showering I’ll rub a small amount in the palms of my hands and massage it into my skin. For those wondering, it does not leave your skin feeling greasy. I shared the same concerns the first time I used it, so I tested it on a day I would be home all day and was pleasantly surprised by how well it absorbed into my skin while leaving it feeling nourished.
Alikay Naturals has other scented oils but I personally love the sweet coconut milk scent. Every time I use this oil after my shower I end up smelling myself all day. And knowing that I smell good boosts by confidence ten fold.
Body Cream: Majestic Beauty Stretch Mark & Scar Remover
My final step is using a body cream and applying it all over my body. I have tons of body creams sitting around my bathroom, but I’ve recently been using this particular one from Alikay Naturals. It’s their stretch mark and scar remover body moisturizer.
Now I don’t struggle with stretch marks but a few months ago my legs were badly bitten up by mosquitoes and sand flies and ever since then this is the only body cream I’ve used—And guess what?! Since using this product the appearance of my dreadful mosquito bites have drastically been reduced. Whew!
The great part about this all-natural, body cream is how rich and moisturizing it is which also makes it the perfect step to finish off any shower/bath routine.
Tip: Exfoliate your skin regularly to lift dead skin cells and use daily to give your skin enough time to show positive changes.
