For the best results, massage it into your arms and legs when you’re in the bath or shower for one to two minutes before rinsing.

This is another one to try after a hectic day for almost instant relief.

The Feel-Good Confidence Booster
Talking of crystals, this body scrub also harnesses their exfoliating powers, but uses pink Himalayan salt crystals to help banish dull and dry skin instead. MSM and lots of other health-boosting vitamins, minerals, enzymes and omegas also help to leave skin smooth, soft and radiant, which Oskia’s founder, Georgie Cleeve says goes hand-in-hand with being body confident.
