We look after our facial skin twice a day so why wouldn't we look after the rest of our body. Body scrubbing can really pamper your skin, making it feel softer, smoother and healthier.

.

Some of the main benefits of body scrubbing would be to look and feel healthier. The skin will feel better and so rejuvenated after a good scrub. You'll feel lighter in yourself and so much fresher. The fragrances from the body scrub also give your mood a lift. If you have any body bumps on the back of the arms, back, or thighs, scrubbing regularly will help remove them and prevent more from appearing. As it's the summer now, our bodies will be more on show.

It's usually easiest to do a body scrub in the shower or bath. I would always turn the water away in the shower or stand up in the bath. Apply your chosen scrub in circular motion; spend a bit of time doing this on all the parts of the body you can reach, before removing fully.

Doing a homemade scrub can be so beneficial and easy to do. One of my favourite homemade scrubs is half a cup of coffee, half a cup of sugar, two tablespoons or olive oil and a Vitamin E capsule. It smells amazing, feels great and leaves the skin silky smooth.

If coffee isn't for you, try a half cup of coconut oil and half a cup of sugar. Mix them together to make a thick paste and apply to your body in circular motion to help exfoliate the dead cells away. The oil leaves the skin silky soft and if you have any extra scrub left over it will keep for a few days in air tight jar.

Passenger numbers on local link buses across Kerry have increased by 1727% from 2020 to 2023 according to local Green Party Candidate for Killarney Diarmaid Griffin.

This is the highest increase nationally and is due to the investment by the Department of Transport during this government term.

“This service was lacking in former times, especially in rural areas and is a welcome addition to the countryside and villages of Kerry.’ says Green Party Candidate for Killarney,” said Griffin.

“While in the past, a taxi was the only option for those not cycling or driving. Now a service to Killarney is available every Friday morning from my townland of Barleymount. This is just one example of the network of bus routes criss-crossing the county thanks to local link.”

“This project is a notable success as the figures show. Investment in public transport helps alleviate congestion, increases community cohesion and reduces rural isolation. This is all welcome news for the locality,”
