Make your own brown sugar scrub

Lets face it, we all love to get pampered and it may be quite spendy to to fulfill all your
high maintenance needs and make it to the spa this time of year. Maybe you're saving
for your big spring break vacay or maybe you're and saving for a new car.
My point is, we all have things in life we are saving for at this very moment.
There are many spa recipes out there that are simple and easy to do,
so why live without the life's little luxuries of being a girl when you don't have to?

This super easy recipe will help you get one step closer to beautiful, healthy
looking skin, perfect for summer time!

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

You will need:
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup of Sweetened Almond Oil
1 tsp Vitamin E (I cut open a few Vitamin E liquid gel caps)
1/2-1 tsp of Vanilla Extract

note: you can add a little honey for extra moisturizing on dry skin

Mix all together and put into a nice jar or any other container you wish to use.

Shower in warm water and apply the sugar scrub from shoulders to feet
(focusing on rough patches) in nice circular motions. You do not need to press hard into
your skin to get a good exfoliation, this may cause redness and damage skin. Rinse off with
warm water and voila, your skin should feel better already. I recommend using this scrub
once a week and try to do this after you shave.
Remember, exfoliating may remove self-tanner,
so you may have to re-apply afterwards.

Although this isn't top of the line, it is a great affordable alternative compared to the
luxurious sugar body scrubs out there. Like I always say, it doesn't hurt to try!

Enjoy :)
