DIY Winter Scrubs!!!

Quick Tip Monday!!!

Here’s a previous blog I did early last year that I thought was worth mentioning again. Enjoy!

A scrub a day will keep the itch and dryness away!

Hey Guys! Are you tired of the feeling you get when your skin is in bad need of repair? The dryness, the itch, the feeling that an alligator has just jumped up and landed on your skin?! “OH the humanity!!!”

That winter dry air, that briskly wind and not to mention the snow can reek havoc on our skin.

But no worries. Here’s three DIY scrubs that are sure to get your skin back in tip top condition and will make you feel like you’ve just came back from a summer vacation where you basked in nothing but the sun and sand.

FYI: Sand is a natural skin exfoliate.

Lets Get Scrubbing…….. (Click for a list of natural scrubs)

Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup of your favorite oil
2 Tbs honey
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract (or 5 – 10 drops of your favorite essential oil)
1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
Directions: 
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
 
To Use: 
Apply the sugar scrub to your face, neck and throat. Be careful not to scrub to hard. Use a circular motion and work the scrub into your forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Avoid the eye area completely. This skin is delicate and should never be exfoliated with a scrub.
Rinse the face using warm water and finish with a nice cool splash of water to close pores.

Of course you can use this scrub on your whole body, too. Always finish with a cool rinse and pat skin dry with a clean towel.”
