  1. I personally love at home spa treatments. Usually I put together something as simple as table salt and water and scrub my hands together. It was exciting to read this simple recipe. Lemons are one of the best fruits to use externally. They smell amazing and detoxify your skin. salon and spa

  2. Thank you for sharing such an interesting recipe for a cream and a scrub for the skin, I think I could make this one but I'm missing half of the ingredients. But I agree with you that you need to use only high-quality personal care products, and when I chose a cream for myself, my friend advised me to read the reviews on https://www.great-healthworks.reviews/ so that I can see what others write about their skincare and other products. I studied and realized that this experience was useful.
