DIY:: Strawberry Brown Sugar Body Scrub
We've reached the breaking point: January's blustery weather has started to play havoc on our skin! Recently, my hands have been so dry, they're almost painful.
So, to fight back against old man winter, I've created my very own exfoliating body scrub, complete with all-natural ingredients. You'll be amazed at how easy and inexpensive this is to make. In fact, you probably already have the supplies at home.
Strawberry Brown Sugar Body Scrub
1 cup brown sugar
Olive oil or almond oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4-5 strawberries, crushed (if frozen, thaw)
Put the brown sugar into a mixing bowl and add enough oil to make the sugar moist, but not wet. Add honey, lemon juice and crushed strawberries. Mix well to fully incorporate ingredients.
To use: Simply put a quarter sized amount of the scrub in your hand and gently scrub fingers, palms and backs of hands. Rinse with warm water and follow with a hand moisturizer.
The result: Good-bye dry skin... Hello smooth, silky softness! Store scrub in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
