Homemade Body Scrub

By swalford

Olive Oil & Salt Body Sphoto (9)crub

Here’s a natural way of exfoliating and preparing the skin for the spring/summer months. These basic ingredients can be found in almost all kitchen cupboards, though having the best ingredients you can afford does make a difference. Try to use extra virgin Olive Oil and sea salt (not vegetable oil and table salt!)

Preparation time is minutes and the results are amazing, use this scrub once every two weeks or as needed.  You can substitute the salt for raw cane sugar if you have sensitive skin.


½ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons rock salt/sugar

Preparation method

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl, mix into an almost past like consistency. You will need to crush the salt with a pestle so the mixture is easy to handle and rub into the skin.

Standing in the shower apply the mixture directly onto dry skin and massage lightly (don’t over scrub) rinse off with warm water. Your skin should feel as smooth as silk.

There are many oils and salts to choose from so why not experiment till you find the right one for you!

Bridal Makeup, Bridal Eye Makeup

By swalford


Brides-to-be contact me because they want to create the perfect look for their wedding day, the correct balance of glamour and subtlety to stand out but not to look too made up.

Bringing out the eyes to make them sparkle and to bring out their natural beauty, is of importance to me as a makeup artist.

This is where eye lashes can play an important part. When most brides think False lashes they may think heavy, long and stand out fake, this can be the case if you pick the wrong ones.

My approach to creating stand out, knock out sexy and sultry eyes is by using individual lashes to enhance my client’s natural beauty. Eye lash extensions are included in the bridal and bridesmaids makeup package.

Why not find out how I can help you create the perfect look for you with a free consultation.
