To be honest up until today I have never used a body scrub, I never really needed a reason to. Summer is coming thank goodness, Spring has brought tons and tons of rain. I decided to use some spray tan to get my mind into the summer mood or try to at least. I was doing some research and saw that using a body scrub before you use spray tan is the best way to make the tan last longer. Since I was using the spray tan today, I needed to resort to things I had in my house already. After using the scrub my skin was SO SOFT no wonder why people like using this. I naturally have soft skin but dangggg this stuff is like magic. I wanted to share how I made my scrub –
- 1 cup cane sugar – brown sugar – This one is the most gentle on skin which is great because I have sensitive skin.
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (give or take) – you don’t want the sugar to get soupy so only pour a tablespoon at a time and mix it in before adding more.
- This is optional but I added a few drops of vitamin E – this is an extremely beneficial vitamin for your skin, I use it everyday in general.
- Favorite essential oil – this is just for the smell and makes it feel like more of a spa experience.
I will definitely be using this more often, now my skin feels super soft and moisturized!
