Cinco de Skin Care: A Margarita-Inspired Routine
In honor of Cinco de Mayo—a day that typically involves salt rims and tequila—we’ve decided to celebrate the best way we know how: skin care style. A typical margarita recipe involves a little tequila, a bit of citrusy triple sec, some lime, and a dash of salt around the rim. While everyone else is sipping on their margaritas, we’re spending a little extra time taking care of our body’s largest organ, using these three fabulous products from The Body Shop! Hold the tequila and bring on the TLC.
From a Salt Rim to a Salt Scrub
To start our margarita-inspired skin care routine, you’ll need a little salt. We love The Body Shop’s Spa of the World Dead Sea Salt Scrub. It uses large coarse crystals to exfoliate your skin and lift off dead skin cells as you scrub. In addition to mineral-rich sea salt, the formula contains hydrating plant oils to moisturize your skin. To use, massage onto wet skin in the shower in circular motions, giving a little extra attention to your elbows and knees.
A Dash of Citrus
Instead of triple sec, get your orange flavor from The Body Shop’s Mega Satsuma Shower Gel. With its zesty citrus scent, this invigorating shower gel elevates your regular shower experience. The soap-free formula uses oils to give your skin moisture, leaving it soft and supple post-rinse.
A Twist of Lime
No margarita-inspired skin care routine would be complete without a twist of lime. For that, we turn to The Body Shop’s Virgin Mojito Body Butter. The hydrating lotion is perfect for applying right when you hop out of the shower to lock in moisture and has a refreshing scent of Caribbean lime
