This just might hurt a little…
SO. You’ve been hanging out in the sun all summer, flaunting your perfect pedicure glazed with “Teeny Bikini” or “Go Overboard” Essie polish, accented by your stunning T Strap Sandal tan.
You haven’t been drinking nearly enough water and you may have forgotten to reapply your SPF 30 once or twice. I just need you to mix a couple things from your kitchen together (If these items aren’t already in your pantry, head to the market and get up on this game…).
¾ Cup Raw Sugar
2 TB Coconut Oil
2 TB Almond Oil
2 TB Lavender Flowers
1 TS Rose Water
Once you mix everything together, take it into the shower with you and slough away. Concentrating on the knees, elbows and ankles. The sugar is gritty and your skin will turn red, you’ll want to cry a little and you might wonder how you will ever be able to survive child birth if you can’t even make it through a simple sugar scrub. You will endure. I never miss scrubbing my hips and thighs. Somehow this scrub temporarily banishes cellulite, giving you photo-shopped thighs for about two hours… if you ever find yourself in the need. Roses and Lavender definitely puts you in a mood too. Smooth skin and an exotic aroma - you’re in trouble.
Feel free to experiment with different scents, like rosemary and mint, or cinnamon. Used coffee grounds and ginger are delightful, but will do damage to your drain, so use that one outside if you can. This is also a great gift to bottle up and surprise your best girlfriends with, keep in mind that it is all natural and will not last as long as the scrubs you would buy in the store, ten days max. Enjoy!!
