A doctor on TV gave the ingredients for a facial scrub using sea salt, sugar, olive oil, and lime juice. I have lost the copy I wrote down. Does anyone know of such a facial?

Limes are chock full of antioxidants, which help fend off cancer, and the acid in lime juice can help brighten your skin! Use once a week to maintain a healthy glow.
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
A pinch of sea salt
Combine ingredients in a bowl, apply to face and let sit for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water and voila! Your face will be exfoliated, moisturized and brightened all at once!
Here you go. It was on the Doctors show, and I went to the website and got it for you.
Another great pampering for your hands is:
Just enough table salt in your hand (about half a teaspoon) and add enough Sweet almond oil to make the mixture moist.
This is also lovely on your feet, etc. The sea salt may be a little too harsh on your face, but caster sugar is finer and will still do the same job, just without the harshness, as the salt or sugar is actually 'cutting' your skin. Very quick and easy.

I have heard that sea sSalt is supposed to be good for clearing up acne. I know when I go to the ocean my face does always clear up.
