Cheapest Beauty Treatments Ever!
What do Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum and Brooke Burke have in common? They know they don’t have to leave the house and spend lots of money to look gorgeous. It only takes pennies to get silky smooth skin, reduce the look of cellulite, banish bloat and much more.
The secret is Epsom Salt. It’s easy to find, easy to use and easy to afford. I’ll share with you how to use it for beauty treatments and if you have any left over, CBS News can tell you how to use it to help your flowered plants grow lush and beautiful too.
Kim Kardashian’s Treatment:
For the softest, smoothest skin ever, try this body scrub. Mix two cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender (or your favorite) essential oil. Use the mixture to gently slough away dry patches. It’s the same treatment many upscale spas use, without the upscale price. Added bonus: It can also help to lessen the appearance of cellulite!
Heidi Klum’s Treatment:
Victoria Secret models have nowhere to hide any bloat when they’re strutting the runway. Draw out excess fluids with this simple soak. Add two cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub; soak for at least 12 minutes. The magnesium in Epsom Salt is proven to relieve stress while the sulfates flush harmful toxins from the body. Soaking in the solution allows the magnesium sulfate to be absorbed into the body through your skin, expelling negative toxins and boosting serotonin levels, which will help boost your mood. If you’re just looking for some R&R, this soak also help quell migraines, improve sleep and reduce anxiety levels.
Brooke Burke’s Treatment:
If you’re a dancing queen, you might want to follow the same steps as Brooke Burke, winner of Dancing with the Stars. After a long night on the dance floor in stilettos, Brooke treats her feet with a soothing foot bath. Simply soak your soles in a foot bath of Epsom Salt to instantly reduce swelling. If you’re sore all over, add one cup of Epsom Salt to a tub of warm water. Soak for ten minutes.
